Neora™ Intensifies our Commitment to Reducing our Carbon Footprint​

By May 6, 2019Culture

Neora Cares About the Environment.

We believe every day is Earth Day and that’s why we make every effort to reduce our carbon footprint. From our products to our practices to our people, we believe caring for the environment is an essential part of our dedication to helping people lead better lives. Neora is committed to the well-being of the planet through sustainable packaging, recycling and conscientious sourcing methods.

A 50% Paper Reduction in Skincare and EHT Packaging!

One of our biggest examples is in our skincare and EHT® Brain Formula wellness supplement packaging. All of our three-part product boxes have been converted to origami-style product boxes. By changing from three-part boxes and their paper inserts to no-glue boxes with the product information printed on the inside, our paper use is reduced by 50%. And, because the new packaging doesn’t require glue, that means we use one less processing machine, which further reduces our carbon footprint. The Youth Factor® tablet box was also redesigned to use less paper, as well. The best part? Neora packaging is still beautiful and luxurious, appropriate for a prestige line like Neora – and the origami-style packaging makes you feel like you’re opening a lovely gift whenever you break out a new product.

Making It Easier to Recycle

Recycling can be complicated. That’s why at Neora we have simple Recycling Guides for our Brand Partners to use and share that show which parts of our products’ packaging – bottles, tubes, jars, pumps, lids, boxes, etc. – are recyclable, and which are not. We also add new guides as we add new products and update packaging. Of course, we’re always striving to use more packaging that recycles, and we work with our sourcing partners to find more eco-friendly solutions as they become available.

A Culture of Caring at Neora Headquarters

Our Neora HQ is not only beautiful, but we have made strides on keeping our work site green! We have a dedicated Neora Green Team and we’ve implemented many changes in our procedures. Our office recycling program extends well beyond white paper, to include plastics 1-7, aluminum cans, tin cans, plastic water bottles, batteries and a much broader variety of paper. Our coffee system uses biodegradable pods, and we’ve even paid attention to the little things, such as replacing individual creamers with one large bottle. We’ve stopped using paper cups (most of which were not recyclable) to reusable plates, mugs and silverware. And, we use LED lights with dimmer switches throughout the office. We’re also working to educate the home team about recycling in the community and ways they can recycle better at home.

We Believe in Doing Our Part

We’re excited by the steps we’ve taken to make Neora more eco-friendly, and although we know that there’s still much to do, we’re looking forward to taking even more steps to reduce our carbon footprint in the future!
