Green Your Drink -- Glassware
Drinks made with organic, local, and seasonal ingredients can get even greener if served in recycled glassware. Sure, nixing single-use plastic cups is a step in the enviro direction, but why stop there when eco-minded designers now give you such chic alternatives? The Wisconsin-based Green Glass company offers simple, colorful wine glasses, goblets, and tumblers made of reclaimed and recycled wine and beer bottles, and Uncommon Goods sells beer glasses handmade in Colombia from recycled car windshields. Of course, you needn't get fancy to go green. Mix-and-match glassware from second-hand stores still does the job for hipsters and savers alike.
