Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Marietta offers a wide variety of packaging options, including packaging designs that reduce waste and protect the environment. We are continually evaluating and optimizing our package designs to the minimal package weight for the distribution system.

Marietta’s primary sustainability goal has been to reduce the amount of packaging… As we develop new packages, we have optimized our package designs to have minimal package weight for the distribution system. We also have the ability to use PCR (post-consumer recycled material) in our bottles.
