Winemakers are quickly adopting the screw-cap closure because it provides a better seal than cork closures.  And for wines that are to be enjoyed right away, winemakers believe the screw cap is an easy, no-fuss way to enjoy your favorite wine.

This adoption has created a massive recycling opportunity to go zero landfill with aluminum screw caps.  In Europe, “You can leave your cap on,” campaign is the first of it’s kind.  The goal is to encourage people to put the cap on before they put the bottle in the recycle bin.
