We wanted to give you an update on some positive changes that are coming in the weeks and months ahead for the Macánta range.
We have been looking at the way we run our business and are taking steps to substantially reduce our carbon footprint by making the switch to greener packaging.
After much research and careful consideration, we have decided to move away from our glass bottles and are instead going to be producing our products in new Irish made recycled bottles. These new amber bottles, which you will see with our brand new Glucosamine Sulphate 750mg product, are made in Limerick by an Irish company.
These new bottles also make recycling after use a simpler process for consumers as they can go in with the dry recyclables, and no longer require a trip to a bottle bank.
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 currently our bottles have 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. We will be rolling out these changes on new batches of our Macánta products so you will see them arriving in stores and on our website in the coming weeks and months.
