Gondwana´s new clean and green glass crushing machine

Avatar of inke inke - 22. March 2016 - Gondwana Collection

A Gondwana team receiving the glass crusher machines from Steven and James Hirst.

The Gondwana Collection has acquired five glass crushing machines in order to address the environmental threat that discarded glass bottles are posing to the country.

The Gondwana Collection Namibia is the leading brand in Namibian eco-tourism and widely respected for its environmental entrepreneurship and green technologies employed at its establishments all over the country.

With the introduction of six brand-new glass crushers, Gondwana is doing its part in cleaning up the environment and clearing it of glass litter as well as managing waste glass that originates from the Gondwana Lodges.

Each glass crusher machine weighs 95kg and can crush an estimated 120-150kg of glass per hour, grinding it into non-hazardous glass sand: Glass sand can be mixed with cement and used for making decorative items and practical pieces like table tops and tiles.

Furthermore, glass sand can be used for making bricks and Gondwana hopes to become self-sufficient in this respect when smaller building projects are undertaken at the lodges.

The Gondwana Collection hopes that its own small step in recycling waste glass can become a giant leap for Namibia in glass waste awareness and a cleaner environment through innovative and efficient disposal of waste glass and the use of new products made out of it.

It is also hoped that the glass crusher technology and the use of glass sand can become an income generator for disadvantaged and marginalized communities in the vicinity of Gondwana lodges.

The user-friendly machine is produced in Johannesburg, South Africa, and distributed in Namibia by G-eco Glass. The father-son-duo, James and Steven Hirst, hope to start a trend of entrepreneurial opportunities which go hand in hand with cleaning up the country. The first machine was delivered to Namib Desert Lodge in early March. The others will be installed at the Canyon LodgeVillage and Roadhouse in Gondwana Canyon Park, at Etosha Safari Lodge and CampDamara Mopane Lodge and Namushasha River Lodge

The Gondwana Collection trusts that Namibians in general will commit to custodianship of nature and the environment and maintain the Namibia’s reputation as a world leader in the protection and sustainable use of its natural resources.
