Hart Family Brewers now uses an environmentally-friendly tumbler when customers drink at the brewery.

The tumblers, made by environmental packaging specialist Biopac, are made from cornstarch and are 100 per cent compostable and sustainable.

Rob Hart, owner of Hart Family Brewers, said: “We hold lots of events at our brewery and further afield, and knew that disposable cups were the best option for us.

“We simply couldn’t face the thought of adding to the huge amount of plastic thrown away every year.”

Hart Family Brewers brew traditional English beers from top quality ingredients.

They were recently awarded gold in the Artisan Local Drinks Category in the Carlsberg Northants Food & Drink Awards 2013-14 for their 1833 India Pale Ale.
