Saveboard, building a circular economy

Saveboard, building a circular economy

This is what change looks like. Literally. This is our packaging, 95% renewable sourced, which after its been used for its primary task of lovingly carrying oat m!lk, has then been broken down and given another life as a much needed high quality building product for the NZ construction industry. This is what change looks like.

The biggest emitter of green house gases, as we all know, is our friends at the oil and gas companies. The oil extracted from the ground releases massive amounts of carbon into the atmosphere and is a primary driver of the climate mess we have got ourselves into today. What’s made from oil? Plastic PET packaging, sh*t is nasty. Although there’s a lot of propaganda that plastic is fantastic and highly recyclable, the simple truth is it’s complete life cycle analysis in terms of carbon footprint is one of the worst of the bunch. It’s oil.

Putting our $$ where our mouth is, this past week @otisoatmilk , along with @tetrapak commissioned a baler for Environment Centre Hawkes Bay, which takes Tetra Pak style packaging from the region, bails it up, and delivers it to @saveboardnz in order for it to close the loop and be turned into building materials. This is what change looks like.

Want to be part of the change? Choose oat over dairy, choose tetra over plastic, and more importantly spread the word around this incredible initiative by @saveboardnz which will one day become part of the kerbside collection nationwide.
