Delectable design

Presentation can make or break a dish since, as they say, people eat with their eyes. Give your guests something to feast their eyes on at your next dinner party with these beautiful, handmade serving platters. Made completely from recycled glass, each plate is first hand-cut before the color and design is hand-screened onto the glass. Available with either a heart or a tree design, these platters are sure to be a hit at your next party! Made in Pennsylvania

Since 2005, Plates With Purpose has raised awareness for and donated over $150 thousand dollars to twelve non-profit organizations. Founded by Mary Irwin-Scott, President of the Riverside Design Group, it's a family-oriented company that takes community service very seriously. Irwin-Scott's daughter and Riverside Creative Director, Cassandra Ott, frequently collaborates with her mother and father, as well as Pittsburgh architect, Grant Scott, to design plates for various agencies and causes. Some Riverside beneficiaries have included the AIDS Task Force & Persad Center, Pittsburgh's Habitat for Humanity, and Court Appointed Special Advocates, a volunteer organization that helps abused and neglected children. Artist Judy Smilow also lent her design to benefit the Alzheimer's Association and honor her father after his long struggle with the disease. Each product in the Plates With Purpose line is simple, clean and inspiring, adding a delicate touch to any table and community awareness to the home.

This is by far my favorite product in the Uncommom Goods catalog! It is a beautiful and thoughtful gift for just about anyone, has special meaning to many, and supports truly amazing causes. If anyone you know is dealing with any of the causes the plates represent --- you will be doing an amazing this by giving them this gift. I have also given this as a gift to a friend who is not currently dealing with any of the issues represented but who appreciated the meaning and uses behind it just as well. This will now be something I share with many!

Not as nice as pictured.

Not as finished looking as pictured. Definately doesn't look like it cost [$] and I am giving as a present. Had to give a second gift so as not to appear cheap.

      This product far exceeded my expectations. When it came it was even more beautiful than on the website. This was one of the best received gifts I have ever given somebody. The recipient couldn't stop talking about it for days. The fact that part of the proceeds go to charity and the product is made from recycled glass make it an even better product.

          I purchased two plates as gifts. They are very both elegant and functional. My attraction to these gifts was two-fold: recycled material used and benefitting charities I would normally support.

            Gave this to my sister for Christmas. She was enthusiastic about the gift - attractive, practical & benefits a community organisation. She used it to serve dinner on Boxing Day (the day received).

            I live overseas & did not view product.

                Love that they are made by using recycled glass (environmentally friendly), love that they benefit a cause (supporting community causes). Bought these as a gift for people where Alzheimer's has touched their lives. Like that I can give them something beautiful while donating to a good cause.
