Apple & Eve's
Respecting nature, keeping it simple, and bringing goodness to the table since 1975.
From the start, we've been a family company. We've stayed true to our roots by pouring wholesome values into our juice, introducing a 100% organic product before organic was a household term. Now we're continuing this legacy of goodness by working with Tetra Pak®, becoming stewards of the forests bearing the fruits that go into every Apple & Eve juice box.
Choosing the right materials
What Does FSC® Certification Mean?
100% of the paperboard used in Tetra Pak® cartons of Apple & Eve Juice comes from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certified forests and other controlled sources. An FSC-certified forest means that forest management helps look after the environment, animals, plants, and even the local people that live in, and around, forests. In FSC-certified forests, the wildlife and communities can prosper and trees are continually regenerated, locking in carbon as they grow.
How We Protect the Environment
The paperboard used in our cartons is a renewable material, meaning it will regrow naturally through replanting or natural regeneration. These same trees help absorb CO2 in the atmosphere, providing cleaner, healthier air globally.
Our primarily plant-based cartons help support the wellbeing of the world's forests. They’re made with materials sourced from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources where the trees keep on growing. By purchasing FSC® certified Tetra Pak® cartons, you help protect the world's forests for generations to come.
Our packaging is made of more than 70% renewable materials, and it’s recyclable. These cartons are also transported flat, conserving space and reducing emissions.
We maintain our commitment to the environment by keeping our packages recyclable, allowing them to live on as tissue paper, other paper-based products, building materials, or even furniture.
How Are Cartons Recycled?
After emptying your carton of Apple & Eve juice and placing it in the recycling bin, it’ll be taken with other recyclables to a materials recovery facility (MRF). There, cartons will follow one of two paths to be recycled. From the MRF, some cartons go to a papermill, where they are broken down using a machine called a hydrapulper. Once separated in the machine, the pulp can be used in products like tissue and toweling or printing and writing paper, while the aluminum and plastic can be sent on and recycled into new products. In the second recycling path, cartons are sent to a facility where the entire carton is shredded into small pieces and then pressed together to create green building materials!
How to Recycle Bottles and Juice Boxes?
You can take matters into your own hands by recycling the Apple & Eve products you enjoy. Before you recycle an Apple & Eve bottle or juice box, screw the cap back onto the bottle and push the straw back into the box to help reduce litter.
All packages can be recycled in the same way.
All packages use different materials and must be recycled accordingly.
You must separately dispose of the caps and straws included with Apple & Eve packaging.
When recycling, attach the cap to the bottle and push the straw into the juice box. This helps ensure they are collected together and don’t end up as litter.
THE FUTURE OF RECYCLING
Why Should You Care?
Compared to 2009, when only 24 states and 20 million households had access to carton recycling, there’s been a 350% increase in access. Today, 49 states, 73.2 million households, and 10,836 schools have carton recycling access. Recycling is just one piece of the puzzle in a more sustainable future, but allowing every family to participate is critical to making a global impact.
