Perfect height, these glasses are beautifully made.
The story of Bottles&Wood begins in the San Diego "hoods" of North Park, Little Italy and Hillcrest in the fall of 2009. During a time when jobs were tough to get, and the Mira Mar landfill was projected to reach capacity, we founded "BottleHood". We thought it was time to do what the folks in Sacramento and Washington couldn’t, create local jobs, keep reusable materials out of the landfill and raise the visibility of a process known as “upcycling.” BottleHood took beer, wine, liquor, and soda bottles and repurposed them into glassware, serving ware, lights, and jewelry.
In the years that followed BottleHood became a successful business creating dozens of local jobs and raising the visibility and awareness of upcycling and the process of building a sustainable business. While the Company shipped tens of thousands of glasses across the globe its founders felt there was more material than just bottles that could be upcycled.
Accordingly, in the spring of 2014 a partnership was formed with long-time San Diego philanthropist and entrepreneur Zelda Waxenberg. Zelda’s passion for education and charity led her to embrace the concept of local job creation, environmental education and sustainability and Bottles&Wood was formed. The intent was to use the process of upcycling as a tool for the education and inspiration of kids and millennials on the wisdom of upcycling. Bottles & Wood repurposes glass, wood, and other locally sourced waste streams into products for the gift and hospitality industries.
To that end, the team built a unique new manufacturing facility and showcase venue in the Clairemont Mesa neighborhood of San Diego. Fully equipped to work with glass, wood and metal, the shop is capable of hot and cold glass work and has laser capabilities to take the art of upcycling to a new level of branding and personalization.
