Praise launches 100% recycled plastic bottles

Praise has announced that all Praise Mayo and Aioli bottles and jars will be made using 100% Australian recycled plastic, an “Australian-first” in the category. It’s a huge step forward for sustainable packaging saving 380 tonnes of virgin plastic every year.

Helping Aussies choose the most sustainable condiment, Praise Mayo and Aioli is also made at sites using 100% renewable electricity. The jars, bottles and caps are also 100% recyclable.

According to the brand, every year, 12.4 million bottles of Praise are consumed across Australia. “The 380 tonnes of virgin plastic saved is the equivalent of 30 double decker buses, plastic that could have ended up in landfill, on our streets or in our oceans. With the average plastic use per person in Australia twice the global average (100kg versus 50kg), it’s about time we all did our bit.”

Goodman Fielder Head of Sustainability Mick Anderson says: “It’s been a long journey to get us to this exciting point of 100% Australian sourced post-consumer recycled plastic and we are delighted that every Aussie can help do their bit for their environment. Sustainable packaging is about more than simply recycling a product, it’s about building a circular economy by buying back products made from recycled materials. Now with every bottle or jar of Praise Mayo and Aioli that Aussies buy, they can help their packaging live on simply by recycling it.”

Praise has also announced a new partnership with Take 3 for the Sea, a community organisation working on reducing reliance on virgin plastic, whilst also limiting its environmental impact.

Take 3 CEO Sarah Beard for the Sea says, “Plastic production from new, finite resources must decrease if we are to protect our oceans and wildlife. If plastic is to be used, it must fit within the circular economy that is modelled on nature where there is no such thing as waste and is renewable and regenerative by design. Praise is leading the way in this area and we’re proud to be partnering with them in this major announcement that we hope is the start of a new movement towards 100% recycled plastic.”
