To tread lightly on our Earth means to make smarter shopping decisions. When you walk into a grocery store you see aisles and aisles of plastic, glass and cardboard boxes. Inside those packages are sometimes more packaging. Then at home our garbage and recycling bins are full by garbage pick up day. Multiply that by every household on this planet and that is a lot of environmental harm. Bota Box understands this and they make buying their boxed wine products a choice that benefits our environment.
With wines that come in 100% recyclable packaging with BPA-BPS free wine bags inside, Bota Box truly has environmentally friendly packaging. Not all “eco-friendly” packaging is created equal. It’s important to make sure you see the official stamps on the packaging that assure you that the product you are buying is packaged with care. And even better then the words ‘recyclable’ are the words ‘reusable’. This means that, like Bota Box, VOC-free inks and post consumer fibers or other reusable sources are used.
Now that you have made an earth-conscious decision to by products that are creating less landfill waste it is time to celebrate. Because there is no glass or corkscrew you can take the wine to enjoy anywhere. Having it in a box that is more easily portable than bottles means transporting your wine is easier because 1 Bota Box equals 4 bottles of wine.
Shopping smarter is as easy as trusting what you read. So look for more than words. Look for the stamps and seals that say your product is truly eco friendly. I look for these stamps on packaging for this reason as well as assuring my foods and cosmetics are truly organic or natural. If we all made buying smarter a priority imagine how lightly we can begin to tread on our Earth. Keep the tips in the image below as a reminder on how to shop smarter.
