Sustainability

Sustainability is a core value in everything we do.

A Commitment to Progress

We continually strive to improve the sustainability of our business in all aspects, from manufacturing and packaging to shipping. Here are some of the latest initiatives we've implemented to reduce our environmental footprint and support our local community.


Reusable Scoops

We introduce Stainless Steel Reusable Scoops for our Protein Powders, Bone Broth, and Teas. These durable and eco-friendly scoops are designed to provide you with the perfect amount of product in every serving, ensuring consistency and convenience.

Made from high-quality stainless steel, these scoops are not only built to last but also easy to clean and maintain. By switching to reusable scoops, we are taking another step towards reducing single-use plastic waste and promoting sustainable practices.

Switched from Plastic Tubs to Tin and Cardboard Cans

Originally, we packaged our products in plastic tubs, but we recognized the need for a more sustainable approach.

In 2021, we made a significant transition to using reusable cans crafted from cardboard and tin, a move certified by the FSC ✔️. These cans not only offer durability but also promote eco-consciousness. Perfect for refilling and securely storing your favourite Mitchells Bone Broth and Collagen products, they represent our commitment to sustainability and quality.

Mitchells Nutrition Shipping & Handling

Recyclable & Compostable Courier Bags & Boxes

Our smaller orders used to be shipped in plastic courier bags, which hindered our sustainability efforts. In 2021, we switched to paper and compostable courier bags, which can be recycled or placed in a compost bin for those who have one at home.

For larger orders, we use boxes sealed with plastic-free kraft tape and filled with paper protection packing. All of these materials are recyclable and compostable.

Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme

Our Protein Powder 500g, Protein Powder Sample Sachets, 100g Bone Broth Powder pouches and tea pouches are soft plastic recyclable. In 2021, we joined the Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme, which repurposes clean soft plastic pouches into products like fence posts, ducting, and floor tiles. While we'd prefer our pouches to be home compostable, current technology doesn't yet allow for the required quality and longevity.

Soft plastic collection bins are available at selected Countdown, The Warehouse, New World, and Pak'n'Save stores across New Zealand. Find your closest collection point here.

How to recycle your soft plastics:

  1. Wash out the pouch.
  2. Let it dry.
  3. Drop it off at a collection bin on your next shopping trip.

In 2022, the Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme collected 563 tonnes of post-consumer soft plastics, a 50% increase from previous years, with over 250 participating stores. This effort helps divert plastic from landfills and back into useful products.

Refill Pouches

In our ongoing efforts to minimise packaging and reduce waste, we’re excited to introduce refill pouches for our organ supplement range. These eco-friendly pouches are designed to be both convenient and sustainable.

Refilling your existing jar or tub is simple. Ensure your container is clean and dry, then cut open the refill pouch. Pour the contents into your container and seal it tightly. Dispose of the empty pouch responsibly, following local recycling guidelines.

The Future Of Mitchells Nutrition

As we embrace advancing technology, our commitment deepens to uncovering more sustainable options. We're dedicated to understanding and mitigating our environmental impact, driven by our desire to tread lightly on the Earth and leave a positive legacy for future generations.
