My Bota Box

Ahhh, as I sip a glass of wine from my Bota Box I think back to the good ol' days in College when drinking boxed wine wasn't uncool. Ok, so I have not had boxed wine since College (well until this weekend).

I am not a wine connoisseur by any means, but I do enjoy a good glass of wine. However, wine can get expensive. But I am trying to be healthier, so I know that I need to cut back on the amount of beer I drink. Plus I have been craving wine lately.

So I journeyed to the liquor store to buy some wine. I was looking for something organic or local. As I was wandering aimlessly around the liquor store, I came across the boxed wine. I saw the neighbors hauling in a bunch of boxed wine last weekend probably for a party, but it had me thinking. Do they make boxed wine that is decent these days? So I looked through the selection and I came across the Bota Box wine. Of course the big recyclable label on the front caught my attention immediately. Then I noticed that the Cabernet was tagged as being rated one of the top 100 (I think it was # 86) wines in the store according to someone. It didn't really matter. I was sold. It was $15.99. The box said it equals four 750ml bottles of wine. You know I am always looking for a bargain. The box is recyclable and lasts up to a month once it is opened.

So I bought the Pinot Grigio and the Shiraz. The Cabernet was sold out. The first thing I did when I got home was google Bota Box and I found this. Bota Box goes green. The box is printed on recycled paper containing 95% post consumer fiber. The box is 100% recyclable. The ink is soy based versus petroleum. They use unbleached paper and use cornstarch instead of glue.

Man, what a great deal. I got the equivalent of 8 bottles of wine for $34, it's easy to grab a glass of wine without opening a whole bottle, and it is environmentally friendly. This find made my weekend. Maybe boxed wine will make a comeback. It has in my house.

I am glad that at least one of my friends is going green. Since I work in a smoke filled no ventilation environment where we love to take little old ladies' social security checks, it is refreshing to hear your news.

I changed my eating habits and now only drink water (well, except for a little Jack occasionally), so I think the green smoothie would be really good. I will make some this week when I get to the store for my soy milk.

Tell me more about the reusable bags at the grocery store. I clicked on the link, but it gave me a page error. Let me know where I can get them. Chances are we won't have the same stores here, so publish a web address, if you have it.

I am glad to see the wine in a box come back. I remember those days...hmmm..awww. Although I haven't tried it, I will join your greenie project and at least start recycling my bottled water and glass bottles. I probably have 4 empty water bottles sitting in the floor board of my car as we speak.

By the way, it's Lauren. My code name is Lala because that is what Eva-E and Mattison call me.

I am so glad you left a comment. I will check the link to the reusable bags. I will also e-mail it to you. How are you?
