Juice Boxes


Put in Landfill

Juice boxes are lined with plastic, which is difficult to separate from the paper. The small amount of paper used to make the boxes is not worth recovering through recycling.

Juice Box with Straw

Put Straws in Trash

Juice box straws cannot be recycled because they would fall through the recycling equipment. Make sure to also throw straws in the trash.

Ways to Reduce

Orange Juice Container

Buy in Bulk

Buying individually sized juice boxes creates more waste than purchasing juice in bulk. Consider purchasing a reusable drink container that still feels like a traditional juice box.
