National Recycling Day is coming up on November 15th! Let’s talk about how you can recycle the packaging of your favorite Superfoods Company products. 

November 15th is National Recycling Day!

Let’s state the obvious: recycling is incredibly important. Of course, we all know this is true, but sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of exactly why we’re recycling. After all, we just toss our recyclables into the bin…and then they’re out of sight, out of mind.

Here are a few fun facts from The Green Team about recycling (just in time for National Recycling Day!) to put things in perspective:

  • You can make enough fiberfill for a ski jacket by recycling five plastic bottles.
  • Recycle one aluminum can, and you can save enough energy to run a TV or computer for three hours.
  • Recycle one glass bottle, and you can save enough energy to light a 100-watt light bulb for four hours.
  • Recycling glass can save 25% to 30% of the energy that would be used to make glass out of virgin materials. 
  • Over a third of paper fiber that is used to make paper is sourced from recycled paper. 

Pretty fascinating, right? Hopefully, these facts can inspire us all to do our part and recycle when possible!

Recycling Your Superfoods: Here’s What You Need to Know

If you’re a Superfoods Company fan, you might be curious about what you need to do to recycle your go-to products. We’ll cover that in a second, but one quick note: recycling rules can differ slightly depending on the state or county you live in. For example, some areas may request that you leave caps on bottles, while others may be able to process those caps separately and ask that you take them off. If you’re unsure, look into your local recycling center’s website for the best info!

Now that we’ve covered that, here’s what you need to know about recycling Superfoods Company products.

Recycling Superfoods Company Products

  • Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies and Super Sleep Melatonin Gummies Containers: These containers are recyclable! Give the bottle a quick rinse in case there is any extra residue, and then either remove or leave on the cap (depending on what your center requires). Most recycling centers don’t need you to take off the label, but double check with your local center to be safe!
  • Superfood Tabs Bottles: These bottles (and the boxes they come in) can also be recycled. Follow the same rules for the gummy bottles, and you’re good to go! Also be sure to break down the box before throwing it in recycling. Looking for a fun way to reuse these bottles? Use them as popsicle molds! Here’s a delicious recipe.
  • Super Amazing Coffee Pods: These pods are recyclable, and made of #5 polypropylene (which is accepted in 75% of recycling centers). After the pod has cooled down, peel off the lid, give the pod a rinse and you’re good to go!

Pro tip: don’t forget about the shipping materials! Break down the cardboard boxes and collect any order slips or informational flyers that you’re done with. Throw them all in the recycling bin, and you’re all set!
