New lighter weight cans save on CO2

The latest in a string of sustainability initiatives at Myrtle Farm

The latest in a string of sustainability initiatives at Myrtle Farm is the introduction of a new lighter weight can for our ciders. We’re looking to save approximately 381 tons of CO2 during 2019 by using this new can. In fact, we’ll be saving the equivalent of 5.9 million empty cans a year.

We’re always looking at different ways of reducing our impact on the environment. We’re committed to cutting waste and doing our bit to bring about change. Did you know we were the first cidermaker to ditch plastic ring carriers on our four-pack of cans, introducing instead recyclable cardboard outers.

Investing in sustainability is one of our key priorities. So we’re working towards eliminating all plastic from our consumer packaging for cans and bottles. We’re continuing to invest in sustainability throughout all stages of the cidermaking process, from development of our new energy efficient warehouse and mill at Myrtle Farm, through to ambitious plans to reduce to zero, waste sent to landfill from the cidermaking process.
