Rolf Glass Announces Glacier Glass
As seen in The New York Times May 22, 2013, "To Fill: Bottoms Up to Find the Difference" by Florence Fabricant
Glacier Glass was inspired by the opportunity to give used bottles a chance of a second life. Glacier Glass combines manufacturing engineering, innovative product design, and environmental awareness. Our goal was to create a fun consumer product that makes a difference. Rolf Glass designer, Paula Sansone-Johnson combined her glass cutting skills with her manufacturing experience by using state of the art diamond-wheel engraving technology to create unique designs that completely alter the look and feel of the former wine bottles. The result is a sexy re-purposed 12oz tumbler, 16oz cooler, and 19oz carafe a win for everyone!
This organic design reminds one of majestic glaciers, as they feel substantial in your hand. Re-purposing glassware is slightly more costly, but Rolf Glass believes that the additional time, energy, and cost all cumulate in a superior “green” product. Rolf Glass (Glassautomatic Inc.) is donating 2% of all Glacier Glass sales to a local Pittsburgh non-profit oganization, GTECH Growth Through Energy + Community Health (GTECH) to help spread environmental awareness, one salvaged bottle at a time.
The Rolf Glass Glacier Glass collection can be purchased online direct thru retailers. To locate a retailer nearest to you please go to rolfglass.com/retailers and enter your zip code to find the closest location.
