Going greener in Champagne

In today’s NYT’s Business Day section, Liz Alderman wrote a piece describing how some Champagne producers have changed their bottles in an attempt to reduce their carbon footprint.

I was pleasantly surprised by this news.  We think of Champagne as a region steeped in tradition, with an image of luxury that it must work hard to protect.  If they are willing to change their bottle by slimming its shoulders to reduce its weight, perhaps other regions will follow suit.
