Dannon Yogurt'S New, Unethical Packaging



Dannon's plastic containers not only are not biodegradable, but now the company has added insult to injury. The new, rectangular shape for 6-ounce Light & Fit, used for some flavors in individual servings and the 4-packs, can't be stacked as can the round cups. This assures that the containers will not only remain intact in landfills forever, but they will take up far greater space than the round ones.

  • Check out to recycle yogurt cups and other household items otherwise not recyclable....

  • I'm not sure about Dannon, but some have also switched to #6 plastic. Just when I found out how to recycle #5 plastics. I just started making my own yogurt. It is not hard to do and the containers can be reused over and over. - by TREVUG
