Wine shipped by sail reduces carbon
Wine sellers look to wind- another climate canary
A gimmick or legitimate effort to reduce greenhouse gases? An article in the Irish Barkeeper website reports that several wine sellers have commissioned a 100 year-old schooner to deliver fine wines to Ireland from France to reduce the carbon footprint of the shipments.
“The wine was transported to Ireland aboard the 108 year-old Kathleen & May schooner to reduce the carbon footprint of the wine – each bottle will save 4.9oz of CO2 emissions and is labelled, “Carried by sailing ship, a better deal for the planet”.
