Green Glass Co.

I was really impressed by this company at Green Festival DC. They take used wine bottle, cut them in half, and then turn the bottom half into a glass (polishing the sharp edges), and turn the top half into a wine glass (heating the neck and stretching into a stem).
I can't imagine many things more satisfying then drinking from an attractive glass that is 100% re-used material. We haven't order glasses yet as they are currently a bit spendy at ~$30 for four glasses (hopefully they will become more reasonable as sales pick up).
Check out their products at the Green Glass Co. website. With the holiday season upon us, this would make a great gift for your sustainability oriented friends!
