WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO BE MORE SUSTAINABLE WITH YOUR PACKAGING?
To make sure we are always improving our sustainability efforts, we hold the ISO14001 Certification
Here are some recent changes we’ve made to our packaging to ensure we are using less:
- We have worked with our bottle manufacturer to lightweight our glass, meaning less materials required in the manufacturing and less waste and energy used in the recycling
- Stowford Press Apple cans moved to a carded outer April 2019 onwards, removing the plastic mid-cones from the pack
- Some of our bottled brands already have paper labels and we are investigating if we can move other plastic labels over to paper labels
- We have reduced the depth of our generic can tray from 6mm to 4mm to reduce the amount of cardboard packaging required
- We no longer have PVC liners in our bottle lids (crowns), so these can be recycled
WHERE DOES YOUR FRUIT COME FROM?
We are a rural business, with values deeply rooted in the Three Counties of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. All of the cider apples and perry pears that go into a Westons Cider product come from a 50-mile radius of the cider mill. The fruit is cared for by our local growers, some of which, we have been working with for many generations
HOW SUSTAINABLE IS YOUR SITE?
Working so close to nature for 5 generations has been fundamental to the success of our company and we continue to focus on further sustainability initiatives for future generations
- We’ve created a wetlands habitat at Westons as a natural means to treat our used water
- We can discharge a majority of our waste water to the local brook, due to our in-house waste water system, meeting Environment Agency and ISO140001 standards.
- We have a reedbed that was constructed in conjunction with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) which helps to filter water and provides a habitat for nature
- Irrigation for our orchards is taken from the wetlands during summer months
- To limit demand on our local water supply, we have our own borehole and spring
- The spent yeast from the fermentation process and apple waste (pomace) is used in animal feed
- We capture condensate water from the factory and route back to our boiler
- We have solar panels on our office building to generate electricity for our computers
