The Glass Studio, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Following a recommendation from a friend (thanks, Tara!), we stopped by to visit the glass studio near Cane Garden Bay.  They have quite an operation going and it's all in the name of going green and doing good things for the island!  

They take used bottles from the bars and restaurants and turn them into beautiful works of art.  Not only does it help reduce waste on an island that is not equipped for recycling, but it teaches employable skills to locals.  We were given a fully narrated demonstration and it was quite fascinating.  

It was well worth the visit.  And of course we left with some glass treasures for souvenirs!
