“Did you know that 70% of wine’s carbon footprint comes from the glass bottles? Switching from glass to aluminum bottles that are made of 100% recycled material significantly reduces our carbon footprint. Join us in saying goodbye to single-use glass and embrace the aluminum!”
Here’s the deal, from the vine to your gullet there’s an inevitable carbon footprint that comes with wine production. What I hadn’t realized is 70% of that carbon footprint comes from glass bottles. Revelshine Wines recognized this outsized impact on sustainability and decided to make a high quality aluminum wine bottle that matches their high end wine. Interesting fact: every time aluminum is recycled, pound for pound, it saves 333 times the energy compared to glass.
The advantages of Revelshine’s aluminum bottles go beyond the obvious environmental benefits as they are impact resistant and resealable, making it an ideal option for those of us who need a bit more rugged vessel for our beverages of choice…think throwing a bottle in your pack before heading out for a day of skiing, hiking, mountain biking ect. Each twist top bottle of Revelshine holds 500ml of wine, the perfect amount to share with a couple friends at the top of a mountain after a long ski tour or banks of a river to commemorate a day of fly fishing.
