Casillero reduces footprint of the Diablo

Published:  03 November, 2010

Chilean wine producer Casillero del Diablo is on a mission to reduce its carbon footprint with the introduction of the Ecoglass lightweight bottle.

The new lighter bottle uses less energy in the production process and requires less fuel to transport it, helping the brand use 2,200 tonnes less glass per year globally.

It has also has contributed to a 700 tonne reduction in glass being used for bottles destined for the UK market, which equates to a reduction in the amount of CO2 being used per year of 140 tonnes.

The lighter bottles will be arriving on UK shelves from this month. The Diablo wine range is bottled in the bordeaux and burgundy bottle formats and the new Ecoglass bottles, weighing 500g, will reduce the weight of the bottles by 12% and 13% respectively.
