The first cooking spray to remove its large cap in 2017 and subsequently save 120 tonnes of plastic waste per year, Frylight has been on a mission to ensure its products are as environmentally friendly as possible ever since.


Frylight is the bestselling oil in Britain, and there’s good reason.

Providing a healthier way to cut your calorie intake and fat consumption, Frylight helps you to continue cooking the meals you love without hidden calories or compromise.

Since its launch in 1992, Frylight has developed its packaging to perform better than any other cooking spray on the market – and being environmentally friendly has been key a part of this.

How is Frylight better for the environment vs poured oil?

Although it doesn’t look like much, Frylight’s 190ml bottle lasts three times longer than a litre of poured oil* – a huge reduction on the use of single-use plastic.

The smaller bottle also means that the brand can transport far more, resulting in less miles driven and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions too.

As well as using less calories, Frylight allows for less waste. With less oil poured down the sink and drain as a result of a switch to a cooking spray, this has a positive impact on the number of fatbergs – the cause of many waste blockages, health hazards and environmental damage.

Is Frylight recyclable?

Frylight’s packaging contains 12 individual parts – all of which are 100% recyclable.

From a smaller lid that has saved 120 tonnes of plastic waste per year since its change in 2017, through to the pump mechanism to ensure it accurately offers consumers 1 calorie per spray, Frylight uses a variety of materials within its packaging to ensure the best performance for its customers.

With an aim to use 100% recycled bottles by 2023, Frylight hopes to improve its environmentally friendly status once these materials become available for the brand.

Don’t forget to recycle!
