gay-wedding-champagne-pop-earthHappy Earth Day! Let’s celebrate Mother Nature with some Champagne, shall we? Some green Champagne that also does some good for the world, like the new POP Earth NV Champagne from French Champagne house Pommery. The eco-friendly Brut-style addition is blended from 70 percent pinot noir, 20 percent chardonnay and 10 percent pinot Meunier, and is intended to reflect Pommery’s ongoing commitment to making outstanding Champagne while using sustainable practices. For example, the house practices sustainable wine growing, managing waste and limiting water and energy consumption. To be kinder to Mother Nature, the new POP Earth bottle uses lighter glass (only 1.85 pounds) than conventional Champagne bottles (2 pounds), which in turn reduces pollution and energy costs during shipping. The bottle features a label made from some recycled materials and is printed with water-soluble inks. Pommery also uses sea transportation instead of air, which saves on fuel costs and energy usage. $55/750 ml. Available at most fine wine stores and
