Sustainability accounting is a core principle of how we are building Vibe Mushrooms. As consumers we all have an impact on the Earth and it’s our duty as empathetic operators to understand what the impact is and make responsible decisions to help move the sustainability needle. Here are a few ways we are currently doing just that.
Kill the Bottle is just one of our commitments to sustainable practices. We are proud to take a stand against the overuse of plastic bottles in the wellness space. How many bottles a month are you throwing away? If you’re anything like us, you likely have had an entire cupboard or shelf dedicated to supplements. At Vibe, we decided to try something different. Currently we use recyclable stand-up flexible packaging that reduces plastic by 80%. Pouches also rely on much less storage and transportation carbon outputs.
But even this is not our ultimate solution, and we are striving hard to bring to market our fully compostable packaging solution in the very near future.
We take our packaging very seriously and value the progressive partnership we have with Rootree. Currently we are using recyclable material and are working closely with them to move towards a fully compostable solution.
Trees Plantedevery month
Tonnes of COreduced every month
We have partnered with Ecologi and are committed to planting 1,440 trees and reducing 172.8 tonnes of CO2 every year! As we grow you can bet we’ll be scaling this proportionately. So, with every Vibe Mushroom extract purchase you make, we’ll be contributing to help offset impact on the Earth.
To help spread the awareness of living more empathetically with our Plant we have partnered with Random Acts of Green. This organisation provides tools to help educate people how they can help offset her or his carbon footprint. It’s a wonderful ‘gamified’ community we are absolutely thrilled be associated with.
Operationally we are a paperless company. This means by reducing our reliance on paper allows you to create a more sustainable business. Even with recycling, the amount of paper used in U.S. offices grows 20% a year. The average employee uses an astounding 10,000 sheets of copy paper per year. Vibe Mushrooms strives contribute to the well-being of the environment by not use paper in our operations. The only paper you’ll find is in our shipments to help protect the products from damage and we are working towards an even more sustainable solution.
Beyond paper, the printer, ink, and ink cartridges are harmful to the environment as well. It takes over 3 quarts of oil to create a laser printer and inkjet cartridges. Printers and ink also contain potentially harmful chemicals that, if disposed of improperly, pollute water and soil and contribute to the spread of ecological damage.
