Are the pouches recyclable?

At this time, our pouches are not recyclable. Despite the fact the they cannot be recycled, our pouches offer numerous environmental benefits over glass jars and other alternatives. Pouches have a lower overall environmental impact than glass (a 10% lower carbon footprint!), Tetrapak, and PET plastic bottles. They are lighter and more compact for transportation, and therefore cause less emissions; there is also significantly less packaging waste.

Despite these benefits, we are still concerned about the recyclability of our pouches and are continually working towards alternatives and up-cycle programs to help reduce the waste. The plastic caps are recyclable in most cities, #2.
