Unless you stock your kitchen cabinets with recycled jars, you'll be hard-pressed to find drinking ware any greener than that sold by Wisconsin-based Green Glass Company. Read on for what differentiates these glasses and where they can be purchased.
The Green Glass Company is wonderfully innovative, giving used bottles second lives by splitting them to create new goblets and tumblers. But the Green Glass Company doesn't stop at creating two drinking vessels from one bottle, and that's what differentiates their product: they also "reinforce" the glasses back to their original strength, meaning fewer breakages (i.e. less matter entering the waste stream).
The glasses pictured above sell in sets of four for $32.50. They are available on the Green Glass Company's website or from local retailers.
