Our business ethos has always been to not use plastic. It takes a bit of research on our part but we feel it is time well spent.
We now have a new addition to our gin bottles. On their necks you will see a tamper sleeve. You may be surprised at first sight, considering our environmental values. It looks like plastic but it isn’t. It is made from cellulose which is 100% biodegradable.
The sleeves are a specific size for our bottles because they shrink to fit. No heat shrinking is required for this process...
Here’s a link to a video clip showing how the sleeves decompose. The website also includes more information about them. Please share with other businesses who aim to be plastic free https://www.viscoseclosures.com/celons-viskrings/
The sleeves can be put in your kitchen caddies or compost heaps. They take about 5 weeks to decompose. Will your bottle of Papillon Gin be finished before the sleeve has become compost?
