Made of recyclable cardboard with a recyclable food-grade plastic lining for wine or spirits, the Frugal Bottle is unique in that it can cost as much as a wine glass bottle.
1. The weight of the bottle is only 83 grams, which is only one-fifth of the weight of ordinary wine glass bottles, thus making it easier to carry and less costly to transport, while reducing the carbon footprint.
2. Environmentally friendly. The bottle is made of chemical-free recyclable cardboard, with a carbon footprint 84% lower than glass bottles, and its 15-gram food-grade plastic lining is 100% recyclable plastic, which can be recycled separately by simply separating it from the paper bottle again.
3、Since the bottle is made of paper, it is different from the majority of products that use glass wine bottles nowadays, and is more recognizable, which can make the product stand out visually.
4. For wine producers, this paper bottle offers complete creative freedom in design and printing, making the product look more colorful.
5. Frugalpac can provide machines for the production of Frugal Bottles, enabling wine producers and wineries to produce such bottles on their sites.
Our mission is to design, develop and supply sustainable packaging," said Malcolm Waugh, CEO of Frugalpac. The gas-saving bottle is 80% lighter than glass, has an 84% lower carbon footprint, and is easily recyclable. In addition to its outstanding environmental benefits, it looks and feels like nothing else. frugalpac's business model is to provide wine producers or packaging companies with machines to produce Frugal Bottles so that they can produce bottles on their site, thereby further reducing their carbon footprint.
Ceri Parke, owner of Cantina Goccia Winery in Italy, the first winery to use Frugal Bottle, says, "When some of our top hotel customers saw samples of our paper bottles, they had no hesitation that the bottles would be well received in their restaurants. It's much lighter than glass, easier to transport and kinder to the planet. Equally important, our wines still taste as good in the paper bottle as they do in the glass bottle.
