Meet the Artisan
Marcela, Green Glass Chile
One of the many stories that combine to make up Green Glass Chile is that of Marcela Cofre. Marcela, motivated by a need to support her family, began experimenting with different materials. Having taught herself the art of glass working, she created a micro business from her home and has become successful enough to not only support her and her family but over thirty other families as well. Marcela is passionate about giving those who work with her a decent wage and better quality of life. She was one of the initial sponsors behind the inception of Green Glass Chile, passing on to a new generation of young entrepreneurs the same commitment to fair trade and sustainability.
