(Guatemala City) Grønn recollects glass bottles from restaurants from Antigua Guatemala, transports them to NGO's facilities where they are cut, hand-sanded and polished to create upcycled glasses and planters. The NGO (Guatemaltecos Extraordinarios) works with kids that have been targeted to be at risk of falling in gang activity or drug use/distribution. Grønn employs their mothers so kids can have better opportunities and a brighter future. If mothers can provide for their families, while giving example to their kids of work and perseverance it is more likely for kids to continue studying and be productive in Guatemalan Society. Guatemaltecos Extraordinarios helps educate kids, Grønn employs mothers and together we reduce future violence in Guatemala.
