Tetra Pak is committed to sustainable carton recycling, promoting and encouraging more effective widespread recycling programs in the U.S. In 2009, Tetra Pak joined together with other carton manufactures to establish the Carton Council, an organization committed to delivering long-term collaborative solutions that divert valuable cartons from the landfill. Through this unified effort, the Carton Council seeks to build a sustainable infrastructure for carton recycling and works to continue growing carton recycling throughout the U.S.
