Go Green!

These recycled glasses are made from the bottom halves of Bordeaux bottles that were "rescued" on the way to the landfill. A beautifully etched branch design is accompanied by the phrase 'Protect Our Earth' in four languages: English, Spanish (Proteja Nuestra Tierra), Afrikaans/South African (Bewaar Ons A Arde) and French (Proteqez Notre Terre). Made in Wisconsin. Sold as a set of 4. Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Complete your collection with Protect Our Air, Protect Our Water, and Protect Our Wildlife glasses.

Uncommon Knowledge: Each year, roughly 300 tons of glass bottles are donated by wineries and recycling organizations across the country to be turned into glasses like these. And because they are made from prefab bottles that don't need to be crushed or melted, the glasses use less energy to create than normal glassware.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

    Comments about PROTECT OUR EARTH GLASSES - SET OF 4:

    These glasses are durable and stable, feel good in the hand, have a beautiful design and important quote, and are a perfect example of reuse. They were from my children as a birthday gift and have become our most used glasses. We have a nature store and are opening a new area called The Green Room which features products and resources on how to green your life. We want to carry these and other products on your site. What a find!

            I bought these to add to an another set I have. We loved the first ones.
            The only problem is the dimple in the bottom. You are left with a half inch of water in it when you wash it by hand or in the diswasher. In our original set the bottoms were flat.
            Great concept, poor design decision.

              1)These glasses replaced the glasses we received as a wedding gift. They broke very easily. I love the glasses because of their size, but frankly I think they are overly priced even for recycled.

              2)I was a little disappointed when I received my second set. The glass is much thicker and it has the "bubble" in the bottom of the glasses. Not as nice as the first set.

                The whole family loves these. We bought the complete series. I keep them in a glass cabinet and they look beautiful. But we still use them daily. Everyone in the family has a different favorite color. Green is my favorite.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was very quick. However one of the boxes wasn't packaged correctly and was broken. I contacted customer service that night. They were extremely friendly & helpful and and they had a new set out to me immediately. Excellent service!!

                      I gave these away as a Christmas gift. I thought the bubble would take up most of the space inside the cup, but it really doesn't. They are very nice.
