Natural Delights™ Launches 100 Percent Recycled New Packaging
YUMA, AZ - As packaging that can be or has been recycled continues to give providers a leg up in consumer loyalty, Natural Delights has announced the launch of packs that are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic.
“Our new green packaging for tub containers will help to keep 800 tons of plastic out of landfills and oceans, reducing water consumption by 34 million gallons and eliminating 1,200 tons of CO2 emissions,” said David Baxter, Brand Manager.
This is not the only area in which the company is going green, Baxter added.
"In addition to our plastic packaging, we are converting most of our display materials to kraft material, which is certified by the sustainable forestry initiative. This change increases the amount of recycled material used by 50 percent and improves the recycle-ability of the box,” he said.
Natural Delights’ new green packaging will apply to all tub containers and roll into stores this month, according to a press release. The company has made significant investments in converting its date packaging to be among the most sustainable options on the market for the category.
“We continue to invest in packaging sustainability in order to do what is best for our business, consumers, and the environment," Baxter concluded.
The date provider offers a line of Whole, Pitted, Organic, and Pitted Organic Medjool Dates; Premium Chopped Medjool Dates; and Medjool Date Rolls with flavors like coconut, almond, and cacao with pecans. As more and more categories look to answer the call for sustainable options in packaging, AndNowUKnow will report on the latest.
