At Applied Biological Laboratories, we are committed to the sourcing, development, and use of packaging solutions that have minimal environmental impact and footprint. We make all of our packaging recyclable to the extent possible:
- Spray bottles made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with no chemical coloring.
HDPE is accepted at most recycling centers in the world, as it is one of the easiest plastic polymers to recycle
- Aluminum in our lozenge blister packs is made from recycled aluminum
- Cartons are made from standard printed paperboard with a UV gloss. No other laminates or coatings are added so that the package may be easily recycled with standard cardboard recycling.
All of our products are made from 100% natural sources with traceable origins and sound practices. We highlight forward-thinking environmental practices and flag known risky commodities and sourcing geographies.
- All of our ingredients are plant-based when possible.
- Our lactoferrin is isolated from bovine milk and our lysozyme is isolated from chicken egg whites.
- We never use animal testing in our product development
Low Carbon Footprint
We are very aware of our products’ impact on the environment and have been working with our contract manufacturing (CMO) partners to calculate the exact carbon footprint created by the sourcing, manufacturing of each product we make. We offset any net positive carbon footprint with activities that help the environment.
Applied Bio is partnering with IPP Solar, one of the largest solar development companies and owner of solar assets in Northeast U.S. to supply our CMO partners with a “contract for differences” with 100% energy from renewable sources.
