These Wine Bottles are Made from Cardboard, 85% Lighter than Glass


California-based Ecologic Brands partnered up with Truett-Hurst winery to reduce the carbon footprint of wine bottles. What are they using instead of glass? Recycled cardboard, of course.

The bottle features the standard Bordeaux shaped and has a plastic liner inside. PaperBoy Wine claims to have a 67 percent  smaller carbon footprint than glass and to be 85 percent lighter than traditional bottles. Even better, you can bring it hiking, collapse it after you’re done drinking (no unwieldy bottle to carry!) and deposit it in a recycling site on the way home.  So, is anyone ready to drink on the top of a mountain with me somewhere? Please? I’ll bring the paper wine.
