Water you gonna do for the environment?

The third in the "Protect Our World" series, these striking, deep blue glasses are made from the bottom halves of wine bottles rescued before reaching the landfill. A beautifully silk-screened design of swimming fish accompanies the words "Protect Our Waters," written in four languages: English, Spanish, Afrikaans/South African and French. Made in Wisconsin. Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Complete your collection with Protect Our Earth, Protect Our Air, 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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

        Well, she's a pisces, so the fish theme was a good fit. The deep blue glass compliments her kitchen, style and color palate.

            These glasses are beautiful, very unique, have a terrific keep our waters clean message. I love that they are in 4 different languages because it is a universal message. You can still see the bottom of the wine bottles so it's a subtle reminder that they are recycled. Such a feel good gift!

                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. Blue is my husband's favorite.

                  Obviously, it's great to be able to use all those bottles and the glasses are very attractive and easy to use. I have given many of them as gifts in the past and they were much appreciated.

                    I bought this as a graduation gift, and loved that it was recycled and adorable. It was heavier than I thought they'd be, and weren't as smooth as I anticipated (I thought the consistency would be more like wine bottles, but since they're the bottom, it's heavy). Otherwise, very satisfied and can't wait to give them!

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The delivery was surprisingly good! The cups came in a bigger box with bubble wrap (the kind with the big air, not the small bubbly kind for popping). Also, the cups were in the cup takeout containers (the kind you see at Starbucks) but on both top and bottom, so there was no chance of breaking! Very impressed.

                      Bought these as a gift. They came securely packaged. I opened to inspect them and fell in love immediately. Definitely wanted to keep these! They are a perfect size, they're beautiful, they're sturdy, and you can use them for anything: water, wine, juice, etc. Love the whole series, but these are definitely our favorites.

                        Bought these as a gift for a friend graduating with a Masters in Environmental Engineering (thesis was water specific) and they are PERFECT! The color is absolutely beautiful. Only reason I didn't give them 5 stars was because they have not been washed yet and I'm worried about the graphic rubbing off.

                        I was given these glasses as a gift when I got my first apartment. They are slightly different in that they don't say Protect Our Water, but they are the same glass with the fish. So I assume I just have an earlier version, but I do know they were purchased from Uncommon Goods.

                        I LOVE these glasses, they're my favorite. The color is gorgeous, the fish are such a nice touch, and they are just a quality piece all around. My only complaint, is that lately the fish are starting to come off. I have one glass where you can just barely see where they were and I was using another glass the other day and some of the white from the fish was rubbing off onto my hand. So I think that one will be faded soon too.

                        I don't know if I've been washing them wrong (using a dishwasher, top rack) or what but I am very sad to see the design rubbing off. Otherwise they have been absolutely perfect.
