Interest in reusable packaging swells: Page 5 of 5

1. Loop and big brands boldly reinvent waste-free packaging

No surprise that the biggest packaging news of the year, which we posted on Jan. 24, hits our #1 spot for the month of February.

Will Loop be the milkman model for the future? The initiative is a new ecommerce and retail shopping platform where all the products are sold in reusable, recyclable packages—Häagen-Dazs ice cream in a stainless steel pint, Tropicana orange juice in glass bottles, Pantene shampoo in aluminum cylinders.

Our extensive coverage of the news includes a 43-minute video of an interview with Loop inventor Tom Szaky, CEO of TerraCycle, along with a Q&A from the TerraCycle team that gives all the pertinent details, such as:

• How Loop was developed and why;

• What the root causes of waste are;

• How Loop challenges the idea of who “owns” product packaging—from consumer back to the brand;

• What Loop’s immediate growth plans are.

If you haven’t heard about Loop yet, click on the headline above to hear about this audacious venture.

Too bad Nestlé steals water and ruins aquifers; kinda takes away from these other initiatives.
