Made in Bethlehem Chirstmas Tree ornaments

The Giacaman family took it upon themselves to develop a small business to help sustain not only themselves financially, but to do so in such a way that in the long-term will help to sustain the environment. After collecting glass bottles that have been discarded on the street, they cut the glass into various shapes to suit the design of the ornament. Their ingenuity and resourcefulness has allowed them to counteract the general apathy Palestinians have towards recycling and the environment. It has also helped them find a to keep their family together in Bethlehem with a more stable income.  BBC is excited to display such creative works in our Gift Shop.
