Carton today – pizza box tomorrow

Tetra Pak cartons mainly consist of paper from wood fibers. Thanks to an effective recycling loop, one single piece of carton can have several lives. The fibers can actually be recycled up to 25 times before they lose their strength. So, a beverage carton could really become a cereal box, a shoebox, or an egg tray once it has been recycled. Or as we see it – been brought back to life.

What do you see when you see carton? 

So many of the products we use in everyday life are based on nature’s own renewable materials that can be recycled and transformed into new products. Watch this process be brought to life in our films.

Recycling: How it works

Many of us know that recycling is a great way to help keep our planet happy and healthy in the long run. But not everyone knows what happens to cartons once they've been recycled. We have compiled information for a more in-depth understanding of different materials and the process behind recycling.

 

Join our family 

Oatly, Tine Iskaffe, Biola and Marli Juissi are among those who have chosen a Tetra Pak packaging solution. For a period of time, they even let us borrow their packaging design to highlight the sustainable benefits of carton.

Recycling how and where

Not everyone knows that used food and beverage cartons are recyclable. Probably because collection and recycling are handled differently from country to country.

If you want to give your carton another life, contact your local municipal to find out how they collect waste in your area.
