We’re actively seeking sustainable solutions to UP&GO’s straw, which has already been light-weighted by 15%.


PET Bottles

Our UP&GO plastic bottles are made of PET plastic, a strong and lightweight plastic widely used for food and beverages. You can recycle them through most kerbside recycling systems. You can also recycle the ‘scrunchable’ plastic sleeves through the NZ Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme.

We do expect to see an industry funded national recycling solution for lids, caps and bottle tops – stay tuned!

UP&GO multi-pack plastic wrap

We’re investigating alternative packaging methods to help reduce or eliminate the use of plastic wrap on our UP&GO 3 and 6 packs, working closely with our packaging suppliers, distributors and retailers. In the meantime, you can recycle this soft plastic through the NZ Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme.  Want to know more?
