We deliberately chose plastic pots (instead of glass jars) that are produced in Europe. We opt for a safe, high-quality plastic recycling process because it is better for the environment. It is less cumbersome, allows for energy recovery, and it also needs less water to produce, and has lower CO2 emissions. The lids and caps are also produced in Europe. We use compressed wood waste, with a recycling process that is also done in-house.
The secondary packaging consists of recycled paper that we use, in accordance with the minimum-waste principle. We have chosen to design one complete package from one sheet. The idea here is to make maximum use, leaving us with a minimum level of waste during the production.
Packing and shipping of our products is organized as sustainably as possible. Our shipping boxes are made from recycled cardboard, (extra if we fill the box to protect the products) of shredded cardboard or of other compostable materials (such as plastic air bags that protect the products).
Production and recycling of the packaging is a CO2 footprint, which we want to minimize! We do this by choosing sustainable packaging, we want to reuse materials, so that resources can retain their value. The production of our packaging takes place in Europe to keep our footprint as small as possible. We choose partners and suppliers who are very conscious of the production process, where the production continuously adapts (renewable / new energy, limiting use of water, etc.) in order to reduce the environmental impact. About 25% of the energy comes from renewable energy. Our partners also conduct in-house recycling of all materials.
