Banfi Vineyards

6 BanfiThis vineyard converted to lighter bottles in 2009. This may not seem like a major step, but swapping out 500 gram bottles for 400 gram ones (and, since mid 2014, 360 gram ones) saves substantially on raw materials.

Since making the change, Banfi has used 6,340 fewer tonnes of glass than if it’d stayed with its original bottles.

This saving has meant 24,416,666 KWh (Kilowatt hours) of energy being saved, which in turn has resulted in almost 8 million kg less in carbon dioxide pollution.
