The concept for Peninsula Bottle Boards was born in Bali. While on a family holiday, Oscar and Jack were struck by the volume of discarded wine bottles found in around the rubbish bins of Seminyak. Those bottles were destined for landfill. They thought there had to be a better way to manage glass waste. This sparked the idea for their bottle boards.
