New Wrappers will Save 2,000 Trees
HERSHEY (AP) — The Hershey Co. says it is saving a small forest each year with its
new packaging design for Hershey's Miniatures.
packaging is hitting retail shelves this week.
wrappers have bolder graphic designs on the well-known miniature bars of
Hershey's Milk Chocolate and Special Dark, Krackel and Mr. Goodbar. But they're
also 0.050 grams lighter than the old wrappers.
sounds minuscule but Hershey spokeswoman Laura Renaud said it will equate to
271,800 pounds of wrappers saved over the course of a year — enough paper to
fill 11 tractor trailers. Renaud said that amounts to nearly 2,000 trees.
