What's the environmental impact?
We are fully dedicated to the preservation and protection of our environment. Our bottles are the most recyclable of bottle options, PETE 1 and our cleanses are delivered in 100% recyclable paper bags. Our cooler pads are reused every day. We communicate with our clients almost exclusively via email and phone, thus minimizing the use of paper. All our pulp goes straight back to our local farmers where it is composted to create the best soil for new veggies and fruits. We will continue to strive every day to make our operations greener and environmentally friendly.
Why don't you use glass bottles?
Plastic sucks. But as much as we loathe it, in our region, plastic is a more environmentally sound choice than glass. Why? Because it does not need to be shipped half across the world. Plastic is a more space and energy efficient way to package our juice. A single plastic bottle uses fewer resources to create, fill, ship, and distribute than a single glass bottle. This is because glass bottles weigh up to nine times more than plastic bottles. We use PETE1 plastic for the following reasons: Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE) doesn't leach, and is generally considered the safest single-use plastic-bottle choice. It is the most desired plastic for recycling and of course BPA-free. It is dramatically lighter than other bottle options, which means less fuel is used to create and deliver each bottle. It's also a better barrier to gases than other plastic, so our bottles protect our juices' good nutrients from oxygen, carbon dioxide, and other gases that might affect the nutritional quality and taste. Our ultimate goal is to be 100% plastic free and we're working hard to achieve this target. Our yummy Power and Protein Balls are already packaged in plant-based, completely compostable containers and we are hopeful that the packaging industry will be ready to offer us an alternative, plant based options for our beverages soon.
