The BIB Wine Company reached a milestone recently with wine packaging—bags and boxes—that are completely recyclable, and they’re making it super easy for consumers to do their part by supplying a free prepaid return pouch to close the product lifecycle loop.
The wine company partnered with Enval and its “Laminates League” to recycle the bags and taps used in BIB’s wine boxes.
Enval uses a proprietary process to break down the bags and taps into base materials (aluminum and plastic feedstock oils) that can be used in new products.
Oliver Lea, co-founder and managing director at The BIB Wine Company, says, “Joining the Laminates League enables us to offer our low carbon footprint packaging whilst ensuring the best possible recycling outcome for our products once used. We were hugely impressed with Enval’s technology, its existing capabilities and the team’s approach. We believe Enval’s solution will change the way we recycle in the UK and further afield for the better and closes the plastic waste loop.”
