What is P&G doing for the environment?
Our long-term corporate vision is to achieve 100% renewable or recycled material in our products and packaging, zero waste going to landfills, and conservation of resources in designing our products. To help realize this vision, we are developing products that rinse faster, clean better in cold water to save energy, and use less packaging through more product concentration. For our packaging, we are investing in improving our recycling rates to help reduce waste.
Procter & Gamble has always been concerned about protecting and caring for the environment. As a company, we strive to meet the most stringent quality standards and regulations though production processes that do not pollute the environment.

Can I recycle your packaging?
Our dish detergent packages are recyclable in most areas.
Cascade® bottles are made of HDPE. Since we have different bottle suppliers, they contain an average of 28% HDPE Post-Consumer Recycle (PCR) from Plastipak and approximately 25% HDPE PCR from Graham.
Cascade cartons are made of carton board and contain 100% recycled pulp.
What dishwasher cycle should I use with Cascade for the best cleaning?
Use different wash cycles for different needs, especially the “sensing” cycles. If you are in a hurry and have lightly soiled loads, use the quick or short cycle on your dishwasher. For everyday soil loads use the Normal cycle. For burnt-on or baked-on foods, use the heavy/tough cycle, tough-cleaning options or zone washing. Additionally, for all cycles, use Cascade Platinum ActionPacs™ to clean stuck-on food in one wash, with no prewash needed. Plus, with 3X more* film-fighting power for sparkling silverware and dishwasher.
