Celebrating Boxed Wine

Many wine connoisseurs frown on box wine, the less appreciated but more practical packaging cousin to the glass bottle. The convenience of "bag in a box" packaging, invented in Australia, has earned global recognition however, being used by wine distributors in the U.S. as well as France. Recently, the packaging concept has been nominated for the 2006 BankSA Heritage Icons List.

Now if our country, the USA, needs to actually help put into place a real conservation program to help in recycling more plastics instead of just tossing these items and other like items into land fills. Our sociaty is heading into the wrong direction when it involves conservation policies. The worst problem is the laziness of our general populic and the so called leaders of our country. We have the oppertunity to make a difference in the overall growth of our nation, yet our leaders and the rest of the Lemmings that follow, are non-conforming due to the fact it takes away seconds of their precious life styles, just to be more aware of what is required of all the people who live here in this country.

It is our responsibility to maintain a healthy environment for futures in our posteruty. Now is the time to actually enforce and maintain a regulated recycling program of all plastic materials, and have the manufactures of such products be held responsible for their products as well. Our government is too laxed in maintaining a healthier environment, mostly due to the fact of greed and the race to control our country and how our money is being spent.

They are the major criminals in this factor of conservation and keeping a healthy environment. Wine in the plastic box, fine idea, now it needs to be processed properly once it is emptied out of its' product. Returned to its' home source for the proper disposal or recycled by its' manufacture!
