Our new compostable packs have just been introduced to our Performance Protein: Chocolate Peanut, Vanilla and our Toffee Superblend Protein, and will be rolled out across other flavours over the next six to nine months. In our effort to conserve the planet and move toward less waste as best we can, we’re really happy to now be providing our protein blends in compostable paper packaging that’s 100% biodegradable – something that many of our customers have previously requested.
As part of this the seals are also now compostable rather than plastic - the first on the market. This was necessary to make the complete pouch compostable. And we no longer include scoops in our packs.
Mindful thinking with packaging is something we take very seriously and have done a lot of work to get to where we are.
We are constantly working on improving the amount of waste coming with our products.
So far we've also introduced smaller boxes for smaller orders to minimise the amount of packaging used. All boxes are recycled card and recyclable. We use stand up pouches, these are the most sustainable from a carbon footprint point of view using much less packaging than other solutions such as plastic pots.
An important consideration is that when empty they take up very little space, meaning they are lighter and cheaper to transport through the supply chain. This means less fuel use during transport and production. When considered in the whole, and recycle rates are taken into account, they are the most sustainable option.
We really appreciate you asking and hope you can see these are all issues we think about carefully.
