The 4Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rioja

Spanish wine glassFinding 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

  • Pictured above: high-ball glass ($7) & small jar ($12) from Urban Barn
  • Availability at Urban Barn: drinking glasses ($7-$8), dinner plates ($9-$16), bowls ($9), storage jars ($12-$19), wine caraf ($12), salt & pepper shakers ($12) and oil & vinegar set ($16).
  • You’ll also find Authentic jars for comparable prices at Ecotique on Roncesvalles Ave.
  • More info on this product line can be found at the Urban Barn blog.

  1. These are very cool, very vintage… I like.

  2. I got these two on sale. I think I’ll go back for more, even though the sale is over. Totally worth it!
