I am truly amazed with this shop, and you will be too. Here you will find recycled glassware made into upcycled tumblers, glasses, vases, cheese trays, jewelry, dishes, and more made from old bottles! They explain it best in their shop Bio:
"BottleHood was created out of a passion to help our environment, create local jobs and stimulate our local retail economy. The company was founded by a couple of folks in San Diego who took their concerns for the environment and the local economy and decided to “do” something about it. "
"BottleHood has taken a stand on keeping bottles which have no California Redemption Value (CRV) out of California’s landfills or sent overseas to be recycled. In the process, BottleHood produces a line of uniquely handcrafted tumblers and vases made from bottles whose contents were enjoyed in our neighborhood. We hire local craftspeople, who also share our concerns for the environment and the local economy, to produce our line of glassware."
"BottleHood is just really all about our neighborhood; helping extend the life of discarded glass, creating jobs and stimulating our local economy. "
Even better, BottleHood states that all their glassware (or pendants!) was created from wine, liquor, and water bottles from local San Diego restaurants, bars and hotels.
