Stay tuned for more episodes in this series, where we'll delve into various aspects of sustainability and showcase inspiring stories from different communities. Together, we can create a more sustainable future. After all, shouldn't every day be treated like it's Environment Day?

Just because your waste goes in the in the recycling bin doesn't mean it will actually get recycled. 

In fact, in the case of glass, in most instances it won't. 

Why? Because in single stream recycling, all recyclables are mixed. When glass breaks (and it will break because it's glass, duh?) the broken shards contaminate the rest of the recycling stream because the shards risk damaging the recycling equipment. 

Furthermore, sorting the different colors of glass adds cost. This reduces profit to the bottom line, so it's not 'worth it' for recycling companies to take it on. 

For glass to actually be recycled at a meaningful rate requires and overhaul of our recycling system in each municipality in the 50 states. 

Separating out the different materials and colors of glass would make a big difference (Euro-style) as would Bottle Bills. 

Until our US Recycling infrastructure is repaired, the key is to reduce your waste from the outset. 

Packaging type for wine that generates the least amount of waste is: Bag-in-Box!!!
According to the Nature Conservancy, the average carbon footprint for a person in the US is 16 tons, one of the highest in the world. Globally, the average is about 4 tons. To have the best chance reducing the rise in global temperatures, the average needs to hover under 2 tons by 2050. 🌍♻️

Each step we take in our personal and professional lives makes a difference. Often, we just don't know the impact of our actions; and if we did, we would happily make changes.

Changing our packaging habits overall is a great way to reduce emissions and waste! Switching from single use glass bottles, which generate a very high level of emissions AND waste to bag-in-box, 📦 which has the lowest emission of any packaging type for wine and generates the least amount of waste is an important step towards doing our part. ⭐🍷🌿💫
