The urban dictionary defines a Maxxinista as a person who shops at the discount designer department store TJ Maxx, and one who finds unique and original designer items at discount prices.

Well, I am proud to say I'm a Eco-Maxxinista ;)  Recently I was delighted to find more glassware from the same company that made the recycled pitcher I'd found awhile back  When I spied the familiar packaging and pretty green hued tumblers at my local TJMaxx/Homegoods, my inner Eco-Maxxinista grinned from ear to ear, and I had to buy them.  I'm attempting to claim them as" Mom only" glassware, but unfortunately the family seems to like them as much as I do.  They are a pale green glass, a nice hefty weight, and my favorite part is the imprint, "Authentic 100% Recycled Glass."

The only drawback to being an Eco-Maxxinista is that typically TJMaxx/Homegoods only has 1 or 2 items, and sadly this was the case with these beautiful glasses.  At least the 1 package that I found contains 4 tumblers.  Of course I needed to know more about the company, and searched the internet with the few clues I could find on the plain, minimalist, eco-friendly corrugated cardboard packaging  ("made in Spain", "San Miguel," 2 recycled symbols, and "Authentic 100% Recycled Glass.").   I was able to find The Recycled Glassware Company, and found the tumblers too  But you can't beat the Maxxinista prices, so I'll be sure to peek around in the glassware section next time I'm in need of some eco-retail therapy ;)

  1. Yes, I also found these very same glasses and love love love them! I bought a set of tumblers in the brown cardboard packaging and later found 1 or 2 of the shorter tumblers. Now I have an odd set of each and can't find anymore of them anywhere. I have shopped every TJ Maxx I can find!! Any ideas??
