Now Dry January is over, if you’re looking for a way to crack open a bottle of wine and still feel like you’re doing something good, we have the answer.
Sea Change Wine is helping to fight plastic pollution by donating money from each and every sale to marine conservation charities.
Co-founder Toby Hancock said: “We founded Sea Change Wine as we wanted to combine our love of great wine with our desire to do something to help protect our oceans. With the removal of unnecessary plastic on our wine bottles, labels made in part from grape waste and a donation to marine charities with every bottle sold, Sea Change is dedicated to turning the tide on plastic pollution.”
The eco-conscious brand selects light, easy-to-drink wines from award-winning vineyards in France and is a great way to show your loved one you care not just about them but about the planet too! We especially love their zesty Sauvignon blanc (£10.99) from Château Canet in the Minervois region of Languedoc-Roussillon.
With each bottle of Sea Change sold a donation will be made to marine conservation charities fighting plastic pollution, such as such as Plastic Oceans UK, Sea Changers and the Olive Ridley Project, making it an ideal choice for those who want to contribute to keeping the oceans clean and safe for marine wildlife.
Each wine is identifiable by a different sea animal label, hand-drawn with plastic hidden inside them. These beautifully illustrated labels were created to show the on-going dangers of plastic pollution – reminding people why we need to protect these creatures and their environment. As with all Sea Change wines, the packaging has been minimised and the unnecessary plastic wrap covering the closure removed.
The Sea Change wine collection is available to buy online here and free delivery is available for orders over £100 – what better excuse to splash out?
Interesting but not yet convincing:
A remaining dilemma: should one choose a Portuguese natural cork
, or… a PLASTIC one?
Both are environmentally not neutral.
