NEUÚ & Sustainability
What is the NEUÚ approach to sustainable packaging?
Our packaging ethos is sustainable and functional and is designed to have minimum environmental impact while at the same time maintaining product integrity and quality. Our objective is to keep to a minimum the amount of energy and raw materials used to produce our packaging and to establish circular practices that will help minimise waste and allow for the reuse of our packaging. As part of our commitment to sustainable packaging we offer products without external unit cartons where possible. NEUÚ Products are housed in fully reusable and recyclable amber glass vessels and where plastic is required to house certain products (such as those for use in wet areas) we are committed to using recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET). To minimise our packaging footprint further we also plan to offer some products in larger 500mL sizes with a screw cap in place of a pump for customers that wish to replenish their NEUÚ formulation at home.
What materials do NEUÚ use in its packaging?
We use a number of materials in our packaging, with due consideration given to ensure we choose the most appropriate material for each formulation and for our environment. As a result, NEUÚ products are primarily housed in amber-coloured glass vessels, a material traditionally used by the pharmaceutical industry for housing medicinal products given the dark colour of the glass offers contents a degree of UV protection thus minimising the need for preservatives. Where possible, we use glass packaging made from recycled content. For some formulations (such as those for use in wet areas) we use recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (rPET) plastic which provides a lightweight, durable and safe material for certain formulations. Where paper and cardboard are used in our packaging, we use stock that is recyclable.
How can I repurpose or recycle my NEUÚ packaging?
There are a number of ways to repurpose your NEUÚ packaging. Our jars are suited to be reused as storage containers for small household items. Our facewash bottles make pretty vases or vessels to house other household liquids such as oils. In the event you do not have an ongoing use for your NEUÚ container and have access to recycling services we recommend separating components and placing any unwanted glass, carboard and recycle PET containers into appropriate recycling bins or alternative recovery systems as these items are all commonly recyclable.
