Please check out this little video below that Carissa (from Creative Green Living) and I made, testing recycled tinted glass from Spain, hot of the display shelf at Target!
As we say in the video, recycled glass is often very high in lead. I can’t say from looking at a product if it is going to leach into a beverage or not (as leaded crystal has been documented to do), but at levels like we found in this video below, I think it’s not worth the risk when there are so many lead-free glass options out there!
If you appreciate what I do & would like to support my advocacy work (including the XRF testing I do of consumer goods) please consider clicking through to Amazon from one of my links before shopping (and I will get a percentage of what you spend, at no extra cost to you!) OR click here to make even a small contribution via my GoFundMe, every $5 or $10 (or whatever you can afford) makes a big difference during what is currently a very difficult transition time for me. Thank you!
