Our commitment

We always think about the broader impact of our operations on the environment and society, and we believe recycling is an investment in our future. When recycled beverage cartons are given a new life, we help protect natural resources, reduce climate impact and contribute to communities.

Yes, cartons are recyclable!

We're committed to sustainable carton recycling and work to promote and encourage more effective, widespread recycling programs. In 2009, Tetra Pak joined together with other carton manufactures in the U.S. to establish the Carton Council, an organization committed to limiting the number of cartons that become waste. Through this unified effort, we seek to build a sustainable infrastructure for carton recycling and continue growing carton recycling throughout the U.S.
