Ocean Spray Advances Sustainable Packaging Strategy With TerraCycle

TerraCycle Include USA Ocean Spray
Boston-based Ocean Spray Cranberries, the agricultural cooperative owned by more than 700 farmer families, has partnered with waste management company TerraCycle to launch a free recycling program that enables consumers to recycle Ocean Spray Craisins dried cranberries flexible plastic and snack packaging for an alternative use. Through the partnership, Ocean Spray is advancing its sustainable packaging strategy by helping to divert waste from landfills and extending the life of materials to reduce the overall environmental footprint of a product.
Participants now can send their Ocean Spray Craisins dried cranberry products that are in flexible plastic packaging to TerraCycle, where the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. As an added incentive, for each shipment of Ocean Spray Craisins dried cranberries packaging sent to TerraCycle through the Ocean Spray Recycling Program, participants earn points that can be donated to a non-profit, school or charitable organization of their choice.
