Faith in humanity restored! We appreciate your concern for the environment, trust us, we do too! While we would love to implement a system for collecting and reusing our cheerful yellow Thirsty carton boxes, our current delivery setup does not support reverse logistics. The complexity and overall cost associated with implementing such a system in our small operation far outweigh the benefits.
However, we want you to know that we are actively involved in sustainability efforts. As part of our commitment to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, we often reuse paper or carton packaging from other breweries to recycle them into protective packing material for your orders. This helps us reduce waste and minimise the need for additional carton partitions, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable packaging process.
What we suggest and highly encourage is for everyone to do their part by reusing our boxes for other purposes in their own homes. They can be great for storage, organising, or even DIY projects. Should the cartons need to be disposed of, we kindly ask that you separate and dispose of them in the blue recycling bins, which are usually present in all residential estates of Singapore. By doing so, we can ensure that the cartons are properly recycled and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Regarding the plastic holders, known as PakTechs, they are made of 100% recycled resin and are actually shipped with the beer from the breweries, packaged within the mother carton. While we have no control over how the breweries produce or package their beers for international shipping, we do reuse these PakTech holders to pack your order. This allows us to prevent one-time usage of the plastic material, secure the cans during delivery, and helps us work more efficiently during our pick-and-pack process.
Thank you for joining us in our efforts to reduce waste and protect the environment. Together, we can make a positive impact on Earth, after all, it's the only planet with beer!
