Why pouches?

It's counterintuitive, but refilling with a plastic pouch reduces plastic and greenhouse gas emissions compared to recycling glass containers.

There are three factors at play here:

  1. Glass weighs tons more than plastic — literally.
  2. Recycling glass involves shipping it around the world.
  3. Glass containers have tops that can't be recycled, so we reuse them.

Using a pouch to refill a glass container just once creates 115% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to recycling it and buying a new one.

The more you refill it, the better for our planet.
