I love the Bright Spots glasses! They are so fun - whether you're drinking juice in the morning or filling it up with a frozen margarita during dinner. It adds a lot of fun to plain, everyday dishware. Also, it's great that it's made from recycled glass. Cute and eco-friendly! Thanks!

Wow, this is interesting! I always wondered what happens to all the glass I recycle each year. I love the glasses made from recycled wine bottles the best. They would make perfect orange juice glasses in my house or be just right for serving drinks at parties. It’s fortunate these glass gems didn’t end up in a landfill!
