That’s the Spirit! Bacardi’s Biodegradable Bottle Latest Boon to Beverage Packaging

October 23, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Set to arrive in 2023, the bottle — which will biodegrade in 18 months — will replace 80M plastic bottles currently produced by Bacardi across its portfolio of brands every year.

Hot on the heels of the unveiling last month of Absolut’s fully recyclable paper bottle — set to hit shelves in 2021 — and amidst a flurry of industry innovation determined to rein in our global plastic pollution problem, Bacardi this week unveiled plans to put what it’s calling “the world’s most sustainable spirits bottle” on shelf by 2023.
