How2Recycle welcomes Wholesome! as newest member

Wholesome!, a Fair Trade Certified, Organic, and Non-GMO Project Verified sweeteners company, is the latest addition to the How2Recycle program.

Wholesome! supplies organic sugars, agave, honeys, molasses and stevia to grocery stores and food service operations around the U.S. and Canada and also sells their sweeteners as bulk ingredients.

“We can’t wait to see the How2Recycle label on Wholesome! products this year,” says Kelly Cramer, Project Manager at Sustainable Packaging Coalition. “As a new member of How2Recycle, Wholesome! is demonstrating commitment and leadership when it comes to communicating accurate recycling instructions on their packaging.”

Wholesome! will use the label across its entire U.S. product line to help customers recycle their product packaging. The first wave of products with the label will be the company’s standup organic sugar pouches, made from recyclable PE, followed by its additional products over the next year.

“Environmental responsibility is one of our company’s core values and recycling plays a crucial role in supporting that, said Lola Soyebo Harris, new product development manager at Wholesome!. “We want to do our part to build awareness about recycling, and How2Recycle has simplified that process and made it easier for our customers.”
