Our Commitment To Sustainable Packaging and Zero Waste

Single-use plastic packaging is wreaking havoc on our environment. Consider the following:

  • The equivalent of one garbage truck load of plastic is dumped into the ocean each minute, and this figure is projected to double by 2030 and quadruple by 2050. 
  • Plastic and packaging waste comprise 30 percent of total U.S. waste annually. 
  • Only 14 percent of plastic is put in the recycling bin and a meager 5 percent is repurposed for subsequent use.

In short: most plastic ends up in landfills and the ocean, where it causes enormous environmental harm.  

As a lifelong surfer, skier, and outdoor enthusiast, I care deeply about protecting our natural world. 

This is why Adapt Naturals launched with glass bottles (instead of plastic) and recycled paper shipping material (rather than plastic bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts).

It's also why Adapt Naturals is proud to be a member of the One Step Closer (OSC) Packaging Collaborative, a group of over 40 industry-leading brands that come together in the name of steering the natural products industry towards leading-edge solutions in environmentally friendly and sustainable packaging solutions.

I’m excited to announce that we’re taking another big step toward zero plastic and landfill waste in our supply chain. We’re transitioning our product line to 100% compostable stand-up pouches!

The pouches are made from cellulose (wood pulp). They are PLA- and GMO-free and don’t contain harmful chemicals, including BPA, PFAS, or phthalates. And they’re printed with non-toxic, compostable ink. 

They’re so clean and biodegradable that you can put them in your backyard or curbside compost bin! 

Here are a few other benefits of the pouches:

  • They’re easy to travel with (because they’re lightweight and compressible). 
  • They take up less space on your kitchen counter.
  • They have a 2-year shelf-life—just like our products.

These pouches will also dramatically decrease the energy required to ship the products because they’re lighter and more compact than either plastic or glass bottles.

That said, some customers may still prefer to store their supplements in glass containers. So, we’ve created beautiful glass storage bottles for each product. 

These reusable containers can store your supplements if you prefer bottles to pouches on your countertop. They are available for a nominal charge and can be added to any order. And they only have to be ordered once!

We hope you’ll love our new eco-friendly packaging system as much as we do.

Together, we can make a meaningful difference in reducing single-use plastic and landfill waste and protecting our planet!
