Recycled Wine/Beer Bottles for Household Use and Decoration

In GREEN we strive to find ways to reduce our waste profile and recycle everything we possibly can. With this thought in mind, we have come up with an endeavor from which you, the reader, can benefit. We will soon begin selling recycled glass containers (wine and beer bottles, sauce jars, etc.) that have been re-purposed by cutting and fire polishing for new and practical household uses. The following items are currently offered:

  • Tall and short glasses
  • Planters
  • Vases
  • Funnels.

As a non-profit organization GREEN uses all proceeds towards furthering the message of green chemistry, whether it’s through outreach activities, fliers, or guest speakers.

Below are the items we will soon offer and the prices for each. Quantity of items varies at any given time. If interested or have questions, please email fundraising@greeningresearch.com to inquire about what you’d like and the quantity. Choice of color is not currently provided, though olive and green wine glasses are primarily what we have in stock. Note that these products are and cut and fire polished, and though we strive to make each one perfect, results may vary.
