Plastic wine bottles trialled to boost recycling.

The Hertfordshire-headquartered Wine Society (UK) launched a trial of the polyethylene terephthalate bottles. Created by innovative packaging produce Packamama, the containers weigh 63g compared to an average of 460g for glass equivalents.

​ They are made from recycled material, can be fully recycled themselves and are shaped to better stack in a box to further reduce transport costs and carbon emissions.

​ While the Society believes taste isn’t impaired by the plastic bottles, it is urging drinkers to consume the wine within six months.The recycled plastic bottle is a really good option. It has a lower-carbon footprint than glass and can be recycled at home.
