Building our company with the environment in mind!
If you’ve ordered from us before, then you might have noticed the little recycling ideas we include with our packaging. That’s because we like to cut-out waste wherever we can. It’s because we believe little actions can create a lot of impact. And because, despite being a little start-up, we want to make sure our planet is healthy so that our children’s generation can enjoy amazing wine too.
Here’s some more of the things we’re doing to be as sustainable as possible…
Parcelforce, who do our daily deliveries, are part of the Royal Mail Group who are committed to managing environmental issues and conducting its business in an environmentally responsible manner.
Hillebrand, who do our freight transport from producers around the world, are part of the UN Global Compact initiative. Further, Hillebrand support the IMO 2020 regulation with the aim of decreasing air pollution, within the maritime industry, by 70% globally by 2025.
Our boxes are 100% recyclable. The paint used is water-based, with no toxic elements. The inner wine moulds are made from 100% recycled material, contains no additives, are biodegradable and fully compostable. The packaging is DIN EN 13432 : 2000-12, certified with compostable material 2016-01.
We use FSC accredited paper and recyclable inks on our inserts and our tape can be recycled along with your box.
Bottles, corks & caps:
All our wines are delivered in glass bottles which are recyclable. Not all our producers use recycled glass but it’s apart of an on-going discussion to encourage them to use recycled glass.
Corks can be composted if you have home composting. However, corks are not collected as part of your doorstep recycling scheme.
Screw caps can be recycled, however we advise removing caps from bottles because it makes it easier to recycle the glass. Squeeze the bottle cap into an aluminium can but remember to remove the plastic insert first.
