Ardagh Glass Packaging – North America has collaborated with Ste. Michelle Wine Estates to help the company transition to sustainable glass packaging.

Ste. Michelle Wine Estates has partnered with AGP – North America to transition its traditional glass bottles into Ardagh’s ECO Series glass bottles.

The innovative series provides all the sustainability advantages of glass while maintaining high quality, enhancing customer appeal and lessening the overall impact on the environment.

John T Shaddox, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh Glass Packaging – North America, said: “With a passion for sustainable practices and protecting the environment, Ardagh Glass Packaging values partnering with customers like Ste. Michelle Wine Estates.

“Utilising our ECO Series bottles, which meet the highest standards in technical and aesthetic quality for glass packaging, we are pleased to help Ste. Michelle achieve its sustainability goals.”

Ste. Michelle Wine Estates is the largest winery in the Pacific Northwest and among the largest premium wine companies in the US.

By transitioning one traditional glass bottle into Ardagh’s ECO Series glass bottles, Ste. Michelle was able to reduce its environmental impact and annually save the equivalent of:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions from 237 gasoline-powered cars driven in a year.
  • CO2 emissions from 214 homes’ electricity use for one year.
