Sustainability at Naked Biotics
At Naked Biotics, we believe that sustainability is a journey rather than destination. As a business we’re always moving forward; continually becoming cleaner, greener and leaner with regard to our planet and the resources it generously provides.
Happily, our products have the advantage of being natural, both in their ingredients and the fermentation process that is key to their quality. They are also free from artificial sweeteners, flavours, colours, preservatives and genetically modified ingredients. So we start from a strong earth-friendly, natural position.
That said, production and delivery of our liquid probiotics uses electricity, water, fuel and plastic packaging, so we can’t be complacent about our sustainable challenges. Here’s what we’re doing in a number of areas.
Our bottles are 100% PET plastic. PET is completely recyclable and is the most recycled plastic in the world - just be sure to put them in your recycling bin! Then there’s the outer packaging. This is cardboard which is once again fully recyclable.
Naked Biotics works with DPD to deliver its liquid probiotics nationwide. DPD’s green credentials match our ambitions. They have the largest, greenest vehicle fleet in the UK with 10% being zero emission electric vans.
Naked Biotics probiotic liquids can be stored at room temperature. This means there is no need for refrigeration, hence saving electricity in our warehouses and our suppliers’ warehouses too. It also saves a bit of space in your fridge!
Our probiotics are vegan-approved and align with our vegan ideals. If everyone in the UK each week swapped a red meat meal to a plant-based one, it would cut the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50 million tonnes; the equivalent of taking 16 million cars off the road. Make your diet make a difference!
