Glass bottles are beautiful, durable, and last a long time, so it’s pretty insane that they’re tossed out in droves – and even if they make it to the recycling bin, it takes a lot of energy to turn them into brand new vessels. That’s why the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter is such a clever idea – it allows you to upcycle used glass bottles into chic, useful products that last a whole lot longer than a single serving beverage.
Using the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter is a snap – simply set a bottle inside, lock it down, and give it a twist it to score the surface. Once you hear a click, use hot and cold water and Kinkajou’s separation rings to pop off the bottles top. All that’s left to do is sand the surface of the rim and your glass bottle creation is complete. Depending on the bottles you have on hand, you can use the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter to create cups, vases, margarita glasses, hydroponic planters and more.
