Greener Kit Kat in your vending machine
Kit Kat is synonymous with vending machines. You’re unlikely to find a vending machine that doesn’t offer you a Kit Kat as a choice. But did you know that soon that Kit Kat will be greener and better for the environment than its predecessors?
Nestle the makers of Kit Kat and Quality Street have made the decision to change their wrappers to a greener material. The confectionary giant will be wrapping Kit Kats with plastic that is 80 per cent recycled.
Replacing the cellulose foil Quality Street wrappers on nine of the eleven varieties will mean billions fewer bits of plastic in its supply chain. Nestle said that, unlike cellulose, the new wrappers break down easily and are accepted in household recycling.
