Eden Project's ultra green wine glasses

Eden_glassesMost recycled flutes are green by nature. These ones, however, are such a dark shade of green they're virtually, um, black. They start off life as the empty wine bottles used in the Eden Project's restaurants and are then sent to a nearby Cornish company - avoiding excess road miles and supporting local business - before being remade into tumblers and wine glasses. Better still, they're cut instead of melted, thus using less energy and sticking less CO2 in the air. Handily, the end result also looks dandy. You can buy a pair for £12 direct from the Eden Project's online shop or by visiting the old quarry in person. Eden has more cool eco-friendly gifts, stationery and home stuff in its Global Goodies range.
