We are a small company but we are making a big commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and making the planet a better place. By purchasing an Eco-Refill Pouch you are helping us help the environment.
Our glass bottles take up a lot of energy to produce, and due to their weight when they are being transported they use a lot of carbon emissions. We’ve been inspired by many of you up cycling our beautiful bottles into useful objects and 100% agree that they are too good to throw away. Every bottle you save and re-use will help us reduce our carbon footprint and save you some money.
When your bottles run low all you need to do is switch to buying our refill pouches. They come in a package that is letterbox friendly so you don’t need to be at home to receive it. Simply, pour the gin from the pouch into your Bullards bottle at home and then post the empty pouch (no envelope or stamp required) in any royal mail post box and they will be returned to us at the distillery to recycle.
The reason we ask you to send them back to us is because two thirds of all plastic waste in the UK is not recycled. This is due to the confusion with different local authorities about what can and can’t be recycled. We work with TerraCycle who divert millions of tons of plastic waste a month, so by sending our eco pouch back to us we can guarantee that it is up-cycled and doesn’t end up in landfill or in our oceans.
It’s simple, switching to our refill pouch saves you money on your gin! The cost of our bottle cost is eliminated and we pass this saving straight onto you. Also, as the pouch weighs significantly less than a bottle we can now offer you free postage within the UK on all refills pouches purchased online.
We’re on a mission to reduce our carbon footprint and as a company be more environmentally conscious. We are constantly looking at how to be better, from reducing waste to sourcing locally to lessen our impact on the environment. Our eco pouch makes our shipping process more efficient producing less CO2 and by using Royal Mail to deliver your pouches we are using existing delivery routes rather than creating new ones, again less CO2 production.
Being mindful of our planet and taking responsibility to work hard towards making sure we are doing our bit to help reverse the current critical state our planet is in is hugely important to us. Closed Loop Recycling is our holy grail! As our eco pouch project grows so will our working relationship with Terracycle to up-cycle our pouches into objects that we can then re-use at the distillery, so our packaging loop is completely sustainable. It doesn’t stop here for us, we have other eco projects in the pipeline for 2020 and look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.
…awarded to Bullards for their Eco Pouch Project for successfully showing widespread and ongoing commitment to achieving their environmental sustainability objectives, with innovative solutions and a culture of sustainability.
