Boxes, bags, pouches, cans and even linen bottles - the sustainable alternatives to wine bottles
Briefly

Glass bottles are problematic in terms of sustainability and have a much higher carbon footprint compared to alternative wine packaging options like cans, kegs, paper or linen bottles, bag-in-box, and 'bagnum' pouches.
Glass requires extreme and energy-intensive heat to make, melt and mould, while alternative options have a lower carbon footprint.
Manufacturers are now producing lightweight bottles as light as 300g-400g, reducing energy in transportation.
Manufacturers can now produce resilient bottles as light as 300g-400g, or around 800g for sparkling wine.
