ECO-ART Project ~ Recycled Wine Bottles
As most of you know, BHV is very pro-active in protecting our shared environment. Since the first day that we opened (over 2 years ago), we have ONLY used recycled wine bottles for bottling our wines. This has been possible, because YOU have collected and returned these empty wine bottles to us for recycling and repurposing into perfectly usable wine bottles. Since January 1, 2012, you have returned to us nearly 7,000 empty wine bottles! This is an unprecedented accomplishment in our community and in the State of Florida! By using only these recycled wine bottles for bottling our wines, we have been able to reduce our ‘carbon footprint’ by over 60%!
When we’re not using these recycled wine bottles for bottling our wines, we are using them in our art projects (see photos).
