Heineken UK is making a move to help the planet with its beer packaging. The Dutch company is eliminating plastic rings and plastic shrink wrap from its full line of beer and cider sold in multi-pack cans, including Foster’s and Kronenbourg.
Their new 100% plastic-free topper will be made using sustainably sourced cardboard and will remove 517 tons of plastic a year from the supply chain. Plus, the new topper is 100% recyclable and compostable, and shoppers will appreciate that it’s easy to grip. And once the cardboard packaging is fully in place, Heineken says only 2% of its packaging will be made of plastic.
