Finding products not made in China doesn’t always mean having to trek halfway across town to a little-known speciality shop. Take for example this recent find at proudly Canadian retail chain Urban Barn — Authentic Glassware. Authentic combines my two favourite things: Spanish wine & recycled glass. Yes, that’s right, this vintage-inspired collection is made of recycled Spanish wine bottles. No longer do I need to feel guilty for polishing off the last drop of Rioja — it’s for a good cause! Salud!
Made in Spain of 100% recycled wine bottles
