Isagenix International has partnered with TerraCycle to recycle its product packaging that is not easily recyclable at local municipalities. The company’s investment in this collaboration, as well as other sustainable packaging improvements is a “six-figure investment” that will also cover shipping costs for U.S. customers who want to send in specific Isagenix packaging materials to TerraCycle, who specializes in hard-to-recycle waste.
This initiative, planned to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, is part of the company’s goal for all of its packaging components to be made with recyclable, reusable, compostable, or recycled materials by 2028. Currently, 75% of the company’s packaging components are recyclable or compostable.
“We’re beyond excited to partner with TerraCycle as part of our journey to zero waste packaging,” said Isagenix Chief Visionary Officer Erik Coover. “Our U.S. customers will have a terrific way to help recycle Isagenix packaging that is not yet sustainable while we continue making progress toward our zero-waste goal. This is a great opportunity to work together to take better care of the Earth so we can provide a better future for our kids.”
The company’s sustainability initiatives also include efforts to design more sustainable shipping and sourcing practices, as well as green efforts at its headquarters, like the solar panels installed in the parking areas that now power 25% of the building with clean energy. The company also recently switched from boxes to cardboard trays when moving shake canisters from third-party manufacturers to its distribution centers, saving 1 million square feet of cardboard in 2020.
