A few years ago, El Celler de Can Roca, the two-time recipient of the award for best restaurant in the world, launched Roca Recicla, a pioneering initiative in the sector that aims to reduce waste generated to zero through the use of design.
Rocarecicla wants to take one step beyond recycling by transforming the empty glass bottles generated at the restaurant into tableware pieces that can be reused.
“We use creativity so as to give a second life to these bottles, turning a supposed useless object into something useful and beautiful, involving in the process people in risk of labour exclusion that are also given a second chance” says Joan Roca.
