At Tetra Pak, we believe recycling is an obligation, not a choice. Currently 89 per cent of Australians and 33 per cent of New Zealanders can put our cartons in their kerbside recycling. We work with a number of organisations in Australia to promote and encourage recycling of Tetra Pak cartons.
Planet Ark works to show people and businesses the many ways they can reduce their day to day impact on the environment – at home, at work and in the community. Tetra Pak is committed, both in Australia and globally, to raising consumer awareness about the benefits of recycling and the importance of environmentally-sound and sustainable practices. We have a long-standing partnership with Planet Ark, including support for their Recycling Near You website.
Launched for the Rugby World Cup in 2011, LoveNZ provides recycling bins and recycling options at public places and major events throughout New Zealand. This includes office buildings, sports grounds, parks, shopping centres and garage forecourts across New Zealand. Tetra Pak is a supporter of LoveNZ and a founding member of the Public Place Recycling Scheme.
For more than 20 years, Trees for Canterbury has been working to meet the Green Effect Trust’s objectives of Employ, Educate, Regenerate. They are protecting and regenerating the very little native bush left in the Canterbury region on New Zealand’s South Island while at the same time supporting the community by providing employment opportunities for the unemployed and people with disabilities, as well as environmental education.
Tetra Pak has supported Trees for Survival since 2000. Trees for Survival is a charitable organisation engaged in promoting school children growing and planting native trees to help reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, enhance biodiversity and to beautify our environment. In doing so, children learn key plant care techniques and experience the enjoyment to be gained from caring for and growing plants. They also gain an appreciation of the value of our native flora and the key role plants play in supporting ecosystems.
