I remember one Christmas my older sister received a kit made for kids, that turned glass bottles into drinking glasses. When I think about what was involved and the potential danger to kids, I can say it would never make toy of the year by today’s standards. I remember you would put the bottle in this device and it would score the bottle and then some how you would crack the scored top off. Next you would smooth and polish the raw edges of the glass with from what I remember required putting it through the flame of a candle. Sounds like fun for kids, right? Either that or a trip to the emergency room.
You can’t argue that it’s a neat idea to recycle bottles into drinking glasses. Well, The Green Glass Company has done all the work for you, their Oversized Glass Tumbler is made from a reclaimed chardonnay bottle. This glass holds 20 ounces of liquid and is the perfect way to ditch one time use plastic cups and plastic bottles.
If you are still looking for gift ideas the Oversized Glass Tumbler is a perfect choice, especially for the tree huggers on your list. My four-year old noticed that the recycled carton the tumbler comes in makes a great sounding drum, perfect for his rendition of The Little Drummer Boy. You can find the Oversized Glass Tumbler from Green Glass on our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!!!
