Flexo Sustainable : Fall 2014
• MOM Brands, which sells its products with as little packaging as possible. For example, the company sells cereal in a bag without a box around it, leading to as much as 75 percent less packaging waste. The company estimates it has saved 156 million pounds of paperboard since 2001 in this way Companies noted for their reuse and recycling programs are: • SC Johnson, which has developed refill packages for its trigger bottles. With a reported 320 million such bottles being pur- chased annually, the company hopes to reduce throw out rates as well as additional waste savings from the specially designed refills. These containers are made from the same containers as milk jugs and are comprised of 79 percent less plastic • The Hershey Company, which is in the home stretch of a seven year quest to eliminate 25 million pounds of packaging. The com- pany started in 2009 and has saved 14 million pounds to date. » The syrup bottle used by Hershey was redesigned to reduce the amount of material in its body and improve its cap. This saved 1.7 million pounds of high density polyethylene » Various reductions in corrugated cardboard used for shipping between facilities, along with utilizing bulk product shipping practices, saved an additional 1.5 million pounds FALL 2014 | Sustainable FLEXO 5
