SUSTAINABILITY

SUSTAINABILITY

Shout out to planet Earth — you little legend.

We're not on another planet. We love where we love and like most, care about what happeneds to our earthly surroundngs. Our team has taken every consideration to ensure our processes, suppliers and materials reduce waste and have minimal impact on our environment. Our primary focus is on the production of high-quality packaging with the aim to reduce our carbon footprint.

Smoothie pouches

Our ready-to-drink smoothies are classified as a food. We must comply with food-grade packaging regulations or we get a BIG slap on the wrist. To make sure the products you buy arrive perfectly intact at your door, each pouch is made with a strong double layer of leak proof foil, followed by a plastic coating and matte finish. This means you don't need to worry about that unexpected spill in your gym bag but for transparency, it does make them harder to recycle.

Surprisingly our plastic pouch has a better carbon footprint than glass (consuming less energy to be produced and shipped). But we will do better. By 2024 Swisse Me commits to having 100% recyclable packaging.

Helpful partners

For now the eco-friendly options for these pouches are limited in the FMCG industry, so we’ve invested in a partnership with TerraCycle® to ensure we reduce our environmental impact. They can collect and recycle almost any form of waste, including our smoothie pouches. Using innovative processes TerraCycle® make the traditionally non-recyclable, recyclable!

Boxes and packaging

100% of our current boxes can be recycled again and again! All the cardboard we use in our production is made of up to 70% recycled fibres and all new material is ethically sourced from certified sustainably managed forests. Our new protein products will have recycle-friendly packaging which we’re all stoked about! Our Protein Powders and Protein Balls will feature widely recyclable packaging made from a plastic which has a recycling percentage of around 80-85%.

Carbon neutral

Our operations are Scope 1 & 2 carbon neutral. In other words, we constantly working to reduce our energy consumption. It’s our way of supporting the industry to transition to a greener future for us all.

Palm oil

Palm Oil clearing is a massive face palm. A major driver of deforestation of some of the world’s most biodiverse forests and destroying the habitat of already endangered species; it’s a natural killer. We know this is a massive issue in the food industry and are happy to state that we’re a Palm Oil Free brand which stands against the use of Palm Oil in our products.

Our promise

As part of our promise to reduce single-use plastic and our carbon footprint, we are working with our production team to be even more environmentally sustainable in 2020.
