Sustainable wine packaging recognized for Earth DayIn recognition of Earth Day, wineries located in British Columbia with a demonstrated environmental commitment have been recognized by TricorBraun WinePak (, North America’s largest supplier of wine bottles, and Verallia North America (, the leading U.S. manufacturer of wine bottles.

The recognition is for their commitment to sustainable packaging by using the Verallia North America ECO Series™ bottles and involves two components.

Tags attached to wine bottle necks identify those wineries using the ECO Series bottles. The tag provides a QR code website link that explains to consumers how wineries reduced their carbon footprints by bottling their wines in the ECO Series bottles. The webpage also lists the names of the wineries and provides a link to those wineries’ websites.

Wine merchants and other wineries throughout the western wine producing states will receive information about the sustainability efforts embraced by many of British Columbia’s wineries.

“This program demonstrates to their customers the importance these wineries place in both the quality of their products as well as in the environment’s protection.” Heidi Cook, TricorBraun WinePak sales manager says.

The recognition program was launched April 1 and will continue through the summer months.
