The blister packs used for some of our tablets like B12 Rapi-Melt 1000 mcg and Sleep Sound Formula, and the plastic bottled used for our Cold and Allergy Shield Nasal Sprays can’t be recycled due to mixed materials so pop them in your general waste.

Hi, I just received my latest subscription order and as usual it was correct and delivered very promptly. However I am disappointed in the packaging that arrived around my parcel. 3 bottles of Insolar in a cardboard box is fine as I can re-use, burn or re-cycle this box easily. Even so, the cardboard box was 21 x 21 x 17 cm for just 3 bottles. If you have rural customers (RD addresses) who get their deliveries by Rural mail then perhaps a smaller delivery box that suits both the contents, and can be placed inside the standard rural mail box would help. This one didn't fit and sat outside in the rain. Packaging was an overkill as well - probably to fill the box of that size. 3 pieces of bubble wrap for the bottles (1 m in length total) plus filler bubble wrap - 9 pieces (2.7m) and two larger pieces (2.5m total).There are no instructions or re-cycling codes on this packaging. There is soft plastic recycling in NZ but drop off points are still not common. It seems a shame that a health focused organisation is still using old fashioned packing materials that are adding to my rubbish collection costs and more importantly to our landfill problems.
The plastic Lids can also be recycled at Precious Plastic and they turn them into cool products :) We also send the blister packs & Webster packs to Flora & Fauna for recycling. Just a suggestion, it would be good if your packaging was made from recycled materials as well. Thanks
Hello and thank you for caring about the planet. The blister packs can be recycled by taking them to BIOME and they recycle them as part of their TerraCycle program.
