Labatt USA Transitions to More Sustainable Packaging With Ring Carriers Made of Recycled Content

Labatt PackagingLabatt Blue and Labatt Blue Light recently rolled out new recycled and photodegradable green plastic carrier rings – Hi-Cone RingCycles™. They replace the plastic rings found on its six packs, which are imported from Canada. Starting immediately, Labatt Blue and Blue Light 16-ounce six-packs will contain the eco-friendly carriers and will be available throughout all U.S. markets where the products are sold.

The Hi-Cone RingCycles are reportedly made with more than 50 percent post-consumer recycled content and continue to be photodegradable, which means they break down when exposed to UV light. The rings are green and stamped with information on how to recycle to help communicate the new sustainable packaging.

“By switching to recycled content, we’re taking one small step toward improving our environmental footprint,” said Janine Schoos, brand director, Labatt. “This carrier ring will begin to break down when exposed to UV light. We value nature and understand our role in helping to reduce plastic waste and promote the health of our waterways and environment.”

“By encouraging recycling over waste, we can keep ring carriers out of landfills, and transform them into a valuable resource, helping us to close the loop on recycling,” said Elizabeth Sheaffer, director of global communications, Hi-Cone. “RingCycles are recyclable wherever #4 LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) or mixed plastics are collected. Where they are not, we have put a cost-free consumer recycling program in place. Through the RingRecycleMe™ program, consumers can collect and return used ring carriers to be recycled and repurposed to produce new ones.”
