Metro Drinks and the Environment

Transporting bottled drinks around the country isn't very 'Green'. On average, it takes 3.3 litres of diesel to deliver 1,000 half litre bottles over 100 miles in an average sized lorry (i.e. 17T). And 3.3 litres of diesel throws 9kg of CO2 into the atmosphere (equal to 2.5kg of carbon). So multiply that by the millions of bottled drinks drunk each year...! Not a pretty number.

At Metro Drinks we try to ensure that everything we do is as 'Green' as can be. Here's how, but there's still more we can do and we're working on it:

In 2012 we'll be working on further ways of reducing our carbon footprint.
