Nestlé is the newest member of the How2Recycle Label Program. Selected Nestlé USA and Purina® brands will use the How2Recycle label to help communicate to the public how to recycle their packaging.
The How2Recycle label is a project of GreenBlue’s Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), developed to provide clear and concise on-package recyclability information and keep recoverable materials out of landfills. The brands join over 40 How2Recycle member companies using the label on packaging.
“Nestlé’s adoption of the How2Recycle Label substantiates our commitment to contribute to initiatives to recover used packaging, and increase the use of recycled materials where there is an environmental benefit, to improve the environmental footprint of our products,” said David Strauss, Head of Packaging, Nestlé USA.
“The How2Recycle labels are the next step in our partnership with consumers and communities to help give our packaging materials a second, recycled life where possible,” said Diane Herndon, Manager, Sustainability, Nestlé Purina PetCare Company.
The companies plan to phase-in the How2Recycle label onto many of their products in the upcoming months.
“We are very excited to welcome Nestlé to the How2Recycle Label Program” says Project Manager Danielle Peacock. “We look forward to helping their customers understand how to recycle their many products.”
The How2Recycle Label is a project of GreenBlue’s Sustainable Packaging Coalition®, a membership-based group that brings together business, educational institutions, and government agencies to collectively broaden the understanding of packaging sustainability and develop meaningful improvements for packaging solutions. GreenBlue® is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to the sustainable use of materials in society. For more information follow us on Twitter @How2Recycle or go to our website at How2Recycle.info.
