We love our bottles of wine, and we love the sound of the cork coming out of the bottle. Sadly, bottles of wine are bad for the environment. Today, we’re going to explore flat wine bottles as a better option for environmental goodness.
Why Are Traditional Wine Bottles Problematic?
The flatness of the bottles allows you to squeeze more wine into shipping containers, which further cuts down on CO2 emissions.
The flat-pack bottles are made from 100% recycled and recyclable PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, which in the United States is recycled at the same rate as traditional wine bottles.
I came across a bunch of great photos. Besides the one at the top, here are my favorites.
So the big question for you is whether you’re willing to forego the traditional bottle for the environmental benefits you get from a flat wine bottle. I know I am. I might record corks popping out of bottles so that I can experience that occasionally. But I’m eager to see us move in this direction. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
