The slow movement philosophy

The slow movement philosophy
It means something that does not progress or sell at a fast pace but that gradually shows activity, the aim is to promote living more calmly as a way of having a healthier and fuller life. Doing everything at the right speed instead of rushing things. Often, that means slowing down, doing less, and prioritising spending the right amount of time on the things that matter most to you. 
Kate Fletcher in the Ecologist in 2007, summarises, “slow is not the opposite of fast – there is no dualism – but a different approach in which designers, buyers, retailers and consumers are more aware of the impacts of products on workers, communities and ecosystems.” 

Since the creation of the brand we knew we wanted to make something that was sustainable and as environmentally conscious as possible, so we started using discarded glass as raw material for our pieces. We combine artisanal production methods with traditional techniques in which glass is the main protagonist. For us, sustainability also means creating durable pieces that can even be passed on to the next generations, in this sense we always work to improve our products. We do not focus on fashion trends nor do we seek to massify our production, but create timeless pieces that reflect joyful and colour-loving spirits. We use sustainable packaging and recycled materials as a way to reduce CO2 emissions. We think of all the ways we can to produce products that are in harmony with Nature and ethically obtained.

Recycling process of glass windows
Your old windows and doors should be classified as hazardous waste and should be turned over directly to your local solid waste facility for proper handling and disposal. Ideally, the provider of your door, skylight, or window replacement should provide you with adequate information.
The glass portion of your windows and doors is most probably tempered and manufactured with special tints, laminates, and coatings to make it energy efficient. As a result, they have a complex chemical composition, making them difficult to recycle, unlike glass bottles. That is why recycling bins all over town only accept glass bottles for recycling.
However, some private companies work by melting recycled glass windows and turning them into fibreglass. You can also make a few calls and get in touch with local artists in your area if they work with glass!
