Ocean Waste Plastic

Ocean Waste Plastic

Plastic pollution: a global problem

Polluted oceans

Plastic enters our oceans at a staggering rate—approximately 8 million pieces a day—and it affects the entire planet.

It is believed that by the end of this decade there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish, by weight. One of plastic’s key benefits is also its primary problem… it’s permanence. Rather than disappear it degrades and breaks up into micro-plastic particles that can find their way into the food chain and eventually onto your plate at home!

That’s why it’s imperative that we not only clean up the plastic already in our oceans, but that we act now to stop more of the material ending up there.

Reclaimed ocean plastic

To counter this devastating level of pollution, we’ve worked closely with one of the most innovative plastic manufacturers to develop an Ocean Waste Plastic that can be used to make bottles to house our supplements.

Production of this plastic is cleaner and more efficient than using regular plastic. It takes less energy and produces less CO2 to create the plastic used in our Ocean Waste bottles.

So we’re not only reducing the pollution in our planet’s oceans, but we’re also reducing our impact on the environment as a whole.

The bottles are chemically identical to traditionally-produced plastic, ensuring they are hygienic and 100% recyclable.

But why not ditch plastic altogether?

Plastic itself is actually incredibly versatile and effective for medical and health products. It’s the poorly thought-through way that it is manufactured, used and recycled that causes the real problems.

When we started discussions within our supply chain about making further improvements to our environmental commitments, alternative materials (including glass and aluminium) were investigated thoroughly. We found that our bottles required less packaging when transported, used less energy to produce and used less energy when recycled.

Packaging mass

Alternative materials would be 3.6 times heavier than plastic packaging

Greenhouse Gas emissions

Alternatives to plastic would result in 2.7 times more GHG emissions over their lifetime

Energy

It would take around twice as much energy to use alternative materials to plastic packaging
