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 our products without external unit cartons and offer our products in fully reusable and recyclable amber glass vessels. Where plastic is required (for jar closures/caps) we are committed to using recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET).
What materials do NEUÚ use in its packaging?
We choose all packaging materials based on the product formulation, shipping requirements and the corresponding environmental impact of each and every choice. As a result, NEUÚ products are 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. Where paper and cardboard are used in our packaging, we use stock that is from renewable sources and 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 and/or office items or can be reused to store oils, creams or powders. In the event you do not have an ongoing use for your NEUÚ glass jar and have access to recycling services we recommend separating the components and placing unwanted glass jar and jar cap/closure into the appropriate recycling bins or alternative recovery systems as both items are commonly recyclable.
