At AtkinsTM we’ve made a commitment to help create a more sustainable future, and we stood by that commitment when choosing packaging for the Atkins line of ready to drink shakes. We weighed the impact of each option – from the beginning to the end of its life cycle – and concluded that recyclable TetraPak® cartons were the right choice for our sustainability efforts.
Teamed with TetraPak, we recently made the leap to primarily paper-based cartons and caps made with plastics derived from plants – further strengthening our commitment to creating a more sustainable future. Plant based resources like these can be replenished over time and enable a move away from fossil fuel-based materials, which helps reduce this package’s carbon footprint. In fact, this new packaging reduces the carbon footprint of each unit by 17% when compared to previously used materials.
