Diageo have announced they're going plastic free in producing beer.

The beverage company is investing £16million to reduce the amount of plastics used in their packaging.

The plastic used will be replaced with 100% recyclable and biodegradable cardboard.

The new sustainable beer packs will be on shelves on the island of Ireland from August 2019.

The recyclable beer pack will be on sale in Great Britain and other international markets from Summer 2020.

Individual cans are already fully recyclable, including the widget which is contained inside cans of Draught Guinness.
