For those of you who may not be familiar with our candles, we pour them into wine bottles that we collect from local restaurants. As we started collecting in May of this year, we soon realized that not all wine bottles are created equally. Either the punt ( dimple in the bottom ) was too big, the glass was too thin, or shape wasn't quite what we were looking for.
Needless to say, we handle a lot of glass on a weekly basis. Every bottle we cut produces a neck/bell that we "currently" don't use. These necks, along with those bottles that didn't meet our criteria or standards, were doomed to be discarded.
We realized from the beginning the responsibility we had as a company and a member of our community to make sure the unused glass was recycled as opposed to simply being discarded into a landfill.
We have maintained that commitment from the start and we are glad to announce that to date we have recycled 1014 wine bottles.
That's a little over 101 bottles a week. I know it doesn't seem like much now, but imagine the impact we could make if we maintain this pace. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
You can help support our recycling efforts by......wait for it.....drinking more wine! Please visit the restaurants who support us and have a glass of wine. You can go to Red Bone Alley at the Florence Mall or go by Victors or Fiasco located on Evans Street in downtown Florence, and enjoy great atmosphere, incredible food, excellent service and of course your favorite bottle of vino.
