Dishing Out Eco-Friendly Tableware

I’ve discovered the most beautiful tableware made from recycled glass and can’t wait until I am in need of new dishes!

Riverside Design Group, of Pittsburgh, PA creates a variety of glass dinnerware and tabletop accessories from post-industrial/pre-consumer recycled glass. The lovely SeaGlass Collection of platters, plates, and bowls (pictured here) are food-, dishwasher-, and microwave-safe and are available in 14 different colors. The Elements Collection includes handcrafted glass plates, bowls, and boats in soothing shades of coal, ice, blue, and green.

Salt & pepper sets, sugar & creamer sets, flatware, serving bowls & platters, and even a two-tiered stand are offered in the recycled Stainless Steel Collection. Ancient cultures are the inspiration for the appealing Origins Collection. The Botanicals Collection brings nature into your dining room. This company also makes “Plates With Purpose”—donating 15% of proceeds to support non-profit organizations. You can find this innovative dinnerware series through various retail and internet shops.

A great compliment to the aformentioned dinnerware is the recycled glass glassware collection by Rosanna (pictured here). These drinking glasses and water pitchers are handmade and decorated by Mexican artisans.

For made-in-the-USA recycled glassware, look to Wisconsin-based Green Glass Company. They use reclaimed wine and beer bottles to create goblets and tumblers in a variety of striking colors.

It’s even possible to find recycled glassware at big box retailers like Target. They sell wine glasses, serving bowls, tumblers, beverage dispensers, bowls, pitchers, and margarita glasses in a transparent green shade. Crate & Barrel offers hand-blown and hand-shaped recycled glassware both online and in its stores.
