Worldwide Provenance

Japanese distiller Suntory has just announced the launch of Ao, a new whisky that heroes the idea of collective provenance.

 Reusable Everyday

The world’s largest consumer brands have partnered with TerraCycle to launch a one-of-a-kind global recycling program, Loop. A subscription-based service, Loop collects used packaging and then hygienically cleans and sanitizes the empty packaging you send back so they are ready for reuse, instead of ending up as waste after a single use. Loop will be launched primarily in the USA and France in Spring 2019.
