What choices do we do - and how do we, as a small company, navigate to ensure our contribution to a sustainable production?
We aim for sustainability and responsibility
In every production decision, LoveMade aims for sustainability and we wish to take responsibility for the planet we live on.
We go by a minimum impact principle, and through this approach our manufacturer has reduced the weight of our packaging by 60% over the last couple of years.
Our choice of packaging
The packaging for our baby meals is already a successfully used packaging for baby food in the UK and USA. With this packaging we are able to offer a modern and convenient solution, where we do not have to compromise on the taste and structure of the food.
The recyclable plastic jars are PP05, free of BPA and are suitable for both microwave and dishwasher, which makes them easy to reuse.
We do not have plastic lids for this packaging, to minimize consumption and instead we encourage to reuse the jar with a suitable recyclable silicone lid.
With experience from our previous packaging, we have now chosen to use the same recyclable, transparent plastic jar (without an integrated design) for ALL our meals. This means that we minimize consumption and scrap in production, as it creates more flexibility. Another advantage is that there is no expiration date on the plastic jar itself, which means that there will be no waste of packaging at any time.
Our FSC certificate ensures that we use reusable carton as well as wood and paper from sustainable sources.
Our contributions to the forest stewardship council help turn our mindset about taking sustainable responsibility into action, and it indicates our unwavering support to the forest owners who chose to manage their forests with respect for humanity and nature.
As technology on the market currently stands, it is not yet possible to detect the presence of glass in a glass jar with 100% certainty and reliability (including glass needles). However the foreign body risk in plastic trays, which is what LoveMade uses, is far more mastered.
These are just a few of the reasons behind our choices.
However we know that as long as there is not a biodegradable packaging solution for the production of our organic baby meals, we will not be 100% satisfied.
We pledge to continue striving for innovative ways to be responsible for our planet.
