Beer Bottles Into Glasses, Best Recycling Method Ever?
April 9th, 2010
I am not a beer drinker, I have a hard enough time controlling what I say and do sober. Give me a beer and things go off track fast. I will drink the bejeebers out of some Dr. Pepper though, and you can still get those in glass bottles.
If you are a beer drinker or drink soda in bottles made of glass, you probably throw away lots of glass bottles or perhaps you recycle them in those boring plastic bins out front. A dude from Chicago that likes his beer and soda recycles his bottles in a very interesting way. Nick Paul is a glassblower. He takes the empties and turns them into glasses you can keep using.
Apparently, he takes the bottles, heats the glass, and then blows the neck and mouth of the bottle to the size of the bottom making glasses. They are pretty darn cool and I could see these things selling very well if he were to open a store. Oh wait, he does have a store. Plus he gets to drink all the beverages before he makes the glasses.
