Glass Coral Nursery
Discover our reef restoration work with eco-friendly cement and recycled glass in Malaysia
Recycled glass coral nurseries – Tioman, Malaysia
In 2017, we started rebuilding degraded coral reefs using recycled glass and cement made out of crushed glass. Each bloc can hold 6 corals. We started My Coral Garden, an Association that allows individuals to fund reef restoration efforts.
Circular economy – from waste to coral reefs
Glass is a eco-friendly substrate that is commonly used for reef restoration. As the cement that holds each bottle is also made from crushed glass, these coral nurseries are a circular economy tool: we transform waste into coral nurseries and fish habitats.
