Up-cycling at its best!
BOTTLES TO BEADS is an ethical business that trains and employs village women to produce beautiful glass beads and small glass items in Nepal.
Items are made from discarded glass bottles that litter cities and mountains tracks of Nepal and become a hazard to people and animals. Each item is individually painted in the unique style of the artist. All the tools needed to create these products are made by women using everyday objects.
It is not only about recycling. It is about a transformation: From a polluted to a cleaner environment, from unskilled and unpaid women to empowered income earners, from broken glass to jewelry and from trash to cash.
Clean up Nepal is offering a full-day workshop at the Bottles to Beads workshop where participants will be able to produce their own beads. This is open to only 10 individuals, so we will select individuals on a first come first served basis.

Time: 9am to 5pm (Lunch break in between)
Venue: Meet at Big Mart. Jhamsikhel at 9am. We will proceed to the workshop together.
Registration Fee: NRs 250 (includes all materials + lunch)
