GREAT WINE WITHOUT THE UNNECESSARY PLASTIC
ENJOYING GREAT WINE SHOULDN'T HARM OUR OCEANS
At Sea Change Wine, we believe that enjoying great wine shouldn’t harm the earth. Sea Change was created to make ocean-friendly drinking an easy and sustainable choice for people that love wine, and also love our planet.
Delicious wine, in beautifully designed labels, and with no plastic packaging - much better for our planet! We still have work to do, and we're busy working on ways we can reduce our impact even further.
Simply choose a bottle or a case of Sea Change wines from our carefully selected range - you can do this in the confidence that not only will the wines taste delicious (just check out our Vivino ratings!) but that for every bottle you buy, a donation will be made to ocean charities.
OUR OCEANS ARE IN DANGER
Whether it's plastics, overfishing, global warming, tourism or pollutants, our oceans are under attack.
Yet they are vital to our survival! They provide us with water, with air, with fish, with bio-diversity that literally keeps our planet alive.
Our oceans are the heart and soul of our planet. Without them, we would cease to exist. Not only does the ocean supply us with water, but it produces half the world's oxygen.
It also stores 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere.
At Sea Change, we’re passionate about two things, wine and protecting our oceans. Stopping plastic from entering the oceans is a large part of ocean conservation, with many projects around the world dedicating themselves to the cause.
You can read more across our site - or check out some of our Ocean Charity Partners, such as the Olive Ridley Project, or Ocean Generation.
WHAT ARE ECO-FRIENDLY WINES?
For Sea Change Wine, eco-friendly wines mean two things:
1. Minimal packaging:
When enjoying a bottle of Sea Change Wine, you won’t be contributing to plastic pollution that harm our beautiful marine life.
We’ve removed the unnecessary packaging around the cork that other winemakers use as decoration. However, just because there’s little plastic doesn’t mean our bottles aren’t stunning.
With original art from our designer Katie Hannah, Sea Change bottles feature a range of aesthetically pleasing labels which are perfect as gifts for wine lovers.
2. Donations to our partners:
With every bottle of 75cl bottle of Sea Change purchased, we donate a minimum of 25 euro cents to our charity partners.
From the Olive Ridley Project to Sea-Changers, the projects our partners help facilitate range in size and scale, but they all have one common goal: to protect the ocean. We’ve already raised €100,000 for our partners, which has funded vital research and supported our charity partner, ‘Ocean Generation, who were behind the amazing film ‘A Plastic Ocean.’
There is, however, much more work to be done. So, why not purchase a bottle (or 6) of Sea Change wines and help us turn the tide!
OUR OCEAN-FRIENDLY RANGE AT A GLANCE
We make it easy for you to choose a wine or wine gift for any occasion – from a family BBQ or quiet night in with Netflix after a long day at work - to Birthdays and Valentines’ Day, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day – or just to say “thank you”.
Here’s a quick view of the wines we offer currently – with new wines being added to our range all the time. All our wines are suitable for vegetarians – and many are vegan.

OUR ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING
As well as removing plastic from the boxes, wrapping and labels we use for posting out your delicious wines, we've changed the way our bottles are packaged too.
Have you noticed that most bottles of wine have a plastic wrap covering the cork?
We believe this is unnecessary, so have removed them. We have minimised all Sea Change packaging to reduce our environmental impact: we use lighter-weight glass bottles, renewable plant-based closures and label paper from sustainable forests made in part from grape waste.
