While we absolutely love the style of Genusee glasses, that’s only part of what made this brand stand out. What really caught our attention is how and why they make their glasses. Genusee uses the abundance of plastic waste caused by the Flint, Michigan, water crisis to create their products. To further support its community, the brand manufactures glasses in the city, creating jobs for the workers who have been displaced as the auto industry has moved out of Michigan. That’s what we call both sustainable and ethical creating.
