A Florida organic citrus grower-shipper is packing fruit in recycled boxes.

Uncle Matt's Organic Inc., Clermont, Fla., is shipping all of its products, fresh fruit and bottled juices, in 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard boxes.

The change comes after the company in October decided to ship all of its fresh fruit in 100% recycled fiber boxes.

“This is just one more step towards sustainability for our company,” Matt McLean, founder and chief executive officer, said in a news release. "We believe in protecting the environment and know that using recycled cardboard boxes is one more way to accomplish that goal. It’s a decision that reflects and upholds our core values.”
