Respect the planet,
Make a difference today, not next week or next lifetime.
It is your planet and your future.
✓ Use fewer things and use them longer.
✓ When done using, pass them on or put them back into the cycle.
✓ Ask your friends to do the same.
✓ Your impact will grow more significant every day.
#StopBlah is a hashtag for all things that make a difference for the planet and against everything and everyone (yes Mr. Politician and Mrs. BigFatBrand) who continues their old shitty ways of denying and pretending that everything will be OK.
Just #StopBlah will you?
Every WesternTrash glass from wine bottle is handcrafted with care and precision. Despite our name, we practice a ZERO WASTE production policy. In order to produce our climate-friendly glass, we take the trash out of the system instead of putting it in.
We upcycle wine bottles sourced from Berlin’s bars and restaurants. Our manufacturing follows the highest standards of professional glass cutting and polishing – it takes a lot of passion to produce this fascinating, hand-made drinking glass from Berlin
They love it

This is glass from a bottle. It is a hand-made and upcycled product, so every unit is unique. Yours will look super cool; however, it may differ from the photo.
The glass from wine bottle you see in the photograph is just an example, the actual color of the glass you receive will almost certainly be different. We classify our glasses as made of green glass. This includes the full range of green shades you may find in bottles – from bright forest greens to dark olive green, and everything in between.
When you order a glass we pick a random green shade, when you order multiple glasses we pick a mix of green shades.
Therefore some level of human subjectivity and luck is involved, this makes the ordering even more rewarding. In this respect WesternTrash glasses are like organic fruits or vegetables – there are no identical pieces.
Western Trash glasses from wine bottles retain the bottle’s original shape and character. Wine bottles traditionally have a concave base, known as the “punt,” but some bottle-makers have stopped doing this. The base of your Western Trash glass can range from a 5 cm concave to completely flat.
The bottom edge of your glass may be slightly angular or rounded. Some bases bulge out a little; others are flush with the rest of the glass.
The underside of your glass may have small linear grooves, meant to stop wine bottles from sliding on the table.
Your glass may show the original markings from the bottle factory, usually a string of numbers and symbols along the base. We don’t try to remove these markings; they add to the quirky character of Western Trash drinkware.
Our glasses from bottles are 100% safe to use.
The WesternTrash Star
All of our creations are stamped with the WesternTrash logo known as an exploding star. It symbolizes the new energy and revolutionary spirit of the new generation.
Our logo is literally cut into the glass surface. We use sandblasting technique, which does not require any paints, solvents, high temperatures, or other environmentally destructive things. We shoot a special kind of sand onto the glass surface with a pressure gun and the sand grains cut through the glass surface. It stays forever and is super duper planet-friendly.
YES, as our glasses are repurposed bottles they do not need any virgin natural materials like sand, water or energy to undergo glass melting and forming processes. This saves a lot of resources and energy and eliminates most of CO2 emission of regular glassware production. WesternTrash handmade glassware might be the most climate-friendly glassware available.
Sustainability is a very vast and complex concept. For example there is a significant misconception about the sustainability of glass bottles – see details here. We want to make it achievable for just anyone so we have made a very basic product that we all use every day – when used daily by many people, can result in a huge outcome in the long term.
Think about it this way:
You can return the item within 30 days, you get a full refund and no questions asked.
