Our Packaging and How to Recycle It

Food packaging can be a tricky one when it comes to sustainability and the environment, and we are continually looking for ways to improve our packaging.




It's easy to recycle Molly Woppy packaging and it’s important that we all do our part - creating good recycling habits and making sure you are recycling into the correct recycling system is a good way to start.

  • When you have finished devouring our delicious cookies you can flatten the cardboard box and pop it straight into your kerbside recycling.
  • All Molly Woppy Plastic is Grade 5 – simply shake out the crumbs and put it into your soft plastic recycling bins at your local supermarket.



Our Artisan and Pantry Pack boxes are printed at a ToitU net carbonzero printer using vegetable-based inks and sustainably sourced card. Sustainability is their default setting, so they always look for the lowest impact solution to every printing job.

Food waste is one of the biggest environmental issues we face across the planet, and we are conscious of not wasting one little crumb! It's why we use Grade 5 plastic for all of our plastic packaging – it’s one of the best options we have right now to keep our cookies fresh and avoid unnecessary food waste.

Grade 5 plastic is one of the most versatile plastics available – if you must use plastic, then this is the one to use. It’s easily recyclable so reduces the waste that’s sent to landfill and it’s able to be remade into many products, containers and building materials. Best of all, lots of kiwi businesses are jumping on board and creating initiatives to make it easier to recycle - you’ll find most supermarkets now have a soft plastics recycling bin making it as simple as giving it a quick clean and popping it in the bin when you do your weekly shopping.
