Wine—now, in a (little) Box!

Via on May 24, 2010

From the Bad-for-the-earth Invention that doesn’t Improve Anything Department.

The 8th Sign of the coming Judgement.

As my gran’pappy Waylon the IV usta say after a long day shootin varmints with Mitt, You know it’s classy wine when it comes with a box.

One other thing you know: Slow Food and “the mindful life” and all is facing an uphill battle when compostable forest-and-animal preserving cork is getting replaced by plastic and recyclable glass is getting replaced by this crap, hard-to-enjoy packaging.

    Yeah, but perhaps you're missing the point… drink enough of those little boxes and it seeeeeems like a good idea!

    LOL…

    Well, it improves their bottom line…

    The little box is actually pretty awesome for riding / hiking / biking, but – like almost everything else – 9 out of 10 times there's no excuse not to refill an existing container.

    regardless of it's mobility and cuteness, vino still tastes better coming from glass…….

    Am I silly for thinking about the recycling aspect?

    more tree cutting…:(

    Good point, Kevin. Still, if you're hiking, don't want breakables, might as well pack aluminum cans?

    so, nothing changed but the box of the classy wine. It's the waste.

    The blondie might look friendly… but don't be deceived. She drinks wine out of an unrecycleable container and smiles whilst doing it. Anyway. I guess you've got a point. We usually buy those win boxes so that we can go drink at the creek (broken glass ain't high class). Perhaps we should devote a few water bottles for that purpose in the future. I just hate going on a bike ride and taking that first sip that still tastes like wine or whiskey from the night before. The spins come back for one nauseating moment.
