How do we talk about this without sounding preachy?! Ok, let's have a go...
We've kind of dropped the ball a bit with our emissions and what we're doing to this planet, and the wine world is one of the industries really at the coal face (pardon the pun!) of climate change. Vines are often referred to as the "canaries in the cage" of Climate Change, and whether it's getting warmer or cooler, drier or wetter, seasonal or out-the-blue, vines are precious little buggers that are starting to struggle across the world.
There are tough choices to come, but for now, let's enjoy the fact that there are still some easy wins to begin with, and let's bloody well do them! Sounds simple enough to us.
That's why Feel Good Grapes pledges tree planting schemes to offset the carbon footprint of each individual bottle every time one of you wonderful people buys a bottle. One bottle bought equals one tree planted. We also aim to ensure that our packaging is as close to 100% recyclable or compostable. Easy enough so far!
But more than that we know that offering out wines from around the world means the extra footprint of the wines arriving on our shores from the producers as far away as the Americas and Australasia. That's why we pledge to buy carbon credits to offset all of our importing activity.
