Garçon Wines has released an environmentally-friendly 750ml wine bottle that is revolutionising wine retailing, logistics and delivery.
Garçon Wines is partnering with Bloom & Wild, the UK’s fastest growing online florist and the start-up that has mastered letterbox flower deliveries.
Customers can purchase the original letterbox wine in Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc varieties, both from Chile, and have them delivered directly to your door.
While focusing on tackling pollution from plastic waste, Garçon Wines’ bottles are made from 100% recycled PET and are fully recyclable, meaning no new virgin plastic is created.
The recycled material is significantly lighter than glass and tough enough to withstand the postal system.
The unique design means the packaging can fit securely and conveniently through a standard sized letterbox meaning no missed deliveries and ultimately leading to further reductions in CO2 emissions.
Santiago Navarro – CEO & co-founder of Garçon Wines, said: “As a responsible company our aim has been to create the most environmentally-friendly wine bottles that would innovate and revolutionise the way consumers receive wine and businesses supply this wine.
“Offering one of the first bottles in the world to be made from 100% recycled PET material has enabled us to create the greenest wine bottles available, as a result of them being 87% lighter and 40% spatially smaller than traditional wine bottles, hugely reducing carbon emissions from the wine supply chain.
“We are passionate about informing businesses and consumers alike about how the right plastic can, and should, be used responsibly and Garçon Wines will continue to innovate this space.”
The launch of Garçon Wines follows the success of their appearance on an international 6-part TV series for entrepreneurs, Pop Up Start Up, broadcast globally on CNBC and produced in association with ecommerce giant Alibaba, where Garçon Wines won a £20k prize.
