RESPONSIBLE PACKAGING

Responsible Packaging icon

We continuously strive to reduce packaging waste, using more recyclable and recycled materials.

  • Our clear Listerine bottles are made of the most recycled plastic material in the world, and our clear PET bottles are recyclable in most markets.
  • To help recycle caps, keep them ON the bottle when recycling to avoid having them end up in the environment.
  • We plan to begin launching packaging with post-consumer plastic (PCR) in 2022 or 2023 with an aspiration to get to 100% by 2030.
  • Our LISTERINE® Concentrate Refills uses 60% less plastic than the 500mL bottle. Yet another step towards our goal of achieving healthier mouths on a healthier planet.

CHOICEFUL INGREDIENTS
