We wanted to give you an update on some positive changes that we’ve made this year to the Macánta range.

Since 2020, we have been looking at the way we run our business and are taking steps to substantially reduce our carbon footprint. This year, we’ve focused on making the switch to greener packaging.

After much research and careful consideration, we decided late last year to move away from our glass bottles and are instead producing our products in new Irish made recycled bottles since March of this year. These new amber bottles are made in Limerick by an Irish company and can be seen in health stores across Ireland with most of our products now switched over to the recycled plastic. Our 30s and 60s products are now being manufactured exclusively in the recycled bottles. For the moment, all of our products that are available in 90s are still in glass.

In moving away from our current glass bottles, we are also happy to say that we can now eliminate the need for single use plastics on our product seals. Where previously our bottles had plastic heat shrink seals on the outside of the lid, our new packaging contains interior induction heat seals which are tamper proof.

The carbon footprint on the glass bottles is substantially higher than these locally sourced recycled bottles, so we hope that we will have your support as we make this change to a greener future for Macánta.
