No to plastic bottles, yes to drinks with returnable empties! Today serving drinks in an ecosustainable way is very easy. With simple foresights it is possible to help the environment saving and reducing considerably waste.

The first green action is removing plastic bottles, the most common and diffused packaging. PET of plastic bottles is recyclable but the advantage of recycling is not enough to compensate the energy costs for the production. It is important to reduce the amount of produced waste at the source: for example preferring the distribution of drinks with returnable empties like glass jugs.

Many restaurants and other eco-friendly businesses of food & beverage sector have already equipped to serve tap naturalized water in glass jugs or draught drinks. Simple actions that help the ecosustainable businesses to save and spread among consumers good practices of ecosustainability because reusing glass containers involves less impact on the environment unlike the plastic disposable bottles.

Another diffused green trend is serving juices, shakes and cocktails inside recycled glass jars. It is a real trend! An old jar of jam decorated with mint leaves or citrus slices and the game is done. An original and alternative way to be ecosustainable and attract the attention of new customers.
