Which is better for the earth: boxed or bottled wine?



  1. 0 Votes

    Boxed wine is generally considered to be better for the environment than bottled wine, because it requires less energy to transport. It turns out that the largest slice of a wine container’s carbon footprint comes from the oil and other fuels used to transport it to your table. Glass bottles are comparatively quite heavy, and take a lot of energy to move; so switch to boxes cuts back considerably on energy consumption. As wine growers look for more sustainable ways to raise and market their product, boxed wine is likely to become increasingly common.
