The balance between providing the very best products, while having the smallest footprint possible, is a challenge for a company like ours. When RAWBEING was launched, we wanted to provide the finest organic nutritional, powders (and nibs) without the use of plastic. We also wanted to avoid the use of over or unnecessary packaging.
Plastic can sometimes be hard to avoid and its great to see so many people and companies becoming aware of how our consumerism is really taking its toll on our planet.
So…we have decided to make an adjustment to one of our products and also to go in a slightly different direction. We have now added an internal, fully compostable and biodegradable bag to our maca powder. Due to the natural properties of our 100% pure organic maca powder, without any additives or preservatives, naturally it can harden. The hardening of the maca powder does not affect it’s quality in any way and can easily be worked back into a perfect powder, within the bag.
This bag is the very best there is, being fully compostable, biodegradable and made in the UK from cellophane film that has been accredited biodegradable & compostable to 'BS EN 13432' and 'OK Compost'. The bags are also approved for Anaerobic digestion (ISO 15985) & Marine biodegradation ASTM D6691-09. The film has been tested to ensure that once composted there are no adverse effects on plant growth. This has not been a decision that has been made lightly but we feel it is a necessary one to keep the Maca from its natural hardening process.
We believe this is the best solution and inline with our company ethos.
