Praise, produced by Goodman Fielder, has today announced that all Praise Mayo and Aioli bottles, jars, and caps, will be made using 100 per cent recycled plastic.
The move, an Australian-first in the category, will save 380 tonnes of virgin plastic every year.
Mick Anderson, Head of Sustainability, Goodman Fielder, is excited that their packaging is now 100 per cent Australian sourced post-consumer recycled plastic.
“Sustainable packaging is about more than simply recycling a product, it’s about building a circular economy by buying back products made from recycled materials. Now with every bottle or jar of Praise Mayo and Aioli that Aussies buy, they can help their packaging live on simply by recycling it.”
Praise also announced today they are partnering with Take 3 for the Sea, a community organisation who work at reducing reliance on virgin plastic and minimising its environmental impact.
Sarah Beard, CEO, Take 3 for the Sea, said plastic production from new, finite resources must decrease if we are able to protect our oceans and wildlife.
“If plastic is to be used, it must fit within the circular economy that is modelled on nature where there is no such thing as waste and is renewable and regenerative by design. Praise is leading the way in this area and we’re proud to be partnering with them in this major announcement that we hope is the start of a new movement towards 100% recycled plastic.”
