Plant based means that all of the materials used the make the cartons come from fully sustainable and renewable plant sources.
Say hello to our brand new, plant based cartons
In a first for the British Isles, we're replacing our cartons with a fully sustainable and renewable plant based carton.
During growth of the materials and the manufacturing process each 1 litre carton removes 21g of CO2 from the environment. As well as this we can ship over 9 times the amount of flat packed cartons to the Island as polybottles – saving even more carbon
You'll see our cartons appearing in stores and on your doorstep from the 10th September.
The body of the carton is made from board only obtained from FSC Certified forests and the lining and cap is made from sugar cane, grown on degraded pastures in Brazil
The manufacturing of single-use plastic bottles emits 160kg of CO2 per 1000 litres of liquid container
The manufacturing of plant based cartons actually removes CO2 from the environment – 2.1kg per 1000 litres of liquid container
162kg less CO2 in the atmosphere for every 1000 cartons
We can transport around 70,000 empty polybottles to the Island on one 40ft trailer. A similar figure will apply to filled ploybottles (imported milk to the Island) and glass bottles
We can fit 672,000 flat packed cartons into the same trailer space – really helping to reduce our carbon footprint and strengthening our eco credentials!
Carbon emission reduced by 90%*
Single-use plastic is made from oil, a non-renewable resource. It also takes centuries to bio-degrade – every piece of plastic ever made still exists today.
These award-winning, new cartons from Tetra Pak are made from sugarcane and paperboard, grown and managed sustainably. By using them we reduce our reliance on single-use plastic.
8million+ tons of plastic dumped in our oceans every year
Same great product, two new sizes
As well as introducing the new plant based carton, we are also offering two new sizes a 500ml and a 1 litre carton. We have priced these new packs so that the 1 litre carton offers the best value Manx milk on the market.
