BluMarble upcycles bottles from the Las Vegas Strip and transforms them into home décor and jewelry, making them one of Entrepreneur.com’s 100 Brilliant Companies this June.
Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2015 -- One man's junk is another man's treasure: an aphorism as old as time, but in an increasingly homogenous and commercialized world, it is sometimes difficult to see it proving true. The way in which junk can become valuable again is through the alchemy of art and design, and BluMarble has mastered a socially responsible means of reducing landfill in Las Vegas and creating beauty from waste. Their efforts have been so successful they have just been featured in Entrenepreneur.com's 100 Brilliant Companies, published in their latest June issue.
In the issue, BluMarble and its co-founders are profiled, which describes their work in detail. BluMarble upcycles 15,000 bottles monthly from the Las Vegas Strip and transforms into beautiful works of art in the home decor and drink ware niches. These include glasses made from old Patron bottles, where the neck becomes the base and the base becomes the glass, and jewelry like the Bombay Sapphire set ring.
They have proven that social media can be a powerful ally in selling novel and imaginative products to a broad customer base worldwide. BluMarble On Pinterest and BluMarble on Facebook both have huge followings on highly engaged users, who regularly purchase the items for home and business use. Their best sellers are Grey Goose Rocks Glasses and Patron Margarita Glasses.
A spokesperson for BluMarble explained, "BluMarble are thrilled to be featured in Entrepreneur.com's 100 Brilliant Companies feature, and we believe they found us because of our socially responsible use of used materials to create new and beautiful items that add value to homes and businesses alike. The feature was great exposure for us, as it allowed our founders to really get down to what is at the core of our business, and how that message has caught on with our customer base."
BluMarble was co-founded by Jennifer Jordan and Rachel Cohen. In 2013 they purchased a failing company and changed it course to the company thriving today. They began upcycling products for everyday use, have used hundreds of thousands of pounds in bottles to create beautiful art pieces seen in Caesar's Palace, Rio, Paris, MGM, Mandalay Bay, Bally's, The Venetian, and more, with products available commercially and wholesale.
