To you… and the ocean
We say NO to plastic …but we say YES to good health! So we carry this forward to our oceans as well. That’s why choosing to go entirely plastic free in our range is so important to us.
Coming from the “Land Down Under”, as remote as we are, we also experience the extra load plastic is playing on our coastal environments and habitats here as well. Not only do we pick up any plastic we see during our kelp collections but we flatly refuse to add any more ANYWHERE including landfill. We package all of our products in our refillable “kelp pods”. Our customers keep these (dont throw away and then refill with our refillable range. We have gone back to the old fashioned way of simply filling things back up.
Our refill range uses cellophane in our pod refill packs as it is a natural substance and completely biodegradable, this way it keeps mbK – Mystery Bay Kelp at its freshest with the lowest waste footprint.
Please join us in choosing products that are completely free of plastic packaging, as when consumers begin by making these choices in their regular shopping habits, only then will the retailers look for better environmental choices. In keeping with our plastic free commitments, our flat rate postage has new biodegradeable type plastic post satchel with tracking.
All our Pod refills are packaged with cellophane wrappers for complete and quick biodegrades !
We reuse any plastic packaging that we end up with in all our postage options. We reuse every piece of plastic, packing and carboard box that comes across our path. We put any overflow of soft plastic into Woolworths red bins in Narooma to be utilised to make other things.
Another option if you live locally, feel free to go completely postage and plastic free and collect direct from us! We are at our local growers market for direct purchase. We also offer click and collect for our Canberra customers as well. Abbotts seafood and Tilba Real Dairy at EPIC markets takes our online orders to Canberra for collection from the Southside growers market (Abbotts Seafood)
Looking to the future, we wish to commence and support coastal school initiatives, whereby we encourage plastic collection drives and sponsor the children to collect rubbish from their local beaches. Each kg or bucket of plastic and rubbish collected will be awarded dollars towards school projects ..watch this space 😉
Thanks for reading and Good Health,
