Ocean Spray and TerraCycle partner on sustainable packaging and recycling program

TerraCycle Include USA Loop Ocean Spray
Ocean Spray Cranberries has revealed its latest partnership with waste management company TerraCycle to enable consumers to downcycle Ocean Spray’s flexible plastic and snack packaging into park benches and picnic tables. Through the partnership, Ocean Spray is advancing its sustainable packaging strategy by diverting waste from landfills and extending the life of materials to reduce the overall environmental footprint. “The future of sustainable packaging has such potential to make a meaningful, positive environmental impact,” an Ocean Spray spokesperson tells FoodIngredientsFirst. “Through a multi-year sustainability roadmap, the companies will focus on waste reduction, including reducing beverage and food packaging waste and replacing wax-lined paper cups with compostable or durable PepsiCo products,” according to a Vail news release. Pepsi’s individual sustainability targets include making all packaging recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable by 2025.
