Mind Your Menus: What to Expect from the World of Food and Drink in 2017
With nearly everyone happy to see the backside of 2016, most of us are especially grateful to have a shot at that symbolic clean slate that January always promises. And this year, clean living doesn’t seem to be quite as important as social responsibility judging by many in the food and drink industries who are renewing their commitments to making the world a better place. As such, 2017 is already shaping up to be the Year of Mindful Eating and Drinking.

Introducing the World’s First Soap Made from Your Old Cocktails
In case you haven’t noticed, the world today is pretty much buggered. Global warming. Deforestation. Disposable forks. Plastic straws. They’re wreaking havoc on our precious little planet, and if we continue to let this happen, we’re all dead. So the good people at 42BELOW® vodka have decided to launch their own kiwi planet-saving initiative and are introducing ‘42BELOW Recycled Cocktail Lemons Eco Soap.’ The world’s first soap made from recycled cocktail lemons, and probably the odd martini olive. It’s recycling, on a sociable scale.

Bacardi Cuts Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Half
With sustainability, small steps add up; however, Bacardi has forged ahead with giant leaps. The largest privately held spirits company cut its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity, worldwide, in half—more than a year earlier than its end of December 2017 target. This astounding 50% reduction in GHGs is equivalent to taking 15,000 cars off the road each year, reducing oil use by 165,000 barrels annually or installing 18 wind turbines.
