Weekend Agenda: What to do With Empty Topo Chico Bottles

MiiR x Topo Chico. A match made in our upcycling dreams. 

We've always admired Topo Chico for their upcycled products and commitments to reuse before recycle. So, when we connected with them about designing a limited run of custom products together, we knew it had to incorporate reusability in some way. After identifying a batch of misprinted Tumblers sitting in the back of our warehouse, we worked with their team to come up with a design that would cover the old prints and give these Tumblers a new life. 

But we didn't stop there! We wanted to give you a chance to get involved in the upcycling movement with step-by-step instructions on how to turn your Topo Chico glass bottles into a succulent holder. ⁠


 

How to Make a Topo Chico Succulent Holder

 

Have you ever looked at your empty glass bottles and wished you had a functional reason to keep it around? Look no further, plant tips are here! (We’re looking at all of you newfound at-home plant parents) We partnered with Topo Chico to bring you this DIY at home project of turning your Topo Chico mineral water bottles into nifty little succulent holders. We can't wait to see all of your awesome creations!  

 

Step 1: Drink Your Topo ChicoMiiR Topo Chico mineral water

Drink enough Topo Chico to have a collection of empty bottles ;)

 

Step 2: Etch Your Glass topo chico etching

Etch your beautiful glass bottles with a fine line around the circumference of the bottle. Keep the pressure and speed at which you rotate the glass even. You should be able to hear a slight 'crunch' sound as you're rotating the bottle, indicating that the glass is being etched. Don't have a glass etcher? No problem, we picked ours up here.

 

Step 3: Boil Water & Create Ice Bathtopo chico ice bath

Boil a large container of water until feverishly rolling, make sure your container is large enough to fully submerse your bottle. Then, create an ice bath. Again, make sure you can fully submerse your Topo Chico bottle.

 

Step 4: Alternate Between Hot & Cold BathTopo chico bottle dip

Place your etched sparkling mineral water bottle into the hot bath for 10-15 seconds, then immediately place the bottle into the cold bath for 10-15 seconds. Alternate hot and cold baths until step 5.

 

Step 5: Glass Separationseparating glass

After one to two alternating hot and cold water baths, your bottle will separate at the etch mark and you will be left with a cut glass bottle!

 

Step 6: Sand Your Glasssanding glass

Sand the rim of your glass to prevent any sharp edges.

 

Step 7: Fill With a SucculentTransplanting a succulent

Now that your container is all ready, fill the bottom with your favorite sandy, succulent-friendly potting soil. If your succulent is prone to root rot, add an inch of small pebbles or river rocks at the bottom of the bottle for extra drainage. Next add your new succulent, pack it in with soil, and pour in a bit of water. Sit back and enjoy your new creation!

What is Topo Chico?

Topo Chico is a brand of Mexican mineral water that promotes sustainability, quality, and taste. In 2017, the beverage giant, Coca-Cola Company, purchased this fast-growing brand with a goal to make it a leader in the sparkling water category across the USA. 

After taking off in Latin America, the world-renowned beverage company has become a roaring success in the USA and is now expanding into Canada.

 

Does Topo Chico Hydrate You?

Many people who stumble upon this popular Mexican mineral water brand end up wonder: is Topo Chico hydrating? Mineral water naturally contains a small amount of electrolytes and other minerals, making it a good source of hydration. Thanks to the carbonation, many drinkers use this refreshing beverage as a way to cut back on soft drinks.

 

What is Ranch Water?

Ranch water is a refreshing cocktail made with a blend of Topo chico, tequila, and lime juice served over ice. This beverage has a loyal base of fans in Texas.
