The Cayman Islands Brewery has a long history with involvement in green initiatives in the Cayman Islands. From the outset the company aimed to adhere to best practices when it came to limiting its impact on the environment, from limiting pollution to promoting recycling.

It recycles Caybrew bottles, which are washed and sterilised before being reused, limiting the number of bottles that end up going to the dump. It also collects aluminium cans for recycling, while the spent grains from the brewing process is used by local farmers to supplement the diet of their livestock.

One of the more recent initiatives was the involvement of the brewery’s latest brand, White Tip Lager, with conservation efforts in the Cayman Islands. Although the packaging of the beer depicts the shark species for which it is named, all species of shark stand to benefit from the sale of the beer, as a percentage of each sales goes towards the Department of Environment’s shark conservation programme.  Read the whole story here.
