We all need to make a positive contribution to the health of our planet. Which is why we want to make it easier for everyone to put sustainability first, whenever and wherever possible. That’s where our packaging comes in. Next time you’re faced with a choice, you know what to do: go carton.
There’s a simple way to reduce your plastic consumption. Our cartons are made from mostly paperboard, sourced from trees in responsibly managed forests. Unlike packaging material that depends solely on fossil fuel sources, plant-based materials are replenished naturally over time, which can minimise your impact on climate change.
On average, Tetra Pak cartons contain 71% paperboard. Packages made from renewable materials are essential for preserving the environment for future generations. We’re choosing a renewable approach to packaging, so you can too.
All our cartons are recyclable and can be made into new products. By keeping materials in use for longer, we can reduce waste and limit our environmental impact. It’s how we can achieve a healthier, cleaner planet and promote a circular economy.
Our cartons can be recycled in nine out of ten UK local authorities. To recycle them, you should rinse them out and then flatten them, before putting them into recycling bins or with other recyclables for collection. You do not need to remove the plastic cap as this is removed during the recycling process.
