BottleHood was founded in 2009 in a San Diego barn, which seems like a fitting place for a company dedicated to eco-friendly, sustainable products. It was established with three goals in mind: to create jobs, stimulate the local retail economy, and help the environment. Mission accomplished, BottleHood!
Like its name suggests, BottleHood collects bottles from local bars, restaurants, and events, and creates lovely glassware, vases, light fixtures, and jewelry. The products are handcrafted using the cold work method, which produces a much lower carbon footprint. (The hot working process emits toxins into the air.)
