Nutrigold is a professional and environmentally conscious organisation who will meet or exceed all environmental legislation. The environmental impact of all our activities is a key concern of our business and we are constantly striving to make improvements and pushing our suppliers to do the same.
You can rest assured that sustainability is an important issue to us here at Nutrigold and something we will continue to improve upon with detailed and conscientious research.
We use predominantly PET plastic pots as they are made from partly or fully recycled materials and are 100% recyclable themselves. Crucially, this is in line with the current recycling capabilities in the UK and Europe. These pots are also “low energy” production, as we try to steer away from “high energy” glass usage. Of course, plastic is not suitable for some liquids and probiotics according to our technical data and this is when we will use glass.
We are committed to our reuse policy, and much of the packaging you receive when ordering from us will be reused materials. Our warehouse team use Biofil™ packing peanuts to fill boxes which are dissolvable in water and seal our packages with 100% recyclable bio tape. We will always aim to use the smallest packages possible to cut down on the amount of transportation needing to be used.
All our workplace waste is “Zero to Landfill”
Our forklift is run on electric, and all our wooden pallets are reused or recycled. We encourage all our staff to act as sustainably as possible, from the simplicity of switching off our low voltage lights and photocopiers when not needed to enabling them to enrol in an Electric Vehicle Scheme.
Supporting the Wider Community
All our printing is produced using paper provided by the Woodland Trust which is made from Zero Co2 emissions from fossil fuels and are FSC certified. With every pack of paper purchased a donation is made to re-planting trees by the Woodland Trust. We also make charitable contributions to WWF and the Greyton Conservation Society.
