Conscious Container is a glass bottle reuse business. We launched the business Earth Day 2017 focusing our first phase “Collection Pilot” in the North Tahoe/Truckee region and Reno/Sparks communities.
The program works like this:
1. Local residents save their empty 12oz brown long neck craft beer bottles in boxes
2. Next, drop-off your craft beer bottles in boxes at one of our collection locations or events.
3. We sell the craft beer bottles to a craft brewer who cleans and refills the bottles with craft beer!!! Perfect...
We call this ‘Purpose Driven Reuse’.
Our goal is to create an infrastructure to collect and preserve bottles for reuse and eventually we will stand up regional bottle washing facilities. We are partnering closely with our local craft brewing communities, local businesses and public entities to pilot, adjust and grow this essential reuse model.
We invite everyone to contribute your bottles, your ideas and engage in our highest form of recycling: REUSE!!
