Red and White go green

Now you can drink responsibly and recycle responsibly — Nakumatt at Milimani city is offering 20 percent off Pearly Bay wines if you bring in any empty wine bottles.

If you needed an excuse to drink more wine, this is it.

Nakumatt supermarket in Milimani has teamed up with one of Tanzania’s largest wine importers, Red ‘N White, to offer a 20 percent discount on purchases of Pearly Bay wine when a customer brings in any empty wine bottles.

“This will allow residents who drink wine a great option for recycling glass. Recycling just one glass wine bottle saves the equivalent amount of energy that it takes to power a television for 2.5 hours,” says Matthew Haden, of the Recycler.

Haden’s company is collecting the recycled wine bottles, and will turn them into new bottles.

Glass is 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled endlessly, however if it is tossed in the trash it will not decompose for thousands of years, says Haden.

“We are really happy to associate such a leading brand as Pearly Bay with this remarkable initiative, hoping it might become a trend setter for future recycling programs,” says Red ‘N White’s director Filip Tack.
