Our UP&GO packaging provides the ultimate convenience, delivering the right type of energy when and where you need it. We’re actively seeking sustainable solutions to improve the recyclability of our packaging, helping you to recycle on the go. Cartons
The long-life cartons we use have the lowest carbon footprint of the most common packaging types
, according to a recent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) [Link to Tile 6c: Long-life cartons have lowest carbon footprint].
Here’s why: [Infographic below]

Our team is on the case, exploring alternative options to plastic straws. While we try to find a solution that keeps UP&GO safe, convenient and easy to use, you can minimise the environmental impact of the straw by pushing it back inside the empty pack
and recycling them together. PET Bottles
You can recycle our plastic PET bottles through most kerbside recycling systems. You can also recycle the caps if they’re still attached to the bottle. It’s best to flatten or crush the bottles so they take up less space for transport and baling. Plastic Wrap
We’re investigating alternative packaging methods to help reduce or eliminate the use of plastic wrap on our UP&GO 3 and 6 packs, working closely with our packaging suppliers, distributors and retailers. In the meantime, you can recycle this soft plastic through REDcycle (AU) or Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme (NZ).
