Solgar and the Environment

Solgar Carbon Neutral

Caring for the Environment
SOLGAR VITAMIN AND HERB is a global company with global concerns, not least the impact we all have on the environment both professionally and personally. This is why we go to such great lengths to use glass bottles that we guarantee are 100% recyclable. These bottles also maintain the potency and stability of our nutrients and herbs. The packing materials we use for deliveries are recycled egg cartons and newspaper off-cuts of recycled paper that we source from local companies. Even the Solgar boxes are made from environmental grade cardboard.

CARBONNEUTRAL® deliveries
SOLGAR VITAMIN AND HERB has been committed to its CarbonNeutral® programme [in partnership with the CarbonNeutral® company] since 2000 and has planted approximately 10,000 tree saplings to counter its carbon emissions for its deliveries and company cars. In 2005 Solgar decided to expand its CarbonNeutral® initiative to include investments in carbon credit offset projects and has since invested in projects across the globe, including wind farms and solar energy schemes.

Small changes - Big differences

We all know that we can make small changes to make big differences and Solgar is no exception. With this is mind, at our manufacturing facility, we use purified water and friendly ‘green' cleaners when preparing equipment between manufacturing batches. Our facility is also equipped with noise reduction baffles and an exhaust filtration system to help minimise the environmental impact. We even have our own ‘Green' quality checking of collateral and media material, making sure our office papers and marketing materials are all produced as environmental grade/recycled papers.
