With so many ways to enjoy So Good, more and more New Zealanders are turning to our great tasting dairy free milks for both health and environmental reasons. Not only is So Good Lighter, Brighter and Better, our packaging is too.
CartonsThe long-life cartons we use for our beverages have the lowest carbon footprint of the most commonly used packaging in New Zealand and Australia, according to a recent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). Here’s why:
saveBOARD is a new venture backed by Tetra Pak, Freightways and Closed Loop and has a newly built recycling facility in Hamilton, processing beverage cartons, coffee cups and soft plastics into building materials to replace plywood, particle board and plaster board. This is creating a local circular economy for these beverage containers and limit valuable resources going to landfill.
saveBoard is currently working with local government and community groups to develop drop off points around the country for used beverage cartons and their ultimate goal is for used beverage cartons to be collected as part of kerbside recycling for all New Zealanders.
Our So Good plastic bottles are made of PET plastic, a strong and lightweight plastic widely used for food and beverages. They’re accepted in some kerbside recycling systems.
We produce So Good in opaque PET plastic bottles, so you experience its optimal nutrition and taste quality. Opaque PET can be recycled into asphalts for roads, decking materials, furniture, and other extruded plastic items.
You can also recycle the ‘scrunchable’ plastic sleeves through the NZ Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme.
* Check with your local council whether the lids should be on or off when recycling jars and bottles, as requirements may differ between councils.
