Eco-Packaging: The Latest from YoBaby

It’s almost five o’clock, but before we head out for a weekend of apple picking and haunted hayrides, we wanted to make sure we left you with a little food for thought to tide you over until Monday.

Earlier this week, Stonyfield Farm, the organic yogurt manufacturer that whips up YoBaby, YoToddler, and YoKids, became the most recent company to hop on the sustainable-packaging bandwagon when it debuted the first yogurt cup made from plant-based plastic.

“Moms trust us to do the right thing and that’s something we take very seriously,” explained Gary Hirshberg, the company’s president and CE-Yo.” We’ve worked hard to produce a plant-based cup that’s an easy way for moms to ‘pay it forward’ to their kids.”

The cups look and feel just like the old ones (unlike attempts from Sun Chips, whose noisy biodegradable bag has been pulled from shelves), cut carbon emissions by 48 percent, and – the best part – are available in multipacks without any price increase.

We want to know what you think about sustainable packaging: Do products like these inspire the way you shop, or are they just another gimmick? Let us know in the comments!

    WOW!! that I think is wonderful!! I love the environment and try to do my part in saving it by recycling and the like. I have thought about not buying anything with plastic but that is practically impossible and when I see big companies take responsibility like this its just amazing to me coz it seems now a days profit is above all even after all we know that is happening to our planet with the slightest of the moves we make. Well, at least I wont be feeling guilty picking up one thing of the shelf “yo baby”. Thanks, I really appreciate your efforts towards the right thing.

    Stackable boxes really are a must when moving house, irrespective of self-drive van hire or removal company lorry. Sturdy green, recyclable boxes that can be reused time and again are the best option for frequent house moves as well as for long-term storage – regardless of where the home move happens. There is nothing more frustrating than having to reload several times, because the awkward way in which things are packed prevent a completely loaded van making one tour and one tour only.
