Earth Friendly Packaging
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.
~Native American Proverb
At Olivia’s Organics we understand that preserving our natural resourses is essential for the future of our children. We sponsor local agriculture; we don’t use pesticides or synthetic fertilizers; we support renewable resources and we recycle. It’s part of our organic pledge.
That’s why all of our packaging is 100% recyclable. It’s BPA free, and made from recycled PETE. There are many benefits to using PETE (recycled plastic bottles):
PETE is the most recycled plastic
It’s lightweight and strong and requires less material to be used per unit of packaging thus reducing overall environmental burdens.
It’s reusable for many applications around the home.
Nearly one-third of all plastic bottles produced in the US are made from a material called PolyEthylene Terephtalate, "PET" or "PETE." This clear or green plastic is mostly used for consumer goods such as soda bottles and food jars. Last year United States manufacturers produced more than 5 billion pounds of PET products. This high production rate makes finding uses for post-consumer plastics critical. If the current rate of manufacturing and consumer recycling remains, 40 billion pounds of PET waste will be added to our landfills within only a decade. By reusing PET in our packaging, Olivia's Organics contributes to the recycling and re-using of thousands of pounds of PETE/yr.
Our containers are made right here in the US using wind and hydroelectric power. They feature a new easy-to-use safety seal that is re-sealable and reusable. The sturdy, crush-proof containers protect the salads from damage more effectively than salads found in bags.
What our customers are saying about us:
“Just wanted to let you know I love your new packaging! Having the zip off seal eliminates extra plastic. Bravo to you for continuing to help the environment.” Milford, PA
“I thought you might like to know that I re-use your containers for composting. I keep one under the sink and put the compost in there during the week. Then off to the composter and a quick rinse and into the recycle bin!”
