Packaging

Our Coconut Water is packed in a Tetra prisma carton which is recyclable. During recycling the carton is mixed with water and shred in a large blender to separate the materials (pulp, polymers and aluminium)

  • The paper pulp is dried and pressed into high quality fibre which is used for cartons, boxes, paper bags etc
  • Polymers/shredded plastic is melted, then cooled into pellets to be reused, such as used for wheelie bins
  • Polymers and aluminium are combined and pressed into lumbers which is used for garden furniture, desks, chairs etc.

The cartons are packed in recyclable card SRPs.

Are Tetra Paks biodegradable?

Tetra advise, “On average, Tetra Pak packages are made of 75% paper board and 21% polymers and 4% aluminium. Each material has its own function and purpose to protect the liquid food inside.

“Tetra Pak packages, which are primarily made of paper board which comes from a renewable resource, is biodegradable. However, other materials in Tetra Pak packages are not biodegradable, due to food protection and recycling reasons.”

So, the paper board element is biodegradable, whereas the remaining materials are not biodegradable, only recyclable as per the above.
