Mayonnaise company says no to virgin plastics

Praise has announced that all of its mayonnaise and aioli jars and bottles will now be made using 100% Australian recycled plastic material. This change will prevent the use of 380 tonnes of virgin plastic each year — a quantity that Praise helpfully points out is equivalent to 30 double-decker buses’ worth of plastic staying out of the landfill.

The bottles and jars are produced in factories that are run on 100% renewable energy. With the bottles, jars and lids all being recyclable and composed of recycled material, Praise has effectively committed to a circular economy for its packaging in the future.

The mayonnaise and dressing company has announced the new packaging methodology alongside a partnership with Take 3 for the Sea, which is a community organisation that encourages people to pick up three pieces of garbage when they are leaving beaches they visit in order to reduce waste in the world’s oceans and seas.

“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,” said Mick Anderson, Head of Sustainability at Goodman Fielder, Praise’s parent company.

“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.”
