INNOVATIVE RECYCLING

it’s never been easier to enjoy a good red or white while being green.

Our eco-friendly wine pouch is designed to make enjoying quality wine in the great outdoors easier, faster and lighter, in every way.

NO EXCUSES RECYCLING PROGRAM

Thanks to our partnership with REDcycle, we're making it too easy to make mama nature proud!
Each six-pack of Greenskin Wine includes a PRE-PAID post-pack for you to place your empty pouches into and mail direct to REDcycle.

100% recyclable

Every part of your Greenskin pouch is recyclable, and if returned correctly, it will enjoy a second life as something awesome.

LESS ENERGY

A 750ml Greenskin Wine pouch takes 80% less energy to produce compared to a 750ml glass bottle.

LESS EMISSIONS

Due to the pouches low weight and compact nature, there are far less emissions when they're transported.

hard facts

You may think that wine in glass is the most sustainable packaging option, It is a common misconception, but is very incorrect.

According to Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), glass bottles, their secondary packaging and transport represent 68% of the product’s carbon footprint!

This is because:

Wine producers around the world are taking great measures to reduce their carbon footprint by adopting sustainable viticulture practices eg: organic, bio dynamic etc.

But with the growing concern about the volume of glass that ends up in landfill, plus the amount of carbon emitted to produce a glass bottle and transport it to market, wine packaging is the next obvious place to further reduce their overall environmental impact, and increase the sustainability of the wine industry as a whole.

We’re so pleased you can be part of the change!

Greenskin Wine joins Australian Packaging Covenant

Greenskin Wine is also a proud member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).

The APCO is a not for profit organisation leading the development of a circular economy for packaging in Australia. The APCO vision is a packaging value chain that collaborates to keep packaging materials out of landfill and retains the maximum value of the materials, energy and labour within the local economy.

Through our APCO membership Greenskin Wine aims to maximise our sustainability credentials by committing to a system of scrutiny and measurement that will ensure any claims we make can be verified and compared to industry best practices.

While it is not mandatory for us to join this organisation, we firmly believe that it is a significant way for us to “walk the talk” which we trust will give you, our greatest asset, a greater connection to our commitment to sustainability in wine packaging.

See how we’re tracking here:

The idea of putting wine into a soft pouch reared its head over a long lunch about 10 years ago, but back then the pouches were not recyclable and bringing more plastic into the world, and the oceans we so love, just did not sit well with us.

Over time, technology of materials and recycling methods have improved and the Greenskin pouch is now 100% recyclable, which gave us the motivation to proceed. Our creative daughter Ellen, coined the name Greenskin (being a play on the wine term 'Clean Skin' and incorporates the 'Green' environmental element), which we loved from the outset.

We are thrilled to be able to fuse our passion for great wine, the environment, and an active, outdoor lifestyle to give Aussies something that genuinely solves a problem for them (and us) all while being kinder to the planet.

We are so glad that you can be a part of the change!
