The Glass Recycling Company and Zomato Event


I recently joined 19 other bloggers with Zomato and The Glass Recycling Company, for a very unique event hosted by CNR Cafe in Craighall, Johannesburg.

As The Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) celebrates 10 years of encouraging glass recycling in South Africa, the team partnered with Zomato to celebrate restaurants that recycle glass.

So many wine bottles, beer bottles, pasta jars and other glass products are being sent to the landfill every day by South Africans which is a huge waste of resources, as glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled infinitely.
TGRC certainly has a #Heart4Glass and hosted the blogger event to let guests know how easy it is to recycle glass. TGRC also invited the incredible Mobius Loop Glass Band to entertain the crowd. They believe in making music with the environment in mind. The band craft their instruments from glass, using old bottles and wine glasses to create beautiful sounds and melodies.
