Sustaining our Oceans

    By the end of 2020, all of our products will be manufactured using Ocean Waste Plastic because we believe it’s our responsibility to support the environment in restoring its natural balance.

    Ocean Waste Plastic Certified

    Up to 8 Million tons of plastic enter our oceans every year

    By year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish by weight in the oceans

    More than 5 Trillion pieces of plastic currently litter the oceans (150 tons)

    More than 95% of all plastic packaging is only used once

    Ocean Waste Plastic Reduces CO2 Emissions

    An indirect benefit of replacing virgin plastic with Ocean Waste plastic is a major reduction in CO2 emissions.

    Producing 1,000 grams of OWP reduces CO2 emissions by 56%, compared to producing 1,000 grams of virgin plastic.

    In Addition:

    •  Production of recycled plastic uses 85% less energy and emits 75% fewer greenhouse gases than producing virgin plastic.
    • Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.

    100% Recyclable Cartons

    We use 100% recyclable materials to produce Healist cartons and all packing materials. We print with renewable, biodegradable soy ink.

    Hemp is a Sustainable Wonder Crop

    • Supporting the Environment: Our plants absorb CO2 through natural photosynthesis, making it carbon negative from the very start.
    • Supporting the Farmer:  Our plants grow in a variety of climate and soil types, very tightly spaced (decreasing land use), with a fast growing rate (leading to high yields), and need about half as much water (when compared to cotton) to thrive.
    • Supporting Humanity:  Our whole plant extract offers a more sustainable solution across a variety of uses – textiles and paper production, building materials, plastics, and bio-fuels.
