Coopers Hall Winery and Taproom, a winery in Portland, Oregon is the first of its kind to reuse wine bottles. The bottles were initially produced through a refillable beer bottle program, and the winery decided to use them for wine in order to reduce waste.

Each wine bottle can be reused around 25 times, a better alternative than crushing and being recycled like glass bottles. They are sold at 12 USD a piece.

Adam Rack, an assistant winemaker at the winery, said: "Every single bottle we use for each time one of these is reused is about a 90 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions over a single-use bottle. So it is a large reduction.”
