Sustainability never tasted so good

Recycling is good, reuse is better. You don’t recycle your water glass after using it one time. Your beverage bottles are made of the same stuff, so why break and melt the glass only to form it again? We see a simpler, more sustainable solution – reuse the bottle instead. By choosing BottleDrop Refillable bottles, you reduce 90% of the carbon emissions compared to single-use containers. Put another way, one six-pack of Refillable bottles offsets the emissions equivalent of nine miles of driving a car.

By choosing Refillable bottles, you help keep our air clean, our beaches, parks and roadsides litter-free, promote a circular economy, and set a model for future generations. It’s a bottle with a message.

BottleDrop Refillable Frequently Asked Questions

BottleDrop Refillable bottles are special glass bottles that can be washed and refilled up to 25 times, making them the most sustainable package for craft beverages. They are made in Oregon from recycled glass and are exclusive to the State of Oregon. We have partnered with a number of breweries across the state with these bottles, and they are specially marked to say BottleDrop Refillable on them so that they can’t be missed. Once they are washed and thoroughly inspected, we then re-distribute them to participating breweries.

More craft beverage makers are using BottleDrop Refillables all the time.
