As you may have heard, we're currently in the midst of Recycle Glass Month
(FYI, it's also National Chicken Month
and National Blueberry Popsicle Month and today is National Date Nut Bread Day
). So there's that. If you don't already recycle your glass empties, make September the month that you start to divert your bottles, jars, and what have you from landfills by properly recycling them or reusing them around the house. This especially applies to you, Labor Day party-throwers with 30-plus Corona empty bottles on your hands.
To mark this most joyous occasion, here's a look at 10 exceptional products made from recycled glass for around the house (not included is the big stuff like recycled glass insulation
). Sure, Recycle Glass Month is more about doing the deed itself than buying recycled-content homegoods, but if you're in need of a green wedding or housewarming gift or just fancy a new set of wine glasses, look no further.
