What should I do with my empty, reusable Straus bottles?

Please rinse the bottles and return them to your local store. You’ll get a $2 deposit refunded when the bottle is returned. The bottles are then returned to the Creamery, washed, sanitized, and reused an average of five times before re-entering the recycling stream. The bottles themselves are made with up to 30% recycled glass. We are very pleased to see a return rate of more than 80% on our bottles.
