Did you say up-cycling?

Check out these awesome tumbler glasses made out of up-cycled wine glasses. These glasses are not only great looking, but they are great for the environment as well. Instead of tossing used wine bottles into the trash, some companies are taking them and up cycling.

Up cycling “is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.” (thank you Wikipedia). Basically, you take something old and useless and make it new and awesome.

Each glass is made out of an old wine bottle. They are cut and re-flamed so that there are no sharp edges. This means that every glass is unique in its own way. This set here is a set of 16oz and 8oz. tumblers.  The height and color depends on the wine bottle it self.

We are super excited to share this product. They will make a great gift for any wine lover out there for sure.
