National Small Business Revolution Documentary Features Phoenix’s Refresh Glass
Refresh Glass, which creates beautiful products from recycled wine bottles, is garnering national attention from Deluxe Corp. and its Small Business Revolution documentary project. The Small Business Revolution, which also features “Shark Tank” star Robert Herjavec, is a yearlong campaign that celebrates the vibrancy, variety and community impact of small businesses around the country.
Owner Ray DelMuro designed a machine that cuts wine bottles more efficiently and handles more shapes and sizes. Refresh Glass now creates products from vases to candle holders, and its items are carried in major restaurant chains such as Wolfgang Puck and Four Seasons.
Refresh Glass has rescued more than 600,000 bottles as DelMuro is also chair of the local “Conscious Capitalism” group that gives back to the community.
