Gerber, the early childhood nutrition leader in the U.S., has partnered with international recycling company TerraCycle to help give hard-to-recycle baby food packaging a new life. The program is free of charge for consumers and rolled out on a national scale.
Parents simply sign up on the Gerber Recycling Program page and mail in packaging that is not municipally recyclable using a prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
The partnership is rooted in Gerber and TerraCycle’s shared values around eliminating waste and supports the recovery of hard-to-recycle baby food packaging nationwide. It is one of many steps toward Nestlé’s goal to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.
