Here at Borna, sustainability is not just what we do, it’s who we are, and has been integral to the business since it was founded in 2014. Some people are starting to join the environmentally-friendly bandwagon now, but we’ve been there from the beginning.
Our smooth and crunchy butters have always been packaged in glass jars, so there’s no pesky plastic for you to worry about it. Our jars are 100% recyclable (whereas plastic is only 46%) and can be repurposed in so many ways – they’re great for storage (they look aesthetically-pleasing full of pistachios, just saying) and are the perfect size for making candles. What do you do with your empty Borna jars?
To help the environment further, our pistachio drinks come in Tetra Pak packaging, which is made from entirely renewable and/or recycled materials and protects the nutritional value and taste of our products. It’s fully recyclable (without ever compromising on food safety requirements) to reduce our environmental impact.
Palm oil is in nearly everything we buy, and it’s a major cause of deforestation for some of the world’s most diverse rainforests, causing a number of species to become endangered, like the orangutan, pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhino – that’s why we never use it at Borna.
We’re also a proud member of Sedex, an organisation centred around managing labour rights, health and safety, and environmental and business ethics.
Our aim is to always try to be better, so if you have any ideas on how we can be even kinder to the environment, please get in touch.
