Making Packaging Improvements

We explored whether our bag-in-box packaging (such as our Cheddar Bunny box) has less environmental impact than a stand up, multi-layer plastic bag (with no box). It turns out that the non-recyclable, stand up pouch has lower lifecycle impacts across almost all categories and phases of production than our traditional packaging, mostly because the stand-up pouch is lighter. While we aspire to use packaging that is both lightweight AND recyclable, we also think it’s important to use data to drive the decisions that we make, and to consider all available options. We recognize that sometimes we may not meet all of our criteria right away, but we can still get closer to zero waste. We’ve made some good improvements to our packaging, but we know there is more to do. Stay tuned to learn more about our efforts to make our packaging more sustainable.
