THE KINDER WAY TO DRINK WINE
The majority of wine is drunk within a year of bottling. We don’t think that justifies all of the bottles, corks, labels, capsules and closures. A 20 litre keg of wine is the equivalent of 26.6 bottles and wine, and reduces packaging waste by 94%. We took over 375 tonnes of glass alone out of the recycling chain in 2018, and we’re just getting started.
REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We can fit twice as much wine on a truck when it’s packaged in keg instead of in bottle. That means half as many trucks on the road, and a reduced carbon footprint for our customers by an average of 20%. And in 2019 we’re doing more.
This year we’re piloting a closed-loop recycling system, which will see our used kegs collected, crushed and sent back to the manufacturer to be turned into new ones, bringing our wine on tap systems closer to zero waste.
