The new design which was unveiled at the start of February, is made from sugar cane and has a 22% lower carbon footprint than the existing ones.

Despite not being recyclable, the new cartons are the first in the world to feature the LEAF marque (Linking Environment and Farming) - an accreditation for sustainability.
