With nearly everyone happy to see the backside of 2016, most of us are especially grateful to have a shot at that symbolic clean slate that January always promises. And this year, clean living doesn’t seem to be quite as important as social responsibility judging by many in the food and drink industries who are renewing their commitments to making the world a better place. As such, 2017 is already shaping up to be the Year of Mindful Eating and Drinking.
In August, 42BELOW® hosted the Cocktail Earth Cup, where bartenders designed delicious eco-friendly, zero-waste drinks.

And now, with ‘42BELOW Recycled Cocktail Lemons Eco Soap’ this is their third planet-saving initiative in as many months.
