More than 11-million tons of glass containers were thrown away in the US in 2010. A California-based company was created in an effort to make good use of all that glass going to waste. BottleHood re-purposes old wine, beer, soda and liquor bottles into jewelry, glass serving ware, vases and other glass products. The company is now partnering with Caesars Entertainment properties in town to sell their products in retail shops, and they recently opened a manufacturing facility in Las Vegas.
