Opening a Tetra Pak carton and the plastic ring breaking off is frustrating.
I remember a time when we used to open our milk and juice containers without the aid of a plastic
spout. The functionality was the same, yet we were contributing less to the global plastic waste crisis. Today, I am calling for a return to this simpler, more environmentally friendly method.
Tetra Pak containers with plastic caps contribute significantly to environmental pollution. According to Earth Day Network, 91% of all plastic is not recycled and ends up as litter in our environment or in landfills where it takes hundreds of years to decompose (Earth Day Network). This unnecessary addition of a plastic cap on Tetra Paks only exacerbates this problem.
I believe that by removing these caps from their packaging design, Tetra Pak can play an important role in reducing global plastic waste. This small change could have significant impacts on our environment and would be one step closer towards achieving sustainability goals.
Let's urge Tetra Pak to reconsider their packaging design and eliminate the use of these unnecessary plastic caps. Please sign this petition if you too want a cleaner, healthier planet for future generations!
