Since Earth Day is this coming Sunday (April 22) let’s talk about two of our favorite things at Karma: being eco-friendly, and wine. Oh yes, you can be eco-conscious with wine, and in more ways than one. Here are just a few:
1. Sustainable winemaking
First of all, you can support wineries that use sustainable farming methods in their winemaking. Both Goosecross Cellars and Chandon grow their grapes while preserving the earth.
2. Eco-friendly packaging
Clif wine (which also uses sustainable farming methods) sells their wine in packaging that produces less waste. The pouch has 2 bottles worth of wine but with 90% less waste than two glass bottles.
3. Reusing the bottle
After you enjoy the wine, there are still things you can do for Mother Earth. Paddywax candles pour environmentally-friendly soy wax into cut wine bottles:
Or you can grow your own herbs with the organic hydrogardens made from upcycled wine bottles:
4. Use the whole grape
These grapeseed oils use the leftovers from winemaking, called the pomace (the seeds, skins, and stems) to get their oils.
We love that all these awesome, beautiful products are also sustainable, and we’re proud to support them. Feel free to check out our other eco-friendly products (they’re all over Karma) and have a happy, sunny Earth Day!
