The fairly traded, handblown recycled glass tumbler is made in Bolivia from 100% recycled glass. These planet friendly glasses are reassuringly heavy and dishwasher safe so are just as suited to everyday use as entertaining guests.
There are many different types of wine glasses. Traditionally, crystal glasses are made with lead, but now you can buy lead-free crystal glasses made using a combination of other minerals. These materials can be spun into thin yet durable glasses. But they can't go in the dishwasher, and are generally very expensive and certainly don't have the same eco-credentials as our recycled glass tumblers.
Our sustainable wine glasses come in two sizes. White wine glasses hold 200ml while the red wine glasses hold a generous 250ml. Each one is hand blown and so completely unique, the slightly green colour of the glasses makes for lovely table decoration and really compliments a rustic, natural themed décor or casual outdoor dining experience.
If you prefer stemless wine glasses the tumblers have the perfect balloon shape to collect your wine aromas and are large enough to accommodate a nice glass of pinot noir, chilled water or a refreshing gin and tonic. They hold 350ml making them excellent everyday glasses. Stemless glasses require less height to store, are contemporary in design and versatile in their usage. Air bubbles and small "imperfections" add individual charm to each one-of-a-kind piece, plus we think this set of four is great value for money.
So next time you pour yourself a glass of wine choose a glass that’s responsible, sustainable and uniquely beautiful. Now you just need to find yourself a well-stocked wine cellar and get wine tasting.
