Glass Wine Bottles Recycled

Recycle Wine Bottles

Countries such as the United Kingdom have an enormous surplus of green glass left over from the large quantities of imported wines as their country produces very little wine.

It is estimated that at least 1.4 million tons of this green glass is sent to landfills each year. Waste statistics such as from the United Kingdom has lead to some wine manufactures changing the ways of how they package their product in order to reduce the amount of trash in landfills.

Not only are countries and big businesses changing ways to reduce trash but people all over the world are trying to find alternative ways to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle. Of course we all know that one of these alternatives is recycling.

Recycling does not always mean simply just throwing your used items into a recycling bin and then watching it being hauled off to the recycling bin. Recycling your used items such as glass bottles left over from wine can be used to create many household items that may be used around your own home and in some cases may be sold or gifted for others to use in their homes.

Glass Bottles left over from wine can be used to create items such as lighted lamps, vases, candle holders, and mini wine bottle gifts.   These are items that will last for a very long time and at the same time reduce waste. Get creative!
