Delicious is in our name…
But our mindful approach goes beyond delicious ingredients. We believe in making thoughtful choices for our packaging too.
That’s why our goal is to make all of our packaging recyclable and made with recycled content by 2025. When we do have to use new materials, we’ll use materials from renewable resources (like paper and sugar cane). In the meantime, we’re striving to use renewable and recyclable resources whenever we can.
Here’s more about our current efforts.
This bottle isn’t just pretty—it’s pretty special. It’s plant-based, just like the organic almondmilk and cashewmilk inside. It’s made from renewable sugarcane and at least 80% plants.* Plus, it’s recyclable!†
Not only that, but the sugarcane plants used to make the bottle help reduce atmospheric carbon by capturing and storing it. That means the plant-based bottle helps reduce net CO2 levels.1
In the future, we plan to expand the use of our plant-based bottle into new product categories.
*Sugarcane is a fast-growing, renewable resource. >80% Biobased Verified by ASTM D6866
†Seal not recyclable

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED CARDBOARD
When we say our products are artfully crafted, we’re talking about more than taste. We use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified cardboard in all of our half gallon and shelf-stable beverage and creamer packages.
The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent nonprofit organization that promotes environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests. FSC conserves wildlife habitat, protects clean water and respects the rights of Native people and local communities on 170 million acres of forestland in the US and Canada.

Packages made with post-consumer recycled materials rely on fewer new materials. That means fewer forests need to be cut down to make packages. And, using recycled materials increases demand, which helps support the recycling market.
Our frozen dessert boxes and the boxes we use to ship to retailers are made with recycled paperboard. Our goal is to transition all of our frozen dessert packaging to recycled paperboard, including our pints, by 2025.
Did you know you can help us with our sustainability efforts?
The straws that come with our shelf-stable packaging aren’t recyclable unless they go inside our packaging. Because of their size and shape, the straws often fall into the cracks of the recycling machinery, which isn’t built to accommodate the straws.
We’re working on creating a sustainable alternative to the plastic straw. Until then, it’s easy to dispose of our straws by pushing them inside the container once you’re done drinking from it.
Voila! Now the entire carton can go in the recycling bin.
