Our educational program in schools throughout Japan helps to spread information about carton recycling in a fun, interactive way. It is also helping to increase the number of cartons people recycle.

Instead of seeing this as a hindrance, at Tetra Pak, we saw it as an opportunity to spread the message about the recyclability of our cartons and also to educate people about how to recycle.
