3-Liter bag-in-box is the most carbon efficient wine package & produces the least waste – with a 55% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles in terms of energy needed for glass production and transportation, and 85% less landfill waste. Paperboard is easily recycled. Lighter weight means reduced fossil fuel emissions. The lightweight makes “From the Tank®” perfect for a picnic, a party, or simply to carry home and put in the refrigerator. Bag-in-boxes last up to one month once opened, if stored in the refrigerator. The vacuum-sealed pack inside the box keeps the wine fresh, so that you can drink a glass a night and avoid the waste that would come from a traditional bottle (ie regular glass bottles go bad in a few days).
