    Lucozade Sport dons new sustainable kit

    Lucozade Sport has unveiled a new kit with a reduced plastic sleeve on its bottles as part of its continued focus to become more sustainable, which is now being rolled out across the Lucozade Sport portfolio.

    The new-look sleeve follows Suntory Beverage & Food GB&I (SBF GB&I)’s £7.8M investment to make its packaging more sustainable, as part of the company’s Growing For Good vision that focuses on positive change for businesses, people and the planet.

    The reduced sleeve alone will save 101 tonnes of virgin plastic being produced annually and allows the bottle to be more easily identified and sorted into the correct waste stream, helping to ensure more Lucozade Sport bottles are turned back into bottles within the current UK recycling infrastructure.

    Lucozade Sport dons new sustainable kitThe Lucozade Sport sleeve redesign follows a major packaging update on the Ribena brand last year, including launching paper straws for Ribena cartons, as well as a move to 50 per cent transparent sleeves across the Lucozade Energy range to allow them to be recycled more easily back into bottles. Lucozade Sport’s new kit will help bring SBF GB&I closer to its goal of making all of its plastic packaging sustainable by 2030 and is also a key step toward the company’s ambition of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.

    “This is a key move for the Lucozade Sport brand and, more broadly, for SBF GB&I as part of our Growing For Good vision,” said Tom Bell, Head of Marketing for Lucozade Sport. “The new sleeve not only makes Lucozade Sport bottles easier to recycle back into bottles, but equally benefits retailers by being more eye-catching and striking on shelf, helping shoppers to find their favourite isotonic drink more easily.”
