At Herbaland, our people and our planet come first. We strive to make sustainable decisions in our global community from eco-friendly production technology to ingredient sourcing, and packaging. Encompassing our core values in everything we do, we are committed more than ever to our goal of providing all of our products in compostable packaging by 2025!
In our next step towards achieving this goal, we have launched refill pouches for our five best-selling gummy vitamins! You can now find our Vegan D3 & B12, Calm Naturally, Vegan Collagen Booster, Sleep Plus, and Kids Multivitamins in 100% compostable pouches to refill your plastic bottles and reduce your plastic waste. Choosing to refill your Herbaland bottles with our new refill pouches will help to eliminate over 15,900 bottles, which amounts to 640kg of plastic per year. Join us in our effort towards sustainability.
What's the benefit of having refillable pouches?
By purchasing our refill pouches, you will help us to reduce the amount of plastic packaging that we use in production. Our refill pouches are made out of organic materials that can be decomposed, so when it’s time to restock your gummy vitamins you can fill your current plastic bottle, cut up the pouch into small pieces, and dispose of it in your compost bin. This will significantly reduce the amount of waste we produce and contribute to the health of our planet!
How do you compost the refill pouches?
After you refill your bottle with your pouch of gummies, cut it up into small pieces to help it decompose and place it in one of the following:
- Compost Bin
- Bokashi Bin
- Worm Farm
- Community Garden
- Organic Waste Collection
- Drop-offs from Organic Waste Collections Group
In about 180 days, the pouch will break down and can foster the growth of new plants!
What are our refill pouches made from?
Our compostable pouch is created from a blend of plant-based materials including wood pulp, corn starch, cassava, sugarcane, and beets. This material is sealed with PLA, a bio-based plastic that is made from cornstarch and is very durable. The process of creating the pouches uses significantly less water and energy than the production of traditional plastic packaging, which makes these pouches super eco-friendly!
