BottleDrop has partnered with craft beverage makers to bring this sustainable package back to the market. The bottles are specially marked with BottleDrop Refillable on them. BottleDrop Refillables have the same deposit and return value as other beverage containers. However, instead of being crushed and recycled, Refillable Bottles are washed, inspected, and redistributed, reducing carbon emissions by up to 90%. Learn more about our Refillables Program.
More craft beverage makers are using BottleDrop Refillables all the time.
