Are you concerned about the impact of taking your trusted live bacteria on the environment? There are a multitude of ways to reuse your Optibac jars and reduce the space in landfills. We also encourage you to make a difference by taking a just few moments of your time to recycle packaging.
A new government legislation will ban businesses selling products in single-use plastics. Taking effect from October 2023, however, rest-assured that Optibac already committed to this change long before this deadline!
In 2021, our product packaging had a makeover to ensure that our eco-conscious values were reflected on the outside as well as on the inside. We ditched plastic and opted for glass jars which are reusable and recyclable.
Optibac jars can be reused in many creative ways. Our Nutrition Teams’ tips are:
Even if you are out of ideas on how to reuse the jars, we remind you that you can recycle them rather than bin. Did you know that all our products come in FSC-approved recyclable cartons? This demonstrates our dedication to providing our customers with the most sustainable choices. If you are looking to make a sustainable choice when it comes to choosing your friendly bacteria, then our range is a good option for you.
However, if unfortunately, curb-side recycling isn’t available to you, you could consider taking your jars over to a bottle-bank. You could also see if one of your neighbours needed any extra jars. Our jars could be great to keep kids entertained after school by decorating them, even keeping some well-deserved treats for afterwards as an incentive!
Not only are you doing your part for the environment, but you can also help kids learn by guiding them to the compost bin. Most councils now offer food waste collection, but if they don’t, it’s simple and easy to start your own compost at home.
It has never been more important to look after our environment and our health. We strive to provide our customers with the best choices possible for them and for our planet. The world could be a better place if the delicate equilibrium of our internal and external ecosystems were maintained.
