Milk for Change Campaign
Tetra Pak South Africa in partnership with Feed SA recently held a campaign called Milk for Change to fight undernourishment among South Africa’s larger communities and educate consumers about nutritional benefits of long life milk. Recycling education and collection of empty milk cartons is part of the campaign. Our recycling partner, Mpact has been collecting the empty cartons for recycling at its paper mill in Springs, South Africa.
Forest for All Forever
In partnership with FSC Southern Africa, Tetra Pak supports efforts to educate consumers about responsible forestry. Educational activities are often organized in collaboration with local retailers in this regard.
Collectors Education Campaign
In partnership with Mpact, Tetra Pak South Africa is working on reaching out to waste pickers/hawkers to educate them about collecting Used Beverage Cartons (UBCs) for recycling. Currently most waste pickers do not pick UBCs because they are not aware of the buyers and other commercial opportunities related to UBC recycling.
Sustainable products (FSC)
Globally we aim to offer packages based 100% on renewable materials and secure 100% Forest Stewardship Council-certified paperboard. Since the introduction of the world’s first FSC-labelled liquid food cartons in the UK in 2007, Tetra Pak in South Africa has worked with suppliers, customers, consumers and NGOs to raise awareness of the importance of ensuring responsible forest management and the value of using renewable materials, like wood. Today, FSC-labelled Tetra Pak packages are available across South Africa.
