Email to Kellogg on January 21, 2011

February 7, 2011

An email I sent to Kellogg on January 21, 2011:

This e-mail is intended as a response to a mailed letter I received from (Name) at Consumer Affairs.

I was a bit confused by your response, because I was not inquiring or questioning Kellogg’s use of pre-consumer waste in my original letter. I was more interested in how Kellogg plans to make their packaging more sustainable. You said in your response that “materials we use are 100% waste, both pre- and post- consumer.”

If Kellogg knows its materials are 100% waste, do they plan on changing their packaging to be more environmentally friendly? 

Kellogg is not being proactive and redesigning their products by partnering with Terracycle. A partnership with Terracycle just temporarily displaces the waste (by turning used food bags into non-robust products like clipboards). Those clipboards made from packaging are going to break and end up in a landfill as well.

Thank you for your time,
