Our mission for a cleaner planet

Our mission for a cleaner planet

Posted by Rebecca Hopkins on

Recyclability is important to us and we are working on some exciting packaging developments, which will be coming soon. In the meantime, find out more about our current efforts to be kinder to our planet.

On the back of the BBCs Blue Planet and the nation’s increased interest in recyclability, we are experiencing a heightened interest in what packaging Balance Me uses and why.

Please find below the current status quo and you’ll see some exciting developments from us over the next few months as we undertake a full review of our componentry. Please note that on the bottom of most of our packaging you will find a triangle with a number (called the resin identification code) which refers to the type of plastics used in the composition of the packaging. Because not all plastics are commonly accepted by recycling facilities, by referring to these resin codes it can help you determine which consumer plastics you can place in your recycling bin.

Our top tips for recycling:
•Follow your local council recycling advice regarding sorting of packaging

•Remove pumps/mists from bottles where possible

Unfortunately, we are yet to find a pump that is recyclable so please remove our pumps from our bottles and dispose of separately.
