Refillable Beer Bottle program at Bottledrop Find Bottledrop Web: Over time, the idea of convenience has been sold to, and taken a priority in our culture. Often, this convenience results in negative effects to our environment. One-time use items like plastic shopping bags, straws, coffee cups are all items that we can use daily and be thrown away. When it comes to the beer world and environmental footprint, the container is a big item to consider. For sure, cans and bottles are recyclable, which offers a reduced impact. There’s also been some debate on the idea that cans are better for the environment than bottles, which we touch on a bit in this interview. One thing that other countries are still doing, which has fallen off the American radar, is the idea of washing and reusing bottles for beverages like beer. This is not a new thing, and it makes total sense right? Enter Nick Munson-Phelps, the refillable program manager for BottleDrop Refill. Nick has been leading an effort in Oregon to design and implement a refillable bottle program that breweries have already started using. Join us on this episode to learn all about the sustainability and benefits of using refillable bottles on this episode of Branding Brews.
