Ripple Glass adds local art to the recycling bin

Kansas City, Mo – Ripple Glass made a name for itself in the recycling business.

The Kansas City-based company recycles tons of glass each year, keeping it out of area landfills.

It’s known for those purple recycling bins, but the next time you recycle your glasses you might notice something different.

Ripple Glass teamed up with five local artists and asked them to decorate ten purple donation barrels.

Those bins are then placed in ten new locations throughout Kansas City. They join the 100-plus purple bins already out on both sides of the state line.

The artwork highlights the city and the importance of recycling. Ripple Glass hopes it also catches the eye of people thinking about recycling.

“This is the first touch point right? You see Art and you dig deeper and go, this is recycling and hey I saw a beautiful art barrel at Sunfresh and I’m going to recycle some glass,” said Sam Yates-Meier, Yup Yup Design Artist..
