Going green in your kitchen doesn't have to be boring. Buying glassware made from recycled glass is a great way to incorporate recycled materials into your kitchen. With so many styles and shapes, you are bound to find exactly what you are looking for.

Glass has been used for centuries to hold everything from perfume to wine. More than 3 million tons of glass were recycled in 2010, much of which was used to create new glass bottles and jars. Reclaimed and recycled products have made a huge impact on housewares — especially in the kitchen. Drinking glasses of all types made from recycled glass are not only beautiful but trendy. Check out some of our favorites — from the everyday glass to the party flute.
