This week on The Patty-G Show, we had the honor of sitting down and discussing the entire life cycle of a glass bottle with Fran Trautmann, co-founder and CEO of Glass Half Full. She founded the organization while in college and set out to solve a problem in her area, glass recycling. Living in New Orleans, LA she knew there was nothing that was happening to help solve the problem of recycling glass bottles. After hours of research and sifting through Google results, she and her co-founder discovered there was in fact a process that allowed you to turn a glass bottle back into the sand in which it was created from. Fueled with this knowledge, she began researching where to purchase the machines in order to complete this cycle. A GoFundMe account later and they were off to the races. A couple years later and they have filled their 40,000sqf warehouse with machinery and bottles and have revolutionized the recycling process in her area and begun helping to restore the coastlines of Louisiana.
Thank you to each and everyone of you for helping support the show. It is through each of you that we are able to continuously share stories like these every week.
