Drink and be merry – the bottles you leave behind have a new life ahead of them. The Green Glass Company of Wisconsin takes used and unwanted bottles from wineries and has created a diverse collection of glassware that’s fun and chic. The tops of bottles are twisted off to form goblets while their lower halves are transformed into matching tumblers. No glass is wasted and the process is done with the environment in mind.

The Green Glass Company offers 14 unique collections of various colors along with a selection of vases and votive holders. Corporate logos and custom designs can also be sandblasted onto the glasses for your next special event — with absolutely no harmful by-products. Want to unload your used bottles? The Green Glass Company purchases large quantities of recycled, ‘condemned’ and rejected bottles ready to be made into elegant vases and flutes. A toast to being green!

    Could you make a profit selling glassware as you manufacture for only a dollar?
