Less Plastic More Care – with 87% less plastic for the environment
As one of Europe’s largest and most dynamically growing manufacturers of nutritional supplements, we have committed ourselves to sports and a healthy lifestyle. We seek to use our products and expertise to help as many people globally as we can to achieve their goals. From now on, besides conscious eating, we also offer an alternative to conscious shopping! We have taken the first steps to manufacture the packaging of our products using less plastic, as well as to encourage our customers to shop more environmentally consciously.
Our campaign called ‘Less Plastic More Care’ seeks to call the attention of our customers to the fact that, when buying our protein powders, now they have an option to choose more environmentally friendly packaging within BioTechUSA’ range instead of the large plastic bottles.
Every great change begins with a small step
According to the findings of research conducted in 2018-, since 1950, about 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced globally, of which only 600 million tons were recycled – which is only 9% of the amount produced! Year by year, about one tenth of the amount produced ends up in the oceans and other natural waters, causing irreversible damages to the flora and fauna.
Having realised the problem, from now on our company will offer an alternative to large plastic protein bottles and enable our customers to purchase their favourite protein powders in a packaging that contributes to reducing the use of this material. Besides the existing packaging amounts (25 g, 500 g, 908 g and 2,270 g), the Iso Whey Zero whey protein isolate is also offered in a 1,816 g bag, which requires 87% less plastic to manufactured than the plastic bottle with 2,2270 g of protein powder. Each such product bears a ‘Less Plastic More Care’ label and a logo in a green stripe at the top, along with some information and an invitation to join.
What 87% means in the case of BioTechUSA
Based on the 2018 sales figures, if every customer chose to buy the new, 1,816 g bag instead of the 2,270 g Iso Whey Zero, it would mean more than 100 tons less plastic annually.
It might seem a small step, but by buying the bag packaging, we can protect our environment from 111 tons of plastic in one year. And that’s only the beginning – we will soon expand the range of our specially packaged products, and our shops will provide paper bags with the purchases.
What to do with the empty plastic protein bottles
Unfortunately, our manufacturing processes do not allow us to take back the empty plastic bottles and reuse them, and for shelf life reasons, momentarily we cannot refill the bottles at our shop. However, there is a solution! Now you can choose the 1,816 g packaging size and use that to refill your bottle.
Or, reuse them creatively! Our consumers have shared lots of ideas in the social media about it. Here is step-by-step guide that shows you how to turn you bottle into a plant holder.
