About Us

Conscious Container was founded by Caren McNamara because she was tired of throwing away glass bottles that could be washed and refilled instead of landfilled or recycled.

Traveling around the world Caren witnessed how refillable glass systems delivered an economically viable package and infrastructure while significantly reduced producer packaging costs and CO2 footprint over all single use packaging options.

So Caren asked…

“How do we collectively ‘flip the script’ and build a refillable glass system here in the United States?”

Starting with due diligence across waste, packaging and policy, followed by proof-of-concept pilots and incorporation, to now planning for expansion, Caren and her team are well positioned to launch the first refillable glass infrastructure and bottle washing operation in the United States.
