As part of our global mission to make the world healthier and happier, Swisse Wellness is committed to our local communities and the environment. Our team has taken every consideration to ensure our processes, suppliers and materials reduce waste and have minimal impact on our environment. After all, we’re inspired by nature.
B Corp Business
At Swisse Wellness we believe business should be a force for good. In the UK, Swisse Wellness is aiming to achieve B Corp certification by 2022. All of our owned operations are now carbon neutral. Our team in London use renewable energy sources and we offset all of the emissions we produce at work; including waste, flights, electricity, gas, water and computer services, so we’re in good stead to achieve our goal.
Fighting the Climate Crisis
We’re a 'Certified Climate Hero' brand and our partnership with One Tribe means you too can fight the climate crisis every time you shop on swisse.co.uk. Rainforests are the lungs of our planet and store CO2 from our atmosphere, so we want to protect them! We’re committed to saving endangered rainforests, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and every order placed saves 25 trees!
Reducing carbon footprint
Swisse Me’s ready-to-drink smoothies are classified as a food. We must comply with food-grade packaging regulations or we get a big slap on the wrist. To make sure your products arrive perfectly intact at your door, each pouch is made with a strong double layer of leak proof foil, followed by a plastic coating and matte finish. This means you don't need to worry about that unexpected spill in your gym bag but for transparency, it does make them harder to recycle. Our plastic pouches do have a better carbon footprint than glass (consuming less energy to be produced and shipped). But we can do better. By 2024 Swisse Me commits to having 100% recyclable smoothie packaging.
The Swisse Wellness range of products use sustainable packaging wherever possible. The Swisse vitamins and supplements are in ‘bioplastic’ jars which are made from sustainably sourced sugar cane to minimise the impact of plastic on the environment. Our premium wellness formulas feature sustainably sourced ingredients. Additionally, 100% of our current ecomm boxes can be recycled and reused. The cardboard we use in our production is made of up to 70% recycled fibres and all new material is ethically sourced from certified sustainably managed forests. Swisse Me’s Protein Powders and Protein Balls feature widely recyclable packaging too, made from a plastic which has a recycling percentage of around 80-85%. Raise the roof.
Swisse Wellness is engaged in local charity and outreach programmes, such as Body & Soul UK and Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank.
We’re proud to support Body & Soul UK's 'The Nutrition Project' which embeds specialist nutritional advice into their therapeutic programmes. It allows them to employ a sessional nutritionist to deliver 1:1 and small group sessions to members. Our goal is to provide members with specialist and individualised support to encourage healthy relationships with food, improve their understanding of nutrition and increase invested care in their physical health and wellbeing.
We have also partnered with the Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank, who provide emergency food and support to people in crisis.
