Yes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porcelain

There's something towards the bottom about bone ash being a possible ingredient, but that seems pretty rare and if you want to get that technical you wouldn't be able to use plastic or watch movies shot on film either.

That still doesn't mention if glass is safe? I've tried searching it but can't find anything?

Glass is made out of minerals and rocks, basically. None of it SHOULD involve bits of animals, or animal products.

Hi, thank you! But sometimes in the process of manufacturing they use animal products as a lubricant for example with making metal tools sometimes they use an animal product to make sure it doesn't stick to the machines... So that would imply that there is no animal products in the end result though I don't even want to support the use of animal products even in the manufacturing side of the products... Is there anyway to find out about this?

Well, there is always BPA-free plastic or the option of making your own glass plates. A lot of companies do not publish their manufacturing ethics so this is a tough one. Even the PETA list is sometimes wrong.

Not to mention the metal manufacturing business does more harm to the planet than any possible animal violation we can think of outside of cattle "manufacturing" and chicken plumping a.k.a. manufacturing.

Is there a PETA list? Didn't know that. Oh and thank you for your input much appreciated! So BPA is that animal product, is that what it stands for... I thought it was just a harsh chemical that's not good for you. Thanks for letting me know...! Now I know what plastics to buy and what to not! smiley.gif
