Mars has debuted candy jars made with 15% recycled plastic — for M&M’s, Starburst and Skittles bulk products — in collaboration with packaging manufacturer Berry, which will launch in October.

The containers are available in 60-, 81- and 87-ounce varieties and will eliminate roughly 300 tons of virgin plastic each year, the companies said.

Mars is investing hundreds of millions of dollars to redesign its packaging to be more sustainable as it aims to get closer to its pledge of reaching 100% recyclable packaging by 2025.
