PACK IT IN!

SUSTAINABILITY

Did you know that the unnecessary paper used on tea sleeves could circle the world four times? That’s a lot of wasted paper, and something we’re trying to help change.

Sustainability Lipton

When you sip your favorite cup of Lipton® tea, we want you to feel happy knowing you’ve done your bit for the planet, too. These days, what concerns many people is the excessive use of packaging surrounding a lot of our everyday products. It’s why at Lipton®, we are constantly working to maintain the high quality of our teas – while minimizing the amount of packaging we use. 

Every step counts

All this makes sense in terms of economic sustainability, too. It’s the goal of our parent company (Unilever) to reduce the weight of its packaging by a third, by 20201. It has been tracking its waste footprint since 2010. And in line with this, our driving principle is to reduce, reuse and recycle where we can. It’s a big task. Yet one which Lipton® are also committed to being part of - whether that’s in recycling improvements, packaging innovations or reducing the weight of the materials we use.

We’re dedicated to the environment in other ways too. For starters, we’ve planted more than 1.3 million trees to fight deforestation. So, step by step, little by little, we are trying to help create a cleaner, greener planet and a sustainable lifestyle for our customers.
