Along with its parent company Pernod Ricard, Corby is committed to be using only 100 per cent recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging within five years — and it is nearly there. More than 99 per cent of the primary containers used are recyclable.

Greener cups and fewer straws, Starbucks is announcing today two innovative updates as part of the company’s global environmental aspirations. Starbucks will pilot a ‘Greener’ to-go cup in Vancouver – one that we will be testing for recyclability and composability in that area.
