Founded by local nonprofit GreenVI, this outdoor glass-blowing studio on Cane Garden Bay in Tortola recycles the daily refuse from the local beach bars—beer and booze bottles—to fashion beautiful hand-blown glass delicacies, from starfish paperweights to turtle ornaments to flower glass sculptures. The GreenVI Glass Studio has trained a number of locals in the intricacies of glass-blowing, and a local octogenarian makes cloth bags out of donated clothing to carry them home in. It’s open daily 9am to 5pm.
