Being an organic based company, we chose to use powdered formulas such as Baby’s Only Organic® formulas and PediaSmart® because they are friendlier to the environment than ready-to-feed or concentrated liquid products. Liquid products contain a great deal of water. So when shipping these types of product from factory to distribution outlets and stores, on an ounce per ounce basis, it will cost much more to ship a liquid product, more trucks would be needed, more gasoline is used, and gas emissions are increased. If these liquid products are not produced in the USA, transportation costs with their resulting non-green effects greatly increase. More energy is used in to manufacture ready-to-feed and concentrated liquid products. Also, liquid products use more packaging material which ultimately results in increased waste trucked to landfills. In addition, customer feedback has been enthusiastic regarding traveling with our powdered formulas. Being in powder form, they are “TSA friendly” when going through airport security and weigh less to travel with as compared to a liquid equivalent.
Baby’s Only Organic® formulas and PediaSmart® are all made in the USA. They are powdered products packaged in composite canisters. Composite canisters are good for the environment. They are recyclable and on average contain 50% recycled content, 35% of which is post-consumer recycled materials. Composite cans are light weight because they are made of paperboard instead of tin. This reduces environmental waste and energy used in manufacturing and transportation.
Nature's One® uses recyclable materials for all of its products and encourages customers to recycle. The use of powdered Baby’s Only Organic® formulas and PediaSmart® reduces packaging, environmental waste and energy used in manufacturing and transportation.
