We want to make people and planet equal. We’re committed to reducing our use of plastic and are so happy to finally announce we are carbon-neutral. We value long-term and direct relationships with all of our suppliers and keep our supply chain as short as possible, to keep our carbon footprint as low as we can and to ensure that those who work so hard to make our great ingredients are paid fairly.
MORE INFORMATION ON OFFSETTING
Dalston’s supports the Solar energy Outapi Namibia offsetting project, which helps deliver greater benefit for local people from Namibia’s solar energy.
In Namibia, the sun shines an average of 10 hours a day – it is one of the sunniest countries on Earth and therefore has enormous potential for solar energy. However, the country imports 60 percent of its electricity from neighbouring countries and 40 percent of the rural population has no access to electricity at all. In northern Namibia, a ten-hectare solar energy farm produces 9,000 MWh of energy per year.
Producing power since July 2018, it was developed with the support of ClimatePartner. The project contributes to increasing the share of renewable energies in Namibia’s electricity mix to increase and improve the national and regional power supply.
REAL FRUIT AND NOTHING WEIRD
Staying true to our roots, the soda making process and the integrity of the liquids we use, all of our recipes are developed in-house by Duncan for people to enjoy. A recipe man at heart, Duncan felt that there had to be a way to challenge convention and make delicious drinks that didn’t use the refined sugar or sweeteners that were prevalent in the soft drinks world- working closely with our farming partners, we were very proud to launch our range in 2019 which is made from just delicious fruit and sparkling water, and less than 50 calories a can.
Cans have a higher collection rate than PET. When you take into account the recycling process losses, the picture for PET is much grimmer.
A can uses half the material weight compared to a CSD bottle.
Cans are infinitely recyclable vs PET which degrades over time with a maximum 5 cycles.
The life cycle analysis doesn’t consider key impacts of PET into marine or human life, i.e. degradation into microplastics and its effects.
