Embracing the idea of repurposing over recycling, The Green Glass Company fashions high-end goblets and drinking glasses from reclaimed wine, water, and trademark bottles reclaimed from the North American waste stream. Repurposing requires only a fraction of the energy associated with producing conventional recycled glass products and is more environmentally sustainable than traditional recycling.
“While using considerable less energy has been an integral part of our value proposition since our inception in 1992, making this energy renewable was a next logical step”, says Oscar Wientjes, CEO of The Green Glass Company. “By using reclaimed bottles and other reclaimed materials for our unique glass ware using renewable energy, The Green Glass Company not only practices a reclamation and conservation policy but also actively promotes re-purposing as a viable and sustainable way of living.”
