A new wine bottle packaging just launched that is made from 94% recycled paperboard with a liner built to hold the beverage, Independent reported. The innovation, called the Frugal Bottle, is about five times lighter than a typical glass wine bottle.

A Life Cycle Analysis, conducted by Intertek, found the Frugal Bottle has a carbon footprint up to 84% lower than a glass bottle and a water footprint roughly four times smaller than glass. The bottle’s carbon footprint is also more than a third less than a recycled plastic bottle.

The bottle was created by British sustainable packaging company Frugalpac. The first wine to hit shelves in the new paper packaging is from the Italian vineyard Cantina Goccia and will be sold online and at retail in Scotland, according to the company.
