Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) September 29, 2014
Bambeco, the leading brand in stylish and sustainable home furnishings and décor was named the 2014 Natural Living category winner at the 29th annual Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore. The Baltimore headquartered e-retailer took home the top award for their Confetti Recycled Wine Glasses, which transform trash into treasure, and will be recognized with this industry nod at the 2014 Product Showcase Award Ceremony on Saturday, September 27, 2014.
“At bambeco, we are providing a platform through which ‘sustainability’ is transformed from a movement into a household word. Our recycled glassware is a perfect example of our commitment to change the world through products with purpose. We are thrilled to be recognized with this industry accolade for our efforts to impact the world in a positive way,” said Susan Aplin, Co-Founder and CEO of bambeco.
Part of the brand’s artisan glassware collection, bambeco’s Confetti Recycled Wine Glasses transform soda bottles into works of art. These exclusive glassware creations can be seen in an array of colors, shapes and sizes and are made by skilled artisans who melt broken pieces of soda bottles and artfully reform them. Using techniques passed down generation to generation, no two finished glasses are exactly alike. Each is made entirely by hand and mouthblown in a centuries old tradition.
“The resurgence in local farming and farm-to-table dining illustrates the importance to consumers about what they are eating and where and how it is made. Consumers want to know more about their food sources and the ingredients in what they purchase. I believe this has naturally transitioned into an increased awareness for consumers to feel good about what they are serving their food on and drinking from. Bambeco’s products such as the Confetti Recycled Wine Glasses are a natural extension for the organic consumer,” said Aplin.
The East Coast’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event, the Natural Products Expo East welcomes more than 23,000 attendees and 1,277 exhibitors at the Baltimore Convention Center. The event’s goal is to bring more health to more people and is produced by New Hope Natural Media. Natural Products Expo East awards winners are known for showcasing the most innovative products within the past year. Finalists are selected by and voted on by all attendees of Expo East.
