That the Parliament commends the Isle of Harris Distillery for the launch of its new eco-friendly initiative, The Refill Project; notes that this project allows for refills of its iconic Harris Gin bottle to be delivered to subscribers at their homes, allowing them to keep the bottle and reduce environmental costs in the manufacturing process; acknowledges that the project relies on aluminium containers, which can be indefinitely recycled without loss of quality of strength and require less fuel to transport due to their lighter weight, and congratulates the Isle of Harris Distillery on making environmental protection a key priority in its business structure.
