A month after splashy relaunch, a consumer association revealed the "wrapper" for 100g of chocolate weighs 50g and is made from the type of PET that cannot be recycled. Nestlé insists this luxury purchase is for gift giving and deserves an expensive looking package. Swiss Federal Environmental Office calls it a step in the wrong direction away from sustainability.
