Each bottle from Blue Bottle Love is hand sandblasted. The bottles are made to order, so in this sense, your bottle will be infused with your energetic imprint and thoughts. Depending upon when you place your order, the production time could be up to 21 days due to the production flow and short staff situations these days. Please add an extra 3-7 days for shipping times. Sometimes you can receive your order in as little as 5-7 days, it just depends on so many factors in our production shops. Please take these time frames into consideration when ordering. The ideal time to order for the least amount of wait time, is by Sunday night of each week….most orders placed by that time will ship on Friday of the same week, under normal conditions, that is the goal!
Please note, our Sedona team is a lovely group of very talented artists who love Upcycling and sending out all things BLUE into the world for Blue Bottle Love! They also have their own Upcycled Candle and Glass business and have taken on the Blue Bottle Love project, even with all the Vortex Challenges that Sedona presents! The Upcycled cups and 5 LITER bottles always come from here, along with all the other bottle sizes. We also have a team in Boulder, Colorado that has been our main sandblaster since 2009 and we LOVE this team too! They are super diligent and reliable and efficient, but they cannot work on the 5LITERS and they don’t make the Cups! Ideally we would love to consolidate into one location where the weather and energy and shipping lanes etc are easy to navigate and the shipping distance are evenly distributed across the USA…where this would be one big happy Blue Bottle Love Team ready to spread this mission out to the world! If you or anyone you know that has the passion and commitment and ability to team~up with Blue Bottle Love and make this a reality, then please reach out…for the Love of Water! We want to make Blue Bottle Love accessible to all in an efficient and timely manner, with high vibration people making it all happen!
If you have a certain date that you must receive your order by, please make a note on the order page or give a follow up email, or call in, so we may do our best to meet that date.
Shipping costs are as follows for US Orders and most orders ship using US Mail. The 5 Liters and the larger orders ship by Fed Ex ground or UPS Ground, so please provide a physical address for your order. If you order several different kinds of items, the shipping prices for each type of item will be added together. Usually this works out very accurately to match the actual shipping prices we must pay to get the package to you. If your actual shipping costs are substantially lower than what we must pay, then we will happily refund a portion of your shipping costs.
$4.50 flat rate for small accessory items
$12 flat rate for Blue Love home and body care and books
$12 for Upcycled Cups
$15 flat rate for the 500 ml, 750 ml and 1 Liter bottles
$33 flat rate for the 5 Liter size bottles
We are no longer shipping First Class mail for the bottles, except to Canada for one bottle. Shipments around the world via First Class mail are not trackable. So we only ship via Priority Mail, UPS, or Fed Ex International Economy around the world. One way to make the shipping price per bottle go down, is to place a group order with friends and the shipping cost per bottle could go down to as low as $12-$15 for 6 bottles or more. This is a great way to share Blue Bottle Love with your friends and spread the Blue Bottle Love to your community! Please fill out your address information in the cart, to check the shipping rates.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS MAY BE CHARGED IMPORT DUTIES AND/OR TAXES BY THEIR COUNTRY’S CUSTOMS OFFICE! These fees will be charged to you when your package arrives (they are not included in the shipping costs that we charge). These fees are the customer’s responsibility and are paid to your country’s customs office upon receipt of the package. If you are unsure about customs duties and taxes and would like more detailed information, you should contact your local customs office. Also, as of July 1, 2021 any shipment going to an EU country will incur VAT fees, collected by the shipping company. Other countries are requiring Import/Id Numbers as well. We now list the actual price you paid for Customs information in case of loss or damage, so please notify us as to how you would like for the Customs Value to be listed on your shipment, if you do not want the FULL PRICE listed.
Every country is different and every order is different, and we are unable to account for the various differences between each country.
It may be easier to purchase from our EU website, bluebottlelove.eu as the VAT is already included in the price.
IN addition to our EU website, you can find our 2 UK Distributors!
Claudia who has stock of 12-15 designs in the S,M,L bottles! Please reach out to her on IG or FB, or by email.
We also have another
And if you are in Australia, please visit the websites of 2 distributors who ship within the country. Slow Days and Montville Mist have bottles available!
Also, in Australia, specifically Sydney, you may contact Jules Crown at +61 410 677 888 as she brings in a small stock of bottles and can also bring them in with small batches and help save on shipping for all concerned.
Disclaimer: We have discovered that somehow for International Orders, the site might incorrectly present shipping costs lower than the actual costs. We reserve the right to adjust the shipping rates to actual shipping costs in this case in the way of requesting more shipping payment from you, and we will notify you before shipping. It is unfortunate that shipping internationally costs so much, but we are not the ones setting the prices, just paying the bills! IN addition, there are a few countries such as Australia and South Africa that have much higher international shipping rates than other countries. It is difficult to predict all the different prices within those countries as well, so for any shipping cost more than $10, we will contact you in order to collect more shipping money to cover the costs to ship to your remote location. If the extra cost is exorbitant, we will split the extra costs with you to be fair to both of us, or if you prefer to cancel the order, then we will refund your money. Thank you for your kind understanding.
You may or may not receive a shipping notification from Paypal when your order ships. Some people receive a notification from PayPal or our website and others don’t, or else it goes to the junk mail possibly. Also, if you input your email address incorrectly then you will NOT receive notifications from our website. The ideal time each week to order for the quickest turn around from the time you order to the time you receive your order would be to order by Sunday Night of any week.
Please note, all packaging materials you find in your shipment are from recycled and reused sources. If you order just one bottle, it will arrive in one perfectly fitted box, wrapped in fluted cardboard. If you order several bottles, then they will be boxed or wrapped in fluted cardboard and brown paper as the padding. The cups are all wrapped in cardboard from the dividers on our pallets. Reuse and Repurpose is the name of the game…and while we would LOVE to offer an elegant packaging for each cup and bottle, it does not make sense to fill this world with more needless but pretty packaging! In some cases, we may need to fill the void with ReUsed packing peanuts to keep the weight down and the bottles well padded, especially for International orders. We never buy these awful things, and we will always try to use the biodegradable packing peanuts. If you do see any in your package, just know that we definitely did not buy them, only recycling from packages we receive or from donations. You may continue the cycle of reusing them, by storing them for future use or taking them to a UPS or pack n ship store near you or give to another business or friend that could use them for packing material!
We have recently upgraded the packaging of the online orders, but we are still in process of perfecting how they are packaged. Any feedback is welcome so we can better serve you and the environment at the same time!
If you do receive a damaged shipment, please let us know immediately and send photos of the outside and inside of your package. We will be sure to send you replacements as soon as possible. Please email a note and photos to [email protected] to report any damage or missing items.
For International shipments, please keep the packing material and broken pieces and present the shipment to your local post office to make record of the shipment so we may make a claim. Please send photos of the inside and outside of your package. If you cannot provide the damage to your local post office, we can only refund the cost of the broken bottle. If we are able to make a proper claim, then we will be sure to replace your order right away!
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: We maintain the right to refuse service to any individuals that are not in alignment with the values of kindness and consideration of the ongoing situation in the world, which is causing short staffing and supply chain issues that might cause your order to be delayed. We do everything we can to get the packages out in a timely manner, but there are certain situations beyond our control. We have found most people to realize this, and we are grateful for everyones’ patience in these uncertain times. If there is any negative energy directed towards our company or the bottles, then this results is negative energy in the world, and we do not want to be a part of adding to that. Thank you for being authentically kind and seeing things from a larger perspective, in case you experience any issues with your order. Kindness goes a LONG WAY in creating a better world.
