Ever since I founded Absolutely Natural in 1992, we have always striven to be excellent stewards of the environment.  From the raw materials we purchase to our blending methods that produce very little waste to the packaging we utilize, we always try to make our decisions not only on price but what is good for Mother Earth as well.

Several years ago, we made the decision to purchase packaging made from 100% recycled paper.  It is more expensive, but the positive impact is well worth it to me.

In fact, one of our suppliers, Pratt Industries monitors what effect our purchases have on the environment and in 2018, we were awarded an Environmental Impact Award.

Consider the following.

Using the recycled material, Absolutely Natural saved:

  • 163,100 gallons of water
  • 396 trees
  • 23 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere
  • 93,200 kilowatt hours of power
  • 77 cubic yards from landfills

These numbers are from Pratt alone and we buy about 50% of our boxes from other sources also utilizing 100% recycled paper, so the above numbers can be doubled.  320,000 gallons of water and almost 800 trees saved … not bad for our small company.

Now just think what impact there would be if all 30,000,000 small businesses in America followed suit. 

We can make a difference!

Best regards,
