Today I am chatting about a really FuN product called Wine Punts.

Recycled wine bottle glasses, also known as a Wine Punt, is simply a wine bottle converted into a glass.

The “punt” of a bottle is the indentation at the base of the bottle. In the old days, when wine bottles were each made by hand, its very likely that the punt was a result of the glass making process – but of course experienced glass makers would have been able to “fix” this before the bottle was done, and flattened the punt. Why didn’t they? There are a variety of theories about why finished bottles had punts. Its important to note that nobody knows for sure 🙂

They come in five great colors ~ Aqua, Clear, Amber, Olive, Green ~ and I am enjoying my drinks so much better these days. We have way to many plastic cups from ball games and restaurants in our cupboard. I want to convert my cabinet to glass and these glasses were a great start. I am going to add more in all sizes and colors!

They come in a juice glass size at 12oz and bit bigger at 16oz. I wish they had one more size up, but honestly who am I to complain. These are stylish looking, made tough so they won’t chip and crack easily, and when I heard they were made from recycled glass I was sold!

What makes our drinks even more FuN are the Glass Dharma Drinking Straws! We’ve talked about the importance of reusable straws on the blog before, but let me remind you…

How many times will you use a straw the rest of your life? Did you know McDonalds serves an average of 52 million meals per day! How many plastic straws do you think get used?

Plus, your drink tastes better! Need to get your 8 glasses of water in a day? Try using a glass straw. It makes you want to drink more! Really!

Comes in 6 colors ~ one for each member of the family ~ and 4 sizes. They won’t roll off the table either!

Lifetime Guarantee against breakage. If they ever break, then they will replace for free.  Hand-made in the U.S.A.

Aren’t they great?


Now we take our straws everywhere. They travel in my bag with their own little case (I can hook you up with an Etsy seller to make you a case) and I feel so proud of my family and how we are using less waste and being healthy at the same time.


I like Stainless Steel Straws a little better for the kids, though they do use both.
They are cheaper, don’t break, and seem to be the perfect size for all cups.

 Whatever you need to make your family more green I bet can help!

Have FuN looking around! 🙂
