Reducing Packaging Impact
No packaging solution is perfect, but we consider many things in order to try and make the best choices possible. New, more sustainable packaging technologies are emerging all of the time and we commit to regularly challenging our packaging solution to continually improve.
Our tubes are made from sugarcane, which is farmed sustainably in Brazil from Bonsucro certified sources. Farming of sugarcane does not require a lot of water and it grows very quickly making it a great renewable source. The entire production of the packs does not release any more carbon into the atmosphere that it takes out, making them carbon neutral as a minimum. Something that we verify via a carbon dating process.
Unfortunately, recycling systems are flawed and vary from country to country meaning that not everything we put in our recycling is going to get recycled. These systems need to improve. However we have worked with the Association of Plastic Recyclers and taken several steps to give our tubes the best chance possible!
