Healthier Planet


Innovating towards a more environmentally-sustainable future

We've redesigned wine packaging to have a substantially lower carbon footprint and we use pre-existing PET plastic in a smart way to ensure plastic already in circulation is put back to good use

Few industries are so directly affected by climate change as the wine industry

Round, glass wine bottles are heavy and spatially inefficient, contributing to a grotesque carbon footprint throughout the supply chain.

By innovating in shape and using best-in-class material, our eco wine bottle is 40% spatially smaller and 87% lighter than a round glass bottle of the same volume.

“Wine should come in a glass bottle, right? Actually, wrong, if wine drinkers want to do their bit for the planet's resources and environment. Glass bottles and their transportation are the two biggest contributors to wine's carbon footprint.”

Saving energy throughout the supply chain

Our bottle are produced in a factory with 7,000 solar panels producing 1.65MW, covering the size of approximately two and a half football pitches.

Producing our bottle in rPET requires 90% less energy than required for virgin PET.


Lowering the carbon footprint

At 87% lighter than the average glass bottle, each of our rPET bottles could significantly reduce carbon emissions across the supply chain.

A bottle that fits through an average UK letterbox helps mitigate against the 900,000kg of CO₂ emissions released annually due to missed deliveries.

And, thanks to the space-saving benefits of our bottle, in some instances up to 91% more wine can fit onto a pallet which has a direct environmental impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Putting pre-existing plastic back to good use

Virgin plastics are made by extracting below-ground carbons such as fossil fuels. These natural stocks have taken millions of years to build up and we are using them up at an unsustainable rate. That’s why we use pre-existing plastic in our 100% recycled PET bottles as it means we don’t rely on the need for virgin PET production to make our bottles. This way we help to keep as much of this finite natural resource below ground as possible.

Using post-consumer recycled plastic also creates a value for plastic already in circulation which could otherwise have ended up as litter in our environment or waste in landfill.

“We're impressed with this totally recycled (and recyclable) wine company, pouring a glass with some serious waste-free class”


We believe 100% post-consumer recycled PET is the most environmentally friendly material for now, but we're always looking out for the materials of the future which will make even more environmental sense.


Plastic-smart not plastic-free

While our bottles are used once before being recycled, they are not 'single-use' plastic. We've taken special care to think about the entirety of our products' lifespan to help reduce waste.

“The problem is not plastic itself. The problem is using it irresponsibly. The solution is not to ban plastic, but to ensure that it is used responsibly and recycled properly.”

Recycling messaging

Encouraging responsible consumer behaviour

We ensure there's clear recycling messaging on our bottles and single bottle postal packs so consumers know what our products are made of and how to recycle them. For bottles sold in the UK gifting market, a weblink directs consumers to enter their postcode to check local kerbside recycling.


Recyclability by design

We use plastic labels and screw caps to ensure our product is fully and easily recycled by consumers without the need to separate individual components. PET is also widely recycled by 100% of councils in the UK.

Closing the loop to become circular

Together with our manufacturers RPC M&H Plastics, our advisor Dr. David Greenfield, the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London and other environmental institutions, we're working on our plans to become a fully circular business.
