SUSTAINABILITY

Our shared purpose at Polgoon is to create high quality products using the best locally sourced ingredients, whilst doing as little damage to our environment as we possibly can.

Our inspiration comes from living in (what we think) is the most beautiful place in the world. We take great care in preserving our place on the planet and considering our impact, working as a team to ensure that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Polgoon has a strict recycling policy; we work closely with our customers and external teams to ensure we reduce transport and unnecessary packaging.  Our close connection to the land and the sea, means that everyone at Polgoon has a love and appreciation for the environment where we’re lucky enough to live and work. Following an initiative with Surfers Against Sewage and Plastic Free Penzance, we have tried to remove as much plastic as we possibly can from all areas of our business and we were subsequently awarded Plastic Free Status in January 2018 (read about it here).   We also recycle our grape and apple pressing waste into food for the cows that live on the farm next door!

Another great feature at Polgoon is our bees.  Although bees are not needed to pollinate our vines (they are self-pollinating), we know how important they are to the world as a whole and we are lucky enough to have 6 working bee hives on site.

What you can do to help:

Buy local wherever and whenever you can. Locally sourced products are often better quality and value for money, plus it helps support local producers and businesses in our community who will really value your custom.

Eat and drink in our wonderful, local, independent restaurants, cafes and bars. These businesses are often reliant on tourism, so they depend on your support; as do their suppliers.

Do your bit by not relying on the plastic bag. Try a Polgoon jute or canvas bag! Useful not only for carrying your Polgoon cider, but also your fruit and veg.

Please recycle our bottles after you’ve finished enjoying our wine and ciders, it’s a small price to pay to protect this wonderful Cornish countryside and coastline.

Thank you from Team Polgoon.
