If you are reading this then you are probably wondering: Why does a whisky subscription company have a "Green and Local Commitment" page?
Well, I am glad your curiosity is piqued!
As the business has grown I decided to take a good hard look at some of the consumables we had in place, and to be honest, I didn't like what I found.
Were all sourced from the cheapest possible suppliers BUT we did not give thought to what practices those factories employed.
The bulk of our consumables were imported from overseas and where they are made wasn't exactly the most efficient or earth friendly way. Nor did this help anyone but the importers and our bottom line.
So I turned our collective eye inward - to Australia.
After a few month of searching I found a family business based in NSW, Australia that maunfactures PET bottles suitable for liquor storage, transport, recycling and best of all - is Carbon Neutral!
While it does indeed cost more to support Australian and earth friendly business I feel that this is a fair trade. These costs are not passed onto you, the customer, and will continue to be born by us.
