The Washington Glass School & Studio

The Washington Glass School & Studio (www.washglass.com) is a creative glass educational program. Located in Mt. Rainier , Maryland , the Washington Glass School & Studio serves students, artists, and the general public to explore techniques in all aspects of glass. So how does the Washington Glass School & Studio go green?

The Washington Glass School & Studio’s most important motivational factors of their environmental efforts are based on moral and philosophical reasons, not just money. For example, they are one of the few companies finding a way to use recycled window glass; approximately 1% to 2% of window glass is recycled nationally opposed to up to 40% of bottle glass being recycled. The Washington Glass School also teaches classes and workshops, showing students how to recycle their own glass. Therefore, the Washington Glass School & Studio makes a difference to the environment.

With these moral and philosophical motivations, they do save money by using “previously owned” window glass which is usually free (instead of purchasing new glass). For example, the Washington Glass School & Studio uses glass from a pre-existing building that is being demolished to make art glass panels for the new building, most notably for the Bethesda Safeway http://washingtonglassschool.com/studio/public-art-monuments.
