Glasses Gone Wild

The fourth installation of the Protect Our World series, this set of glasses was designed to bring attention to four endangered animals: the lemur, the giant panda, the tiger and the sea turtle. These one-of-a-kind glasses feature the phrase "Protect Our Wildlife" in four languages: English, Spanish, Afrikaans/South African and French. Made from the bottom halves of reclaimed wine bottles that have been rescued from the North American waste stream, each glass is silk-screened in an eco-friendly manner. Made in Wisconsin. Each is one of a kind and will vary.

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

Featured in Family Circle magazine.

      I purchased these for my mother for mother's day. She loves uncommongoods.com! She had admired these glasses for a long time and I decided she deserved them. She was so happy with them. We both love how unique they are.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The product was delivered on the earlier side of the delivery estimate. The glasses were well protected and arrived in perfect condition.

        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.

            This is the 4th "environment awareness" set I've given my daughter-in-law. Our families support these efforts; the clear, green, and blue sets were previous gifts. These gifts have created quite a stir among friends at parties, as they are unique conversation starters. Please keep them in your inventory!

            The reason I only gave these 3 stars is due to their construction when compared to previous glasses in this line I have purchased. This is the fourth set I have purchased in the series and the "earth" and "water" sets are great. They are obviously old wine bottles. The "air" and "wildlife" sets are smaller in diameter and seem as if they're made to look like old wine bottles.

                I thought the glasses might be a little heavy or have thick rims, but that is not the case. They are lightweight with well-polished rims making them easy to drink from. I like the designs of the endangered species and the idea that part of the purchase price was donated to protect them. I use them regularly for everything from water to wine.

                I was given these glasses as a gift and liked them so much I recently bought them for a friend for her birthday. I like that they are recycled and durable. The only downside is that you shouldn't put them in the dishwasher due to the designs but it is worth it.

                  We bought these to complete the set and I didn't really like, but now that I have seen them in person, I love them. They are so much cuter in person.
