Our Mission

Justice Industries, and Just.Glass specifically, focuses on hiring valuable contributors who have been seen as “unemployable”. Our staff and employees come from a variety of backgrounds, including students, teachers, business-owners, entrepreneurs, ministers, caretakers, writers and parents and are all survivors of trauma such as homelessness, addiction, incarceration, mental illness and domestic violence. We seek to provide a clear track of upward mobility—maximizing each person’s personal growth, professional development, and overall opportunity for expanded income and self-sustainability.

Donate to us and sign up for Just.Glass today.



Just.Glass partners with local schools and Kwanis. In addition to creating jobs and making an environmental impact, each group receives $3 per month on every active enrollee obtained through their Just.Glass program.




Nearly 95% of glass in Nashville goes directly into our landfill. When you recycle through Just.Glass you’re creating employment and making a visible difference in our community!

35% of people experiencing homelessness report “Loss of Job” as the leading trigger. Justice Industries fulfills our primary purpose by providing paid work for our employees through our social enterprises.


A Ton

of fresh air

More than one ton of natural resources are saved for every ton of glass recycled and more than one ton of carbon dioxide is reduced for every six tons of recycled glass. Subscribe to Just.Glass today for just $16 per month (about the cost of three cold brew coffees, or a really nice pair of socks) and breathe easier.

I knew that if I just had the opportunity, I could show someone that I can do the work and that I can work hard. Justice Industries gave me that opportunity to show that I can be dependable and do the job. All I needed was a chance.
