SPECIAL MENTION: The standard glass wine bottle was created to meet the shipping needs of the 19th century. London-based Garçon Wines believes it’s invented one that meets the needs of today.

Made entirely from lightweight recycled materials, it’s 87% lighter and 40% smaller than an average glass bottle, reducing emissions by saving on shipping space and weight. —Jared Lindzon
