The packaging we use is carefully designed to maintain the freshness and quality of our products.

It is not a matter of plastic or plastic-free, but which option will guarantee the required performance with the lowest environmental impact.

Do you need to remove the paper label from the box before recycling?

No, the paper labels do not need to be removed as it does not interfere with the recyclability of the plastic.

Why do you communicate to recycle separate to glass and why do you need to do this?

Due to the small size of the Tic Tac boxes it should be recycled separate to glass due to the process of some UK recycling facilities. You can check what you can recycle at home here: https://www.gov.uk/recycling-collections

Check locally: why we specify to check locally on the labels before recycling

We encourage our consumers to check their local authorities on how they can recycle at home. You can find out more about what your local authorities accept here: https://www.gov.uk/recycling-collections
