My favorite cereal in the morning is Cheerios, and I tend to purchase it from Costco when I don’t have a coupon for it. I like how I get 2 big packages of cereal for a good price. However, sometimes it was hard to keep my cereal from getting crushed since it included 2 bags within 1 box.
However, General Mills has just updated the Cheerios packaging in the warehouse stores – Costco, Sam’s Club, or BJ’s. Now, each Cheerios pack contains two individual boxes, making them easier to store and easier to pour.
I was a little worried that this creates more waste with more cardboard (although it can be recycled). However, General Mills has also reduced the amount of air in each individual bag, so each enhanced container fits 10% more cereal than before and uses less packaging. This reduces packaging material by over 200,000 lbs, saving 1,000 trees and takes 130 Cheerios trucks of the road, which decreases CO2 emissions.
You can find out more about the new packaging by checking out this Cheerios video.
General Mills through MyBlogSpark has offered to give two (2) lucky readers (2) new 2 box Cheerios packaging (four boxes).
You must be at least 18 years old and a U.S. resident to win.
