There is no end to the good vibes that you get with this pretty “heart” platter. Each plate is cut from glass that would otherwise go to waste and end up in the land-fill which is a tragedy since it is perfectly good glass!! It is categorized as pre-consumer/ post-industrial. The design on the plates is hand screened. With each purchase, $2 is donated to benefit Pittsburgh Habitat for Humanity, which brings community volunteers together to build affordable housing for low-income families….and a little certificate describing the donation is included with the plate. It is dishwasher and microwave safe.
