In 21st Century life, we are becoming increasingly conscious about our plastic consumption and our carbon footprint upon the earth.
Yet, for many of us, we don’t stop to think about another source equally as damaging to the planet: food waste.
Toast Ales are playing their part by creating beers brewed using surplus and wasted bread, partnering with other breweries to breakdown the loafs, mash in, and create some wonderful beers.
This week, we talk to co-founder, Louisa Zaine all about sustainability and food waste in the food and beverage industry.
One of the biggest challenges faced by the brewing/ beverage industry is environmental sustainability.
NicheSolutions are promoting new ways to do business by investing in innovative, energy-efficient projects with low impact on the environment.
Their Nc6 can holders are just one new, cost-effective way for brewers to make a difference – and they’re already proving popular.
The UK’s first 100% eco-friendly six-pack holders are made from 100% recycled wood pulp, which in turn is 100% biodegradable. We’re proud to say they have earned the prestigious DIN CERTO certificate of compostability.
Whether you’re a brewer producing cans of beer or a consumer drinking them, it surely makes sense to stop using plastic can holders.
Why add needlessly to the planet’s mounting plastic waste problem, and create a long-term threat to the environment, to birds and sea life? Even beyond the problem of landfill sites and oceans filling up with plastic, the old-fashioned plastic 6-pack holders pose an extra hazard to birds and animals.
That’s why many consumers now snip them with scissors before disposal. NicheSolutions’ new Nc6 six-pack can holders fit 330cl, 440cl and 500cl cans, and are priced at only 23p each.
