Frugalpac’s bottles are crafted from 94% recycled paperboard, significantly reducing their environmental impact compared to traditional plastic or even glass bottles.

An independent study commissioned by the company revealed an 84% lower carbon footprint for Frugal Bottles when compared to glass.

Additionally, they boast a lesser water footprint and use up to 77% less plastic than standard plastic bottles.

Beyond their eco-credentials, Frugal Bottles offer practical advantages.

Their lightweight design (83g) makes them ideal for transportation and reduces weight during shipping. This further contributes to a lower overall carbon footprint throughout the supply chain.

The shatterproof nature of the bottles adds another layer of convenience, particularly for outdoor events and travel retail.

Frugalpac’s innovation has not gone unnoticed by major brands and retailers.

Sainsbury’s became the first UK supermarket to offer Frugal Bottles in 2022, followed by Aldi in March 2024 for its own-label South African wines.

Elsewhere, Whole Foods Market in the US recently began stocking Bonny Doon Vineyard’s ‘Carbon…Nay’ wine in Frugal Bottles, marking the product’s debut in the American market.

Frugalpac doesn’t just manufacture bottles; it also produces the machines that assemble them.

This innovative approach allows for the regional production of Frugal Bottles, further minimising carbon emissions associated with transportation.

The company said it has already secured export deals for its assembly machines to the US, Canada, and Australia.

Each machine can reportedly produce a significant volume of bottles (2.5 million annually), enabling local production hubs around the world.
