April is "Earth Month"

We want to invite you to join us in taking steps toward sustainability this month. Reuse your Fustini's bottle to try a new flavor or refill a favorite oil or vinegar.  By doing so, you lower the amount of glass that needs to be produced as well as reduce the energy used in recycling your bottle.  And, we will give you $1 off your order for each bottle you refill, anytime!

Here's how to get your empty bottle ready for a refill:

CLEAN - empty and rinse your Fustini's bottle
SANITIZE - run them through the dishwasher
DRY - all moisture needs to be evaporated
REFILL - visit any Fustini's location to refill your bottle.  Because we are putting a fresh product into your bottles, it is imperative they are clean, sanitized and dry to keep the quality of your oil or vinegar

(Fustini's reserves the right to reject any bottles that do not meet the guidelines for safety and cleanliness.)
