Cork’s Bubble Brothers are delivering wine in new eco-friendly packaging
Here’s a win/win for the weekend.
The next time you order wine from Bubble Brothers Wine Merchants in the English Market, you can be sure you’re making the environmentally conscious choice.
With the recent surge in online grocery shopping and home delivery services, Bubble Brothers have invested in a new method of packaging that is not only ecological but also protective and secure. Their new sustainable ‘Pulpsafe’ packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable and reusable.
“Since the advent of COVID-19, there has been a surge in orders from our website for home delivery, and we were delighted to find a robust, sustainable solution for shipping by courier,” said Billy Forrester, Managing Director of Bubble Brothers Wine Merchants.
“The new recycled boxes are far better for the environment than polystyrene, for instance, because if they can’t be re-used, they can be recycled yet again!’
“Wine is difficult to transport safely, like any liquid stored in glass. Bottles are easily broken if they’re not securely packed, and one breakage can ruin a whole mixed case. We’ve learned from experience that investment in packaging is money well spent, and the new boxes represent great value: they’re good for the planet, easy to pack and unpack, and they’re really strong and secure. We don’t charge for our transit boxes, but we hope our customers find creative ways to keep them going once they’ve arrived, whether that’s recycling or reuse.’
Bubble Brothers are also currently looking into implementing a discount system for the packaging that is returned to them for reuse. Check out the website to place an order.
