Are the Spatone satchets recyclable
Unfortunately our sachets are not currently recyclable, but without them we wouldn’t be able to put the product on the market. The unique composition of Spatone presents us with a number of challenges in terms of compatibility with packaging materials.
In order to meet the legislative requirements for placing such products on the market, we must ensure that it is packed in materials that keep the product fresh and within specification throughout its shelf life.
Spatone is naturally occurring and iron-rich, so as soon as it is exposed to the air (oxygen) it starts to oxidise. This is why we package Spatone in one daily sachet, so that it is always 'fresh' and provides a source of iron for your daily needs. To date, a recyclable and convenient to use sachet format does not exist that has this protection from air.
As a naturally inspired company, we are doing our best to reduce waste in Spatone packaging, as well as in our other products.
