Spring is in full swing and we have prepared for you a tip for a real boost that we have fallen in love with! Just as everything begins to wake up, we begin to feel the flood of new fresh energy.

Do you know green foods?

Our mind and body tend to clean itself, and we unconsciously seek out food and supplements that help us to do so. Now during spring, it’s mainly the various green foods like young nettle, spinach, parsley, bear garlic (from which you can make excellent pesto) and other herbs, grasses and wild plants. Green foods contain the chlorophyll pigment, which is basically concentrated sunlight, a wide range of minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and other substances that help us clean our body while nourishing and providing it with energy. 

However, today’s world is hectic and sometimes we can’t enjoy these delicacies in sufficient quantities. In this case, we can use the help of various so-called superfoods, such as green algae (chlorella and spirulina), or young green grass (barley and wheat) in concentrated amounts. We at GoodGlass have recently focused on young green barley – not only because it tastes so fresh and feels more natural for us, but it is also “stuffed” with nutrients!

What are the benefits of green barley?

Green barley is actually the dried juice of young barley green shoots which is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and other nutrients. Simply everything a small plant needs to grow into a large and powerful plant! It’s strengthening our body, providing it with energy and contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system. Due to the large amount of antioxidants and chlorophyll, barley has strong detoxifying effects. It cleanse, regenerate and reduces the acidity of our body and protects it from the emergence of many civilization diseases and premature aging. Such a small big helper!

How to prepare and use green barley?

Preparation of this healthy elixir is very simple – just mix one teaspoon of green powder with water. The amount depends on the taste. We recommend to fill GoodGlass with water up to two-thirds in order to provide sufficient space for shaking and insert a filter to ensure good mixing. Then just shake for 10 seconds and the drink is ready! And when to use this miracle? Preferably in the morning on an empty stomach, so that all nutrients can be absorbed as efficiently as possible. We can also drink it during the day, whenever we feel tired.

What to think about when choosing young barley?

The young barley has an excellent quality – it binds heavy metals to itself and carry them away from the body. It is therefore important that it grows in clean soil so we don’t take in any undesirable substances. Fortunately, today there are many companies that carefully monitor the quality of their products and test each lot. We tested green barley from our local Raw & Bio store Vitalvibe and the international company Green Ways – both get their barley from clean soils in Utah, where there are ideal conditions. We dare to say that both products are of sufficient quality and have a great taste. Try this elixir of health too!

Let’s give our body green. Cheers!

HOW IT STARTED

“I never feel as alive as when I’m in nature and at sea, but it feels like wherever I go today I see plastic waste all around, from the most hidden beaches to the deep forests. It breaks my heart to see what we people are causing. So I decided to create a personal initiative and make it my mission in life to work for a sustainable planet. As a part of that came GoodGlass.” Johan, founder of GoodGlass

In Asia, they believe that green tea should always be enjoyed out of glass. Why? Because then you are able to see its beauty and fully enjoy its taste, and that’s half the pleasure of drinking it. What more, drinking out of glass is the purest way both for us and for our planet. This idea really resonated with us, and so the initial plan was born.

Which one is the right one?

The main idea behind GoodGlass is to do what we can to lower the world’s addiction to plastic bottles and other single-use products. We believe that if we offer high quality, reusable alternatives people will love, it will make it easier to live a life with less waste & lead to people passing this idea forward in a natural way.

To achieve this we needed a bottle that would fit every purpose and always be the answer to “Which bottle should I choose?” A bottle with simple, beautiful design, made of pure materials and great practical use. Something playful that would spark creativity! We also wanted it to be suitable for all drinks we love including tea, coffee, lemonades, fruit infusions and herbs.

& so GoodGlass was born!

We began a long thorough search for the right manufacturer that could meet our criterias. Finally, we found a place in the Zhejiang province in China, where they could achieve a high quality, care and fair production, which we can be proud of & where the materials for production come from local sources.

After long journey of experimenting with various designs on our friends, family and colleagues we finally found the best possible experience and GoodGlass was born! Since then, we have continually improved design and quality to ensure that GoodGlass meets all our requirements and it keeps getting better. The final product is so much more than we have ever hoped for and we are so happy to be able to share it with you!

And how did it continue?

Since GoodGlass first saw the light of the world in 2017, many things has happened including introducing GoodWood. It has been an exciting journey so far, it has not always been easy. There have been hard times & mistakes, but it has taught us a lot. The positive feedback from you is what keeps us going and makes it worth it! Everyday we get a little bit better and better at fulfilling our goals and offer you the best experience possible!
