BackYard Sapphire, Bringing Glass Recycling To Acadiana

BackYard Sapphire, Bringing Glass Recycling To Acadiana

Posted: Jun 18, 2021 4:52 PM

BackYard Sapphire's, Tina and Dawn, joined News15 at Noon virtually to show us how they recycle glass in Acadiana! 

From their Facebook Page:

BackYard Sapphire is a grassroots movement towards sustainability and making our footprints smaller. We concentrate in taking glass and crushing it back to sand. We significantly shrink the volume of waste and create reuse of the end product.

Using glass mulch reduces weed growth. It compacts in our sized layers and keeps the weeds that do root to a minimum and towards the surface, so they are easier to pull. It doesn't blow away with a leaf blower. It doesn't hold moisture and get mildewy and moldy.
