Fight Packaging Waste, Win Free Cereal for a Year


Wouldn’t it be great to have an act of eco-friendliness under your belt before you even do your hair each day? Sometimes making a greener choice can be as easy as picking out your breakfast cereal.

Choosing food that has less packaging means fewer materials were created to begin with, and therefore wasted once the product is opened or used.

Thanks to its box-free cereal packaging, Malt-O-Meal makes precycling at the grocery store an easy option. Its cereal uses 75 percent less consumer packaging than a cereal packaged with a cardboard box.

Using fewer materials for packaging saves energy, water, raw materials, fuel for shipping and more. From start to finish, a product that uses less packaging saves resources and contributes less waste.  To give their consumers the option to go from low-waste to no-waste, Malt-O-Meal teamed up with Terracycle to help encourage proper disposal of their cereal packaging.

See how this one small change to product packaging really adds up by taking the Malt-O-Meal and Earth911 trivia challenge: [Free] Food for Thought: Quick Quiz. Small Change. Big Prize.

Earth911 will post a new trivia question every day this week (December 10th -14th). By playing, you’ll not only have amped up your precycling prowess, but each question you answer correctly counts as an entry to win a $100 VISA gift card and a year supply of Malt-O-Meal cereal!
