It may be too late to order a gift for Christmas delivery, but you can always buy yourself a post holiday gift!
We were sent a gift card from VivaTerra to pick out an item we wanted to try. We chose the clear recycled glass wine decanter, as it is on sale!
When glass is recycled, it is broken into small pieces called cullet. The broken pieces are crushed, sorted, cleaned, and mixed with other raw materials in the glass-making process. When glass is made from scratch, high temperatures are needed to melt all the ingredients. Since cullet melts at a lower temperature, the more of it you add to the process, the less energy required to melt it.
Recycling glass is not only energy-efficient; it benefits the environment in other ways. Glass produced from recycled glass instead of raw materials reduces related air pollution by 20% and related water pollution by 50%. And, recycling glass keeps used bottles and jars out of landfills, thereby decreasing the need for them.
I love the look of recycled glass, and this decanter is lovely. It is made in Mexico and 100% recycled. It has a beautiful shape, and I can’t wait to use it with friends.
VivaTerra is having their Year End Clearance too!
