Plastic free July: choose eco-friendly wine gift packaging

plastic free JulyAs corporate personalised wine and Champagne suppliers, we understand the impact packaging has on the environment, which is why we support the Plastic Free July movement. With this big focus on the need to reduce plastic pollution, we thought we’d tell you how we make our packaging as recyclable and environmentally friendly as possible.

Sustainability is important to Wines Select

Our wine and Champagne gift packaging needs to take into account appearance, protection and sustainability. So, we’re continually seeking out the best plastic-free solutions that won’t sacrifice durability or style.

In the past year we have sourced custom-made cardboard outers to ensure there is no unnecessary empty space within the box. Made to measure packaging provides better protection for the wine bottle and reduces the need for any plastic void bags and bubble wrap. The cardboard outer can then be easily recycled.

Our wooden bottle boxes are made from FSC approved pine timber and come from sustainable sources, and the wood wool shred inside is 100% biodegradable.

If your budget does not allow for wooden wine boxes our Polysafe range is an ideal option. This material provides excellent protection and does not use chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or other “greenhouse” gases which are believed to damage the ozone layer and can be cost-effectively recycled.
