Bordeaux Bottle Reuse With Saffi Saana

We are proud to partner with Saffi Saana, a sustainability driven importer of specialty cooking oils and vinegars, to keep your bordeaux-style wine bottles out of the waste stream!

Green, bordeaux-style wine bottles can be dropped off at any Green Life Trading Co. location to be used for Saffi Saana’s Zero Waste line of oils and vinegars.


Bottles must be clean and dry, labels do not have to be removed to donate.

Bonus: remove the label and any sticky residue to receive a $1/per bottle coupon to Green Life Trading Co.

How To Remove Labels Three Ways

1. Put the bottle in a pot of boiling water. Fill the bottle with water so it stays fully submerged

2. Steam the wine bottle label with a clothes steamer until wet and loosened.

3. Soak the bottle in the bathtub overnight. Fill the bottle with water so it stays fully submerged.
