SpringLeap, an online design community, and The Glass Recycling Company are collaborating to raise awareness about the benefits of recycling glass through a t-shirt design contest called ‘Glass going Green’.
The competition closes on 23 April and the first prizewinner will take home US$1800 (R15 000). The brief is to create an eco-friendly t-shirt design that illustrates the importance of glass recycling and the positive effect it can have on our environment.
There are many good reasons to recycle glass but most importantly it’s a way to lessen pollution that contributes to global warming. A product made from recycled glass contributes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than one new bottle produced from raw materials.
