Rawlings Ethical Glass CORE Sculpture
“This installation aims to connect audiences, and bring attention to global water issues. Essential to all, water is life – and is at the CORE of all humanity.”
Calum Hall, Co-Founder, Creative Debuts
Access to clean water is still out of reach for 844 million people globally. D&D London’s Mindful City campaign is raising money for WaterAid, to help bring clean water, decent toilets and better hygiene towards communities living in poverty across the world.
The sculpture is created with Belu mineral water bottles made from Rawlings Ethical Glass. With at least 45% recycled content, our bottles contain the highest recycled content possible in clear glass in the UK. As well as this all of our profits go to our partner, WaterAid.
Clever ideas and independent partnerships help reduce our carbon footprint. In 2013 this meant collaboration with Bristol’s glass packaging specialists Rawlings. We worked together on the design of Ethical Glass, a new initiative to create lighter bottles which replaced both our old 750ml and 330ml clear glass bottles. This is now the lightest clear glass bottle family available in the UK.
During the campaign, D&D London are adding an optional £1 guest donation on every bill throughout January and into early February to go towards WaterAid’s life-saving work. As part of WaterAid’s Untapped campaign any donations made before 31 January will be doubled by the UK government.
The sculpture can be found at D&D London’s Fiume restaurant in Battersea up until 13 February.
