Yellowknife Glass Recyclers Cooperative limited (YGR.Coop) is a workers cooperative dedicated to the transformation of bottles into glass art. In 1994, Matthew Grogono developed an innovative technique, to cut bottles, grind rims and polish vessels into beautiful glassware; with smooth brims, that feel wonderful in your hand.

Over two decades of experimentation, YGR.Coop developed a diversified line of products, including drinking vessels, vases, bowls and candle holders of various colours and sizes.

Each piece is enhanced when sandblasted with a northern pattern. Our patterns are created by local artists and reflect the unique ecology of northern Canada.

Our glassware is now in art galleries and gift stores in the Northwest Territories, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. It is growing in popularity because of its’ originality, its’ environmental innovation and its’ beauty.

We estimate that over 50, 000 bottles have been transformed by YGR.Coop since 1994 and we believe that it’s only the beginning.
