The importance of CO2 for our climate

Global industrialisation, along with other human-induced influences such as transport and livestock farming, has driven the concentration of greenhouse gases higher than ever before.
The burning of fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas or coal causes the release of large amounts of CO2. In the atmosphere, these emissions cause a rise in temperature that permanently damages our climate and endangers our current ecosystem.
Through climate change, however, we are also destroying our natural filter for reducing CO2 concentrations - the forest.  The forest pulls carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the air and stores the carbon ( C ) in the wood and forest soil.
However, the drought makes it particularly vulnerable to pests such as the bark beetle.
Our lifestyle has a great influence on CO2 emissions.
This raises the question of what mobility will look like in the future? Where can something be changed in the production of energy? Wind power is already a big issue here, as is electric mobility. Further innovations are being researched with the aim of stopping or at least mitigating climate change.
But packaging is also very important. How can packaging for certain products be made more efficient? The issue here is weight and the possibility of reuse or recycling. In some cases, a deposit system also makes sense. Here, especially for regional products with short distances from the producer to the customer. But it is not always possible and really efficient. This is often the case with wine, which often covers long distances from the bottler to the customer.  In the deposit system, these have to be transported back to the bottler by truck.
Alternatives already exist here and are becoming more and more popular. One of these is the bag-in-box. A cardboard box on the outside, a PE bag on the inside. Both are 100% very easy to recycle without using a lot of energy. If the bag is made of a composite material, it is very easy to burn, which generates ecological energy without releasing harmful exhaust gases into the atmosphere.
In addition, the bag-in-box is very easy to transport because it is very light. The calculation is actually quite simple. If I fill 3 litres into 4 bottles, I have a high additional weight due to the glass, which makes the lorry heavier and thus causes a higher consumption of energy (fuel/diesel).
In addition, the production and recycling of glass consumes a lot of energy and water.
This causes a relatively high CO2 footprint.
A bag in box compared to a bottle causes between 72% and 80% less CO2.
So with our wine concept we leave a quite small CO2 footprint.
In order to improve it even further, we are currently in talks with several associations and organisations that reforest our forests and compensate for the high losses in the forests. In the future, we will get involved in this area in order to strengthen the important natural filter of CO2.
With our wines we want to be as sustainable as possible. The Bag in Box wine or the wine tube is already a start here.
We offer very high-quality wines in the bag in box.
We call this quite simple - Enjoying clever wine!
