We created our Recycling Program to reduce the waste we accumulate in the process of expanding Planet Protein. We're proud to offer this program as another step to furthering the synergy between Planet Protein, our Earth, and you. For most of us, buying a protein bar is a simple activity. We’re hungry, we grab a meal bar, eat, and toss the wrapper. While convenience and security have made our lives considerably easier and opened the door for more enjoyment in our day, they’ve also distanced us from the earth and contributed to global forest and ocean destruction.
We looked into our options as we grew more conscious of our waste. We recognized that there isn’t a simple solution! How could we promote products that are ethical, nutritious, and portable and still focus on reducing package waste? Without preservatives, and knowing the darker side of bioplastics, we were left with quite the conundrum. The essential foil liner inside the wrapper could not be separated from the plastic for recycling by conventional means. With our partners, we can finally recycle, and repurpose and believe us, they’re creative. We expect to see our bars made into backpacks, playgrounds, benches, chairs, and school desks. We couldn’t be more excited to see our “waste” turn to worth!
We recognize that our products lend to a cleaner planet and a healthier you, but why stop there? We created our internal recycling program as a way to combat our overall waste and empower you to make positive decisions on both sides of our wrapper! With every online purchase you will receive Planet Points to reward you for shopping. Each Planet Point is a true representation of our efforts as producers (and consumers ourselves) to make a maximum impact in your life and avoid disturbing our beautiful earth. Thank you for joining and believing in our mission of conscious consumption!
