Glenroy Small Hummus LCA

Hummus is a popular dip often packaged in a PET plastic tub. This Life Cycle Assessment study with a cradle-to-grave boundary evaluated a popular hummus brand in a 10 oz PET plastic tub and the premade STANDCAP Pouch, an eco-friendly inverted flexible pouch. The results of this scenario show that the premade STANDCAP Pouch results in lower impacts across a wide range of environmental metrics including water use, greenhouse gas emissions, and material discarded. The inclusion of PCR drives all of the environmental indicators lower – fossil fuel, greenhouse gas emissions, and water use.
