From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
At Recycled Glassware Company we cut discarded beverage bottles into drinking glasses, vases, self-watering planters pendant lighting, and various other products. We are an alternative to glassware imported from China and shipped from half way around the world at a huge cost to our environment. Waste glass is limitless and we need to find smart alternatives to the waste problem we have in this world. We at Recycled Glassware Company are a small example of this.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always been inspired by sustainability. Through our product and the services we are offering we want to share the opportunity with the general public to create a sustainable product and have some fun with this process.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
When a person sees a drinking glass made from a discarded wine bottle for the first time they have an ah-ha moment. It really is quite a logical product. Just takes a little practice, direction, and creativity. They make great gifts.
