I love, Love, LOVE my new juice glasses from Bottlehood, http://www.bottlehood.com/.
Looks like root beer glass bottles right? Because they are! Bottlehood is all about recycling wine, beer, pop and liquor bottles to make a new cool reusable product.
This day and age, who doesn't love eco-friendly products!? I personally have a soft spot for re-purposed items like these glasses.
Did you know that discarded glass takes more then 4,000 yrs to decompose? 4,000! That's insane. I didn't know this either until I was introduced to Bottlehood by the owner, Rachel Cohen. Not only can you get super cool glasses, but you have the peace of mind that bottle isn't hanging out in a landfill for the next 4,000 yrs.
I was expecting thin and fragile glasses that were not the nicest feeling on the lips to drink from. I thought for sure these would just sit on my counter as decoration.
I was pleasantly surprised, not only are they hardy glasses, but you would never guess the top was ever cut to make the glass as it is. The edge is nice and smooth and I don't feel like I am holding something that will shatter easily. With 2 boys, that's a good thing!
They actually remind me of the little brown glasses my mom would set out for orange juice every morning. They are a perfect size for a meal time drink.
Honestly, I was a little torn on using them, or having them as decoration because they fit my kitchen decor to a T. But Bottlehood doesn't just make juice glasses from old bottles, they make candle holders and vases, jewlery and even light fixtures.
I decided my IBC Root Beer glasses could go in the cupboard because I can get these for my kitchen instead~
Rachel Cohen wants to share her juice glasses with you too! Awesome, right?!
