At WOMAD (World of Music and Dance) last month, I came across some fabulous recycled homeware products that I want to share. Made from recycled paper, these place mats are strong, durable and stylish.
Naturally I asked whether they were heat-resistant and strong enough to withstand straight-from-the-oven casserole dishes, or hot plates.
Whether you want a vodka bottle transformed into a nibbles dish, a wine glass that was once a beer bottle, or a funky vase – recycled glass is unique, eco and stylish – and the way forward.
Which is a good thing because we get through 3.6 million tonnes of glass every year in the UK alone.
Green Glass are specialists in glass recycling and work in conjunction with African countries to make the funky gadgets and goblets, tumblers and flutes we want adorning our kitchen shelves and cupboards.
