Recycling, Our Planet and Sustainable Farming Practises.

 

We don't use single use plastics.

The convenient, wide mouth tubs your Life Grip products are enclosed in, is 100% recyclable. In fact, the tub you have received recently, is made from the same recyclable plastic.

"We package our products using PET tubs to ensure that every tub sold, is recycled into more tubs" - Adam Phillips, Life Grip Founder.

With your help, we can move away from a linear economy, and closer towards a circular economy.

Here's how it happens;

PET bottles/jars are recycled and then brought to a sorting facility. These are cleaned and re-granulated into plastic pellets. These little  pellets are manufactured into more plastic goods, which when further recycled by other consumers, the process begins all over again. Recycled, sent to a sorting facility, made into pellets and then onto being manufactured into more plastic goods.

No single use plastics, better for the environment.

How do you recycle?

When you're finished with your tub, just place the whole tub (including the scoop and lid), into the recycling bin. Simple.

In 2018 Australia established the ambitious 2025 National Packaging Targets. 

100% of packaging must be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. However, we started years ago, in fact, our first product was launched using the same tubs you have at home right now.

As shown by CSIRO, we need to lead Australia into a Circular Economy.

CSIRO: A vision for circularity in Australia Australia must endeavour to adopt more circularity principles and transition to a circular economy, pushing forward the development of high-value recycled commodities and greener manufacturing solutions based on domestic and global market needs and trends. To realise growth, Australia needs to focus on increasing its capacity and ability to develop and adopt commercially viable solutions for markets while also successfully navigating critical infrastructural, regulatory and behavioural challenges (Figure 1.1). A circular economy creates a circular supply chain that commences with primary materials and aims to keep these materials in use as long and as often as possible, thereby adding value to the materials multiple times.

Sustainable Farming Practises.

We work closely with Australian dairy farms that have sustainable farming practises. Yes, Life Grip uses only sustainably farmed Australian whey protein.
