Green Wine

The only way to be truly ‘green’ with wine is to take your recycled container to the winery and have wine poured directly from the bulk container.  (Wineries actually do this for very cheap wine.)  Even so, here at halfwine we still care about the environment. Below are three simple promises we have made to help the environment...

How we package your wine



Our box is thin, strong & uses the least material possible. What's more, it's from a sustainable forest, 100% biodegradable & 100% recyclable. The plastic airsacs are recyclable, eliminate breakages and enable our outer carton to be smaller and thinner.

However, if you are not prepared to accept plastic of any sort we have an all carboard box that you can buy for the princely sum of £1 for 6 half bottles. Please click here for details.

The wine we choose for you



Wherever possible we source our wine from producers who farm organically or at least 'nurture nature', that is, they minimise the use of chemicals and fertilisers.  The picture above was taken in a Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy and shows the organic farming approach on the right half of the vines.

Recycling the packaging



All the packaging, the outer carton, the airsacs and the bottles are 100% recylable.

How can Airsac® be recycled?
Airsacs and plastic shopping bags are not widely recycled at kerbside. The easiest step is to use a return-to-store recycling facility at a large supermarket. These are widely available across the UK and they accept category 4 (LPDE) plastics. This is because most plastic carrier bags are made from LDPE film. See the manufacturer's website here for details.
