Hard freeze pop SLIQ Spirited Ice is partnering with TerraCycle to make its packaging nationally recyclable in the United States.
SLIQ is a subsidiary of West Chicago, Ill.-based food company Jel Sert, and its vodka, agave and rum hard freezer pops are available at select retailers nationwide, including Walmart.
Upon collection, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be used to make new recycled products.
“As we roll out SLIQ Spirited Ice nationwide, it has been a priority for us to find a sustainable solution that supports the brand’s convenience and ethos,” said Gavin Wegner, SLIQ’s senior brand manager.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with TerraCycle to create sustainable and recyclable products that consumers can send in free of charge in exchange for rewards to charities of their choice,” Wegner said.
