In honor of Earth Day 2015, Andegavia Cask Wines has joined 1% for the Planet!
What does this mean? As a business, we have environmental responsibility just like any other citizen of our planet. Aside from producing a sustainably packaged wine, Andegavia is taking it one step further by pledging to donate 1% of our sales to non-profit organizations focused on sustainability!
This new membership is a culmination of what we at Andegavia are striving for: using our business to help drive societal change. With our 100% recyclable cask packaging, we are trying to create change in the wine industry by reducing the waste it causes and the energy it demands. Without the use of heavy glass bottles, Andegavia is able to save the earth and you some green through reduced energy consumption in production and shipping, providing up to a 75% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles.
Every time you purchase one of our casks, 1% of that sale is donated to non-profit environmental organizations focused on sustainability. Therefore, as a consumer, you can feel good that your purchase with us is directly helping create a healthy planet, empowering us all to drive positive change! Show your love for the Big Blue Planet by supporting businesses which are members of 1% for the Planet!
