Hershey's Unwraps Environmentally Friendly Packaging

04.29.14 | Terry Diener

The Hershey Company says it is saving a small forest each year with its new packaging design for Hershey's Miniatures. The new packaging is hitting retail shelves this week. The wrappers have bolder graphic designs but also are lighter than the old ones. A Hershey spokeswoman said it will equate to 271,800 pounds of wrappers saved over the course of a year - enough paper to fill 11 tractor trailers and amounting to nearly 2,000 trees.
