In line with its mission of providing a healthy lifestyle options in the most environmentally friendly way possible, PlantX Life (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) has announced new green packaging and sustainability initiatives designed to reduce the company’s carbon footprint (https://ibn.fm/XDZbw). PlantX is committed to creating positive change and promoting both planetary and human health at every level.
“With the evolving anthropogenic threats to the climate, today’s world has seen increasing environmental awareness and interest in planetary protection,” said PlantX founder Sean Dollinger. “People are harnessing a passion for managing our planet’s resources and this momentum is visibly manifesting in various industries.”
“Sustainable packaging, also known as green packaging, is becoming an essential purchasing consideration for the modern consumer,” Dollinger continues. “By choosing to use green packaging, PlantX hopes to mitigate the polluting effects of packaging waste that ends up in landfills from its products. The increasing demand for green packaging and sustainability initiatives is becoming a crucial incentive for many high-impact businesses and manufacturers to integrate eco-friendly and ethical considerations into their operational models.”
The newly announced sustainability initiatives align with PlantX’s vision to create positive change and promote both planetary and human health. The Company is already taking steps in that direction by using 100% eco-friendly packaging and marketing resources for its meal delivery services. PlantX’s green packaging is designed for customers to recycle — it is certified compostable and made from annually renewable sugarcane bagasse — or even reuse; every PlantX entrée container is microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer friendly.
In addition, PlantX is partnering with Quebec-based Colder Fresher Longer, which manufactures box liners and inserts that support PLTXF’s sustainability initiatives. PlantX will use Colder Fresher Longer eco-friendly packaging to maintain products at desired temperatures throughout the shipping process while also reducing the amount of boxes needed to ship PlantX products.
These new packaging standards are just the start of PlantX’s plans to adopt broader sustainability practices. The Company will also be expanding its environmental efforts by charging an eco-fee of $4.95 for certain online purchases to support recycling and disposal programs aimed at keeping certain end-of-line products out of landfills.
Finally, as part of its net-zero practices, PlantX announced that it will be participating in carbon offsetting initiatives, including forest protection and renewable energy projects that offer carbon credits, which recognize when a company decreases carbon emissions. PlantX intends to work with sustainability consultants to measure the emissions reduced through offsetting activities in order to achieve recommended targets.
“We are on a mission to become global leaders in promoting health and well-being for both people and the environment,” said PlantX CEO Julia Frank. “We’re including sustainability practices in a variety of ways, from using eco-friendly plantable business cards made with seed paper to making our packaging more sustainable. We’re committed to joining in the collective efforts to reduce plastic waste and help our plant-based community improve planetary health meaningfully and effortlessly.”
