Every day, waste finds its way into our environment

Litter of all kinds threatens biodiversity and the health of our communities. Each of us has a role to play in addressing this issue. There are simple things we can do to prevent used and consumed products from becoming litter. We hope you will join us in doing more to protect our natural environment by taking the step to recycle.

Let’s do our part!

Push the straw back in the pack or re-attach the cap

One simple way to reduce waste is to make sure everything ends up in the proper bin rather than on our roads, landscapes and waterways. For packages that have a straw or screw cap, push the straw back in the empty pack or re-attach the cap when you are finished with your drink before disposing. This step will ensure all parts of the package go through the proper disposal process together.
