We think there’s nothing more disheartening than waste. That’s why we ensure that nothing we use is wasted - from recycling the water used in our brewery into steam to heat the water in our distillery, to repurposing our shredded cardboard into packaging material. But the cycle doesn’t stop there, this May we’ve launched our #cancreation competition to encourage everyone to upcycle their used cans as well. What’s special about our cans? Aside from their beautiful designs and delicious contents, our aluminium cans are quite special. Did you know: 1. We work with a supplier who has increased the recycled content of aluminium cans up to 90% - the highest in the world! The current UK average is around 60% 2. Cans are one of the most widely recycled packaging materials at kerbside and when you recycle your beer can, it can be turned into a new beer can in as little as 60 days 3. Aluminium cans are much lighter than glass bottles, meaning we fit more onto our lorries each trip, reducing our fuel use and our transport emissions (plus more beer makes its way to you – win/win) Keep the cycle going by entering our #cancreation competition Now you can get involved by showing us how you choose to reuse yours. We’re looking for the most creative ways to upcycle aluminium cans. The winning entry, as chosen by our Environmental Sustainability Manager Benedict Orchard, will receive a 48-piece bundle of Ghost Ship and Dry Hopped Lager. How to enter Recycle a used can and take a picture of how it’s been repurposed. Submit this photo to @adnams via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #cancreation. You can find many of your favourite drinks in can form including:
  • Ghost Ship
