Green Champagne

The Comité Interprofessionel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC) recently announced the design of a lighter champagne bottle (2 ounces lighter, to be exact). This new design is being launched in an effort to reduce the region's carbon emissions. The resulting annual CO2 reduction that can be expected will be about 8,000 metric tons. This is the latest in an ongoing campaign to reduce CIVC carbon emissions by a total of 75% by 2050.
