Stonyfield’s YoBaby yogurt is housed in cups designed to offer higher performance and cost neutrality while delivering greater long-term sustainability. The form-fill-seal cups are manufactured with NatureWorks’ Ingeo, a plastic made from renewable plant materials. The package walls are thinner, which means less material is sourced. Breakage has also been reduced because of Ingeo’s strength, according to NatureWorks. Less energy is used on the packaging line, and less greenhouse gas is emitted in manufacturing, with the lighter package being cost neutral, the company reports. www.natureworksllc.com
