Wine is the perfect pairing for any event, but it’s also important to know how to be a sustainable consumer of wine. Our wine blog is here to give you some sustainability tips for being a conscientious consumer.
At Halovino, we just announced our sustainability initiative at the 2019 Food Network and Cooking Channel South Beach Wine and Food Festival. Our uniquely-designed HaloVino wine glasses are shatterproof, recyclable, and reusable.
Use our wine blog to learn more about the world of wine, order your own set of HaloVino wine glasses, and become a responsible consumer.
Things like aluminum/metal, paper, glass, plastics #1-7, and cardboard can be recycled in most cities. Even if you’re in a location that doesn’t have a readily-available recycling bin, hold on to your recyclables until you get home. If you empty your bottle of wine, recycle it! If you ever find yourself needing to dispose of your HaloVino glass, recycle that too! Every glass is 100 percent recyclable.
Plastic is not decomposable, so when it gets sent to a landfill, it sits there. To be a more sustainable consumer, bring your own reusable bags and limit the number of plastic bags and wrappings your bring home. This means that the next time you buy a bottle of wine, opt against putting it in a plastic or paper bag. Just slide your wine under your arm and avoid using another plastic product.
Buy local and organic
Find wine made with grapes grown with organic farming practices, or wine that was made by a local winery. When you buy local and organic, you support your local wine production and get a wine that tastes amazing. When you grab your next bottle of locally-made wine, you might want to fill your HaloVino to the top — just this once.
Be a conscientious event-goer
When you attend an outdoor event, like the 2019 Food Network and Cooking Channel South Beach Wine and Food Festival, it’s tempting to leave your trash wherever you can. But think about the trace you’re leaving behind, outdoor event or not. If you’re planning on drinking wine at an outdoor event, bring your HaloVino glass and take it home with you to wash and reuse!
Wine is always satisfying, whether it’s paired with cheese, pasta, or enjoyed by itself. But if you want to be more sustainable in your wine consumption, avoid disposable dishware or use products, like the popular Eco-Products brand, that are decomposable. The HaloVino glass is both recyclable and reusable, making it a great option for a wine glass.
Reduce the amount of water you use in your home. If you spend less time in the shower, that’s more time you can spend drinking a glass of wine in one of our HaloVino glasses. While you’re at it, read through our wine blog while enjoying your glass of wine.
Instead of throwing away things you don’t use anymore, donate them! For example, instead of dumping that half-bottle of wine you have left, share it with someone else or donate it to someone who will enjoy it!
Lower Energy Costs
The emissions created by energy use are harmful to the air and the climate. Conserving the amount of energy you consume inside your home will not only lower your monthly utility costs, but it will also make you a more sustainable consumer. Instead of sitting in front of a television all day, curl up with a book and a glass of wine — filled to the brim of one of our HaloVino wine glasses.
At Halovino, we are dedicated to promoting sustainability, something that is seen through the unique, eco-conscious design of our HaloVino wine glasses. Each glass is shatterproof, keeping shard of glass or plastic out of landfills and off the ground, and every glass is dishwasher safe and recyclable.
By having a wine glass that will not break and can be rewashed and reused, you can enjoy your wine while also being a sustainable consumer of wine. Follow our wine blog for more information about promoting sustainability, our unique Halo design, and all things wine!
