Recycling and Packaging
Body by nature supplements is making many advances in the way we send our high-quality supplements and vitamins to our customers. From the beginning of our launch in 2011, we only sold our supplements in a plastic bottle. In 2016 we launched our "Eco pip packs". These packs can be bought in sizes of 30, 50, and 100. These may be increased in the future to larger sizes.
We trailed sending out our packages without the plastic bag which goes over the box to protect it, but we found many of our customers emails us to say the item had not arrived. We wondered if the box looked more like a DVD could be inside. We then decided to go back to the grey plastic bag but managed to source a recyclable bag that has already been recycled and now can once again be recycled.
The cardboard box is made from recycled cardboard so again is sustainable. We pay more money for our grey plastic bags because they have been recycled but we feel the extra cost out ways the effect on the planet.
Our inhouse team has cut down a massive amount of waste bu using paper, board, and other containers. We also have contacted all our suppliers who we do business with and have asked them to please either use recycled plastics if they must use plastic or sustainable cardboard. We are looking at our waste and use of plastics on a monthly basis and always looking to make improvements where necessary.
Just some of the ways we as a company are making a small difference in the world.

Our ongoing improvements with our Eco-friendly Vitamin Packaging
Sustainability of the eco-system is quickly becoming an area of focus not just to us but also other manufactures and consumers of products across the world. The need to comply with this increased focus on the green issue makes us prioritize packaging of our vitamin supplements in eco- friendly packages as opposed to plastic packages which pose a threat to the environment because of their poor biodegradability.
In our quest as body by nature supplements to ensure this, over the last few years, we have shifted from plastic bags to more environmentally friendly packs. We have at some point resorted to cardboard boxes, but this posed a challenge in delivering the products to clients since packages got lost on the way, presumably due to them being mistaken for other products such as electronics. This challenge forced us to revert to plastic bags, although later on, we moved to bags made of recycled materials.
Using recycled bags is more economic friendly in the sense that it reduces an extensive amount of waste, thus helping in conserving the environment. Environmental conservation is a collective responsibility. This has made us encourage our business partners to take up the initiative to use recyclable material that is not plastic. In the event that only plastics are available to them, we advise that they use recycled plastics to cut down on the waste that litters the environment. It is good to note that this shift comes at a cost and we are ready to incur the costs, putting in mind that the long-term benefits of this initiative outweigh the short-term costs.
