These lampshades are ingenious and earth-saving. They are recycled, preventing landfill and create a beautifully quirky lampshade, especially when slung low and in a row over a kitchen table or work surface. The addition of coconut string and fine wire injects an individual artisan touch. Somebody definitely had a light bulb moment and by purchasing these, you?ll be helping as well as styling. Supplier Info: The supplier of these lamps is a company that specialises in recycling and is based on the tiny island of Zanzibar, just off of Tanzania. It is an incredibly forward-thinking and motivated company that is determined to make a difference both locally and globally. They employ women, against tradition, and local teenagers with no or little education in an environment that encourages non-gender specific roles and teach their employees new skills. They also train them about the workings of the business and the process of manufacture of their products from the beginning to the end user, including pricing and environmental impact. Waste cannot be processed on the island and most of the time glass bottles are buried under the ground so the company gives talks and presentations to the local community on the impact of this and how they are aiming to combat it. They collect the wooden parts for their products at local wood and coconut factories and when their orders are quite big, they work with local craftspeople who carve the wood. The company provides loans if needed and for a very small contribution workers can enjoy nutritious meals prepared by the cook. A bonus is given when they have been working hard to finish an order and at special festival days everyone receives an extra financial contribution. They also provide uniforms for their staff to create an ethos of pride, equality and belonging. They help staff to open bank accounts so that they can save money and the company's hopes and dreams for the future include a bigger, visitor-friendly and modern workshop, use of solar energy and for at least 60% of their workforce to be women. Their company name means 'yours' in Swahili and this is an USP they peddle when approaching local businesses as in your waste turned into a nice product for you. Why we love this product!
