A Greener Choice: Switching from Plastic Bottles to Cartons

We all know we should do our part to reduce our carbon footprint and live an eco-friendlier lifestyle. But sometimes, it's hard to know where to start. If you're looking for an easy way to make a difference, one small change you can make is switching from plastic bottles to cartons. You may not realise it, but those plastic bottles come with a hefty carbon footprint. And while cartons may not be perfect, they have a much lower carbon footprint than plastic bottles. Here's a breakdown of the carbon footprints of both tetra top cartons and plastic bottles so you can make the best choice for yourself and the planet.

Tetra Top Cartons vs Plastic Bottles: A Breakdown of the Carbon Footprints

Plastic bottles are made from PET (polyethene terephthalate), which is derived from oil or gas. On the other hand, Tetra top cartons use biopolymer which is derived from sugar cane. And while both products require additional resources for packaging and transportation, cartons use significantly fewer resources in their production.

When it comes to the carbon footprint of each, tetra top cartons have a significantly lower impact. The Carbon Trust supports that the 500 ml Tetra Top carton produces 24g of carbon, we can compare this to a standard plastic bottle being over 100g!

There is a very similar message when looking at the water used in each drink produced between the packaging. It is estimated that the plastic bottle requires 2 to 4 times as much water as the equivalent carton.

Considering all these factors, it's clear that tetra top cartons are the superior choice for reducing your carbon footprint. And reducing your carbon footprint is important not just for the planet but also for our health. Climate change is real, and it's happening right now. So any small change we can make to reduce our impact is worth it.
