The Wild - Message in a bottle line of 100% recycled glass bottles was born in 2021 from Christine Knoll's 4You Design company, through good circular economy practices. Each piece is produced with glass coming exclusively from separate collections and is unique, because during the production phase no bottle is discarded and imperfections are accepted, indeed they are valued because they are a symbol of friendship with the environment.
The mission of Wild - Message in a bottle is to make recycled beautiful and stop time for a cleaner planet.
The designs are applied with inorganic colors in direct hot screen printing. During the manufacturing process, the colored glass powder fuses with the glass of the bottle and makes the print 100% environmentally friendly and scratch-resistant.
PRE-CONSUMPTION OR POST-CONSUMPTION?
When talking about recycled materials it is necessary to distinguish the concepts of "post-consumption" and "pre-consumption" or "post-industrial". While the first concept concerns materials produced and actually used by the consumer, it means waste material that has already reached its end-of-life cycle and is reused to produce new materials. Conversely, the last two concepts mainly concern industrial disposal from large-scale production.
Wild - Message in a bottle bottles are made from 100% post-consumer recycled glass, meaning they come from the glass we all put in our recycling bins.
