BottleHood 'Recycled Bottles To Glassware' Review/Giveaway "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"

My family and I are always trying to do our part in helping take care of the earth. Have you ever thought about what happens to glass when it goes into the trash or how long it takes to break down. Well, we really haven't' thought about glass in that aspect. I came across an amazing site called 'BottleHood' that takes glass and remolds it into new items like drink ware, vases, jewelry, and more.


About the company:**********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. Its simple, BottleHood is good for our neighborhoods!**********

BottleHood offers a variety of items; Boards & Trays, Bowls & Jars, Candles & Accessories, Juice Glasses, Tumblers, Jewelry, Lighting, Shot Glasses, and Vases. All of which have been made from glass that would otherwise been put into a landfill. Glass takes more than 4000 years to decompose. BottleHood glassware is made bottles reclaimed from local restaurants, bars, and restaurants, much of which was on its way to a local landfill. They then re-purpose these bottles using local craftspeople, turning them into great looking glassware which they then sell at farmers’ markets, and local retailers. In the process they are creating local jobs, stimulating neighborhood economies and keep a lot of glass out of landfills.

During our review my hubby was sent two IBC Soda Clear Glass Juice Glasses. Where they aren't super tall they are perfectly sized for drinking orange juice in the morning or even for the kids to drink out of. They have a vintage style look to them, which I love. They have a lightweight feel to them, yet do not feel cheap or weak. These were great for hubby and Conner to set down and half a root-beer together. Anything daddy does Conner wants to do as well, so having a set is prefect. I was really surprised at the selection of products they offer, and the prices they offer are great as well. These would make great gifts for any man and especially if he have a man cave these items would be even better.
