03 Reduce

Gravity Bound Brewing Company is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to weatherize our cold room. We intend to increase the amount of insulation, seal, and better shade our cold storage unit.

How We'll Reduce It

We will increase insulation, improve shade coverage, seal gaps and small openings.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from electricity derived from our brewing operation.

How We'll Reduce It

We will implement practices for the hot water heater (hot liquor tank) to reduce the amount of time the heating elements are on. This includes full shut offs on weekends and a timer that turns on the heating elements an hour before the brewer arrives.

Other Sustainability Notes

Born out of an old auto-body garage, Gravity Bound Brewing Company is styled after the beautiful, built-with-trash Earthships of Taos. We used thousands of old glass bottles, dozens of old car tires, dozens of old pallets and any other left-for-dead objects we could find to build out our space. Our facility is 100% electric and we generate about 20% of the energy we use from roof-top solar panels. We’re proud to support several organizations making our air cleaner and protecting our beautiful New Mexican lands through our 1% for the Planet membership. Certified Climate Neutral helps us share our passion for environmentally responsible business with our patrons.
