When tested with an XRF instrument this clear glass mug (with green tint, probably recycled glass) had the following readings:
- Lead (Pb): 431 ppm
- Mercury (Hg): Negative/Non-Detect (ND)
- Cadmium (Cd): Negative/Non-Detect (ND)
Glassware with a tint often has at least some level of Lead. Recycled glassware also often has at least some level of Lead.

My favorite Lead-free/Lead-safe mug (that I use every day in my home) is made by ForLife. All of the ForLife mugs that I have tested to date have been Lead-free (and they are also advertised as Lead-free). You can see an example of one those here on Amazon*:
I also use restaurant quality clear glass mugs in my home (which are also Lead-free.) [Similar to these on Amazon.]
Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Hi Tamara, is it that the glass without tint (green or any color like yellow, blue, etc.)Lead free? Thanks
Generally a good rule of thumb when shopping for new items – not always true of vintage items though.
