  • Tetra Pak® cartons are already lightweight, recyclable and made mainly from renewable resources, like wood fiber from well managed forests where trees keep on growing. But we’re committed to reducing the impact of our packages even further by using plant-based plastic made from sugarcane.

    Watch to find out how sugarcane becomes plant-based plastic.

    Good job on integrated plant-based plastics to your products! If you want to dig deeper in the matter, we made a series to give the full picture of the plastic problem, and present plant-based alternatives to conventional plastics. Check out Series 2 if you want to find out the difference between compostable and biodegradable, or why recycling isn't the silver bullet solution to our plastic problem!

    The presentation is very attractive. Now i have a question, how can you get bioplastic from vegetable fibers?

    The best part of Brazilian sugar cane is that it's produced by a hyper exploited workforce making it cheaper than American sugar cane. Otherwise I don't know why it's any better than good ol' Louisiana sugar cane.

    Does it biodegrade?

    @Tetra Pak USA & Canada: Does your plastic made out of sugarcane degrade in the ocean? And if so, how long does it take to degrade completely? and also if it degrades, is it harmful to the ocean habitat or not?

    You just forgot to explain why does sugar cane plastic cost 5 times more then from pertolium when it is made compleately from waste.

    So still packing with plastic that wont decompose => nothing solved when it comes to our plastic problem. Also, you guys say your packaging is recyclable, but the many different layers and materials make it so its not recycled by most places.

    This video is very cleaver at making you think its 100% plant based but its not!

    They should add it in INDIA

    This concept is quite misleading. Yes it is bio-based. But the the main question here is whether it is biodegradable or not?
