There is no doubt that the process of making our wonderful creations requires energy.
To bend, twist and blow ornaments we use propane gas. To slump, fuse, and anneal glass work we fire electric kilns to some pretty high temperatures. While constructing our modern stained glass windows and panels, electricity is there to power the soldering irons...and to keep everyone safe while working and creating we run ventilation and extraction fans.
And, of course, during the work day we definitely need the lights on to see what we are doing!
We are artisans producing custom and small-run production items, many of which are made from recycled or upcycled materials, and we are inherently environmentalists to the core. Naturally we want to connect to be part of a sustainable cleaner solution for the future.
How do we do it?
Hanscomb Glass is now officially bullfrogpowered! This means that we’re taking a big step to reduce the carbon emissions footprint of our business by choosing green electricity from Bullfrog Power, a Spark Power company. Although we are a small company we recognize the importance of addressing our environmental impact and are so happy to be using 100% renewable energy for some/all of our studio operations! The green energy we purchase not only reduces our environmental impact, it also supports the development of new community-based renewable energy projects across Canada, and helps lead the way to a renewably powered future.
How does Bullfrog Power do it?
Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. To learn more about Canada’s leading renewable energy provider check this out.
