O-I: O-I expands line of lightweight wine bottles
O-I’s line of 750 ml, lightweight claret and burgundy bottles is part of the O-I Lean+Green® initiative designed to create aesthetically pleasing, durable, yet lighter weight bottles using advanced manufacturing techniques.
The bottles weigh 14 oz. (397 grams) as a result of an improved design that reduces bottle weight and energy consumption. The Lean+Green line is available in a variety of colors, including Champagne Green, Flint, Emerald Green and Dead Leaf Green. 16-27% lighter than current offerings. With this addition, O-I North America now offers lightweight wine bottles ranging from 11.6-16 oz. The comprehensive lightweight line retains the premium image of glass without noticeable changes in appearance and feel.
