New Shipping-Efficient Wine Package Helps The Environment
Stacked Wines recently unveiled new packaging for its wines that is featured in four interlocking, stackable stemless PET wine glasses that are comprised in a shrink sleeve label, Packaging World reported.
The individual glasses preserve a full bottle of wine by allowing the consumer to decide when to open them. Each glass can snap and unsnap "like a lego" to the top and bottom of another glass, the source reported.
"This is not just a packaging concept," said Jodi Wynn, co-founder and vice president of marketing and business operations for Stacked Wines, the source reported. "It's a premium wine that offers convenience. We don't see this as just a novelty; we see it as an improved way to package premium wine."
Wynn added that the packages are also lighter, so the carbon footprint is significantly reduced with streamlined shipping.
Stacked Wines is not the only alone in creating environmentally friendly packaging news, as new wash-off labels have been invented that leave behind no residue or glue, allowing for 100 percent bottle recycling in PET bottles, Food Production Daily reported.
The labels are designed to work in hot weather but wash off at 149 degrees fahrenheit during the recycling process.
