Have you noticed changes to packaging?


Mars Celebrations (large version)A lot of great work is going on to reduce the packaging of many well known products that you probably don’t know about. This is because improvements are often too subtle to notice.

Did you know?

  • Botanicals Essential gift set changed from a larger rigid box with a vacuum wrapping and sleeve to a reusable tin with a card sleeve. The weight has been drastically cut, all elements can now be easily recycled and the sleeve contains 80 per cent recycled material.
  • The Co-operative has removed the cardboard box from its Tomato Puree product. The tubes now stand upright, directly in the display packaging, which sits easily on the supermarket shelves. This has reduced packaging by 35 per cent.
  • Mars produced a plastic tub for Celebrations, to replace its original tin. It is now dishwasher, microwave and freezer proof. Reuse is encouraged through clear labelling on the tub.
