To do a little bit more for the environment and to ensure no part of the More Wine packaging need go to landfill please do send us back your plastic inner.
By not importing our still wines in heavy glass bottles we save up to 80% on the carbon footprint of this movement of wine, compared to the same journey in regular glass. Please see stats from Alko, the Finnish state wine monopoly and full article here.
The carbon footprints of different types of wine packaging per litre of beverage:
- Boxed wine 70 g CO2e/l
- Cardboard carton 85 g CO2e/l
- Wine pouch 96 g CO2e/l
- Aluminium can 190 g CO2e/l
- PET plastic bottle 245 g CO2e/l
- Lightweight glass bottle (less than 420 grams) 525 g CO2e/l
- Traditional glass bottle (about 540 grams) 675 g CO2e/l
