Marmite Glass Jar Recycling Day


Bottle Alley Glass, the Yorkshire based glass bottle recycling business organised a Marmite glass jar recycling day in aid of the charity PWSA UK on Saturday 17th November 2012 at MUSE Ale & Wine bar in Wetherby Yorkshire. Over £100 was raised for the charity through donations, raffles and sale of Duncan’s Beads special edition recycled glass Marmite jar jewellery. The 100 jars collected on the day will be de-labelled, crushed into various sized cullet and then fused into products by Bottle Alley Glass. An order for a House sign has already been received and ideas for a special Marmite glass bowl is being finalised by co-owner Philippa Ashbee.


The event was supported by MTT MUSE manager Nicola Outhwaite and her team who dressed in Love/hate it tee shirts as well as selling Marmite Love it Hate it food on the day with a donation being given to PWSA UK for every dish sold.


Duncan’s Beads received two Marmite jars from Bottle Alley Glass and hand crafted the jars into a selection of Marmite special edition bracelet, earrings, necklace and key ring and generously donated these to the event. Further orders were taken on the day.


The event was attended by some 30 members of the Geocaching fraternity who came along to log their visit for the “Love it Hate it” event and enjoy the Muse  hospitality.


Bottle Alley Glass owned by Daughter and Father team Philippa and Alan Ashbee buys unwanted waste glass bottles and jars and recycles them into sheets that are then fabricated into work  & counter tops, wall & floor tiles, splash backs and vanity units, shelves and feature light panels as well as tea points, cafe bars and trophy awards. The product is 100% recycled bottle glass with no added colourings or resins that is 100% recyclable at the end of its life.


Bottle Alley Glass also uses 100% sourced green energy to fire its three large kilns with most of the energy used on an off peak tariff.
