Subject:  Opening bottles on Shabbath
Message:  I read a previous post on this. What if it is your practice (as it is mine for environmental reasons) to reuse bottles for other purposes? I routinely do this with oil, sometimes water, sometimes liquor, occasionally wine bottles. I always open anything unopened before Shabbath. Should I continue doing so?Do I have to have the intention not to reuse a particular bottle to open it on Shabbath?

Reply:  It goes by the norm. Additionally, you aren't really creating anything. You're taking off the cap in order to get the stuff out.
