Join Us On Our 10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission

Our 10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission

An average person throws away over 1600 pounds of trash per person, per year. Americans as a whole generate enough waste each year to circle the earth 24 times. 75% of all that trash is easily recyclable, but only 30% of it actually gets recycled. One rescued wine bottle saves enough energy to light a 100-watt light bulb for four hours, power a computer for 30 minutes, or a television for 20 minutes.

The statistics shown on the slides above are both sobering and compelling, but with as busy as people are in many cases, just knowing this isn’t enough. So we started the 10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission as a vehicle and a definitive goal to confront the problem where it makes the most sense: in our normal, everyday lives. Refresh Glass has set this important and attainable objective to help solve the problem of overwhelming physical waste, by creating and providing durable, unique and beautiful objects for your daily use.


What might seem to you like a simple gift for a friend or a new set of beautiful glasses for your kitchen is also a truly meaningful and impactful step forward for us and our efforts to rescue 10 million bottles. If you enjoy the things we make, tell your friends about our mission, share your experience on social media and most importantly use our products to make your life better. You’re the most important part of our story and the most powerful way for us to share it.

Thank you for helping us on our journey to fulfill our 10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission!

Our Process


We create products with purpose...

Memorable objects that effortlessly combine aesthetic and function, while solving real world problems by diverting huge amounts of waste thousands of pounds of glass from the landfills every week.


Each bottle has a story.

A unique history of where it came from, what it held, why it was consumed and finally how it got to you in this beautiful new form. We focus a tremendous amount of attention on our craftsmanship preparing each piece for years of everyday use and enjoyment.


Refresh Glass is built around creating beautiful, useful objects that are both highly functional and foster a genuine connection with our customers and our community.

We rely on our community to collect the bottles as much as we do to sell the products we make out of them, and we give back as much as we can to support our community that so clearly supports us.
