UK Wine Show 161 Nicola Jenkins of WRAP on recycling - 2
This show was published 19 June 2009
WRAP helps individuals, businesses and local authorities to reduce waste and recycle more. We interview Nicola Jenkins to find out about alternative materials to glass.
WRAP advises brand owners on the environmental benefits of different materials to glass e.g. PET, aluminium cans, Tetra Pak, bag in box. Clear PET is more recyclable than coloured PET and is much lighter than glass and therefore less environmental impact when transporting.
WRAP has researched how recycled glass is used. Most wine is packaged in green glass and so by encouraging the bulk importation of wine to the UK green glass can be recycled and used to manufacture wine bottles in the UK rather than at the source of wine production.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
