HOW IT STARTED
“I never feel as alive as when I’m in nature and at sea, but it feels like wherever I go today I see plastic waste all around, from the most hidden beaches to the deep forests. It breaks my heart to see what we people are causing. So I decided to create a personal initiative and make it my mission in life to work for a sustainable planet. As a part of that came GoodGlass.” Johan, founder of GoodGlass
In Asia, they believe that green tea should always be enjoyed out of glass. Why? Because then you are able to see its beauty and fully enjoy its taste, and that’s half the pleasure of drinking it. What more, drinking out of glass is the purest way both for us and for our planet. This idea really resonated with us, and so the initial plan was born.
Which one is the right one?
The main idea behind GoodGlass is to do what we can to lower the world’s addiction to plastic bottles and other single-use products. We believe that if we offer high quality, reusable alternatives people will love, it will make it easier to live a life with less waste & lead to people passing this idea forward in a natural way.
To achieve this we needed a bottle that would fit every purpose and always be the answer to “Which bottle should I choose?” A bottle with simple, beautiful design, made of pure materials and great practical use. Something playful that would spark creativity! We also wanted it to be suitable for all drinks we love including tea, coffee, lemonades, fruit infusions and herbs.
& so GoodGlass was born!
We began a long thorough search for the right manufacturer that could meet our criterias. Finally, we found a place in the Zhejiang province in China, where they could achieve a high quality, care and fair production, which we can be proud of & where the materials for production come from local sources.
After long journey of experimenting with various designs on our friends, family and colleagues we finally found the best possible experience and GoodGlass was born! Since then, we have continually improved design and quality to ensure that GoodGlass meets all our requirements and it keeps getting better. The final product is so much more than we have ever hoped for and we are so happy to be able to share it with you!
And how did it continue?
Since GoodGlass first saw the light of the world in 2017, many things has happened including introducing GoodWood. It has been an exciting journey so far, it has not always been easy. There have been hard times & mistakes, but it has taught us a lot. The positive feedback from you is what keeps us going and makes it worth it! Everyday we get a little bit better and better at fulfilling our goals and offer you the best experience possible!
