Grocery Aisle: Cardboard Tray Removal



We removed cardboard trays from our Publix 24-pack bottled water, saving more than 13,000,000 trays—or 2,200,000 pounds of cardboard—per year. Our bottles have been reconfigured to fill a “nested” pack, giving us 16% more packs on each pallet. This means we move and store fewer pallets for the same amount of product.
