As a manufacturer of spices, partnering with a supplier that provides recyclable spice grinders is essential. In today’s world, plastic production has reached massive levels. Pollution has become a global crisis. Cheap, non-recyclable plastics very quickly end up in landfills, before being released into rivers, oceans and other ecosystems. Even glass can end up in landfills, rather than being recycled. Beyond the environmental impact of non-recyclable spice grinders, there are many other factors that make sustainability a major concern.
Wholesale Spice Grinders and Sustainability
The primary ways that sustainability should be top of mind when choosing wholesale spice grinders include the following:
As we briefly mentioned above, the effect of plastics and other non-recyclable or reusable materials has been devastating. From a global perspective, non-consumables have resulted in major pollution – not just in urban areas but also in protected areas. Plastics especially put entire ecosystems at risk, affecting wildlife, marine life, birdlife, and natural environments. When choosing plastic grinder bottles, always choose bottles made of PET. These can be recycled and pose a far reduced risk to the environment compared to other types of plastics. Glass bottles are also an excellent choice, as glass can be recycled over and over again.
Sustainability goes beyond the environment. There are many regulations concerning the use of disposable materials that cannot be recycled. Although it is not technically illegal to use bottles or grinder tops that cannot be fully recycled, you may need to comply with certain regulations if you are seeking ISO certification or other globally recognised quality certification. Failure to comply with any requirements regarding sustainability may end up preventing you from achieving certification.
Even if sustainability is not required for compliance, it will certainly affect the way that your customers perceive your business. As consumers become more aware of their environmental footprint and services such as composting and recycling become the norm, a growing number of consumers are choosing products according to their commitment to sustainability. In many cases, non-recyclable product containers and packaging are associated with cheap, once-off products rather than quality products that have values aligned with consumers. When sustainability is taken seriously and included within brand values and mission, there is a far better chance of increasing business reputation and developing a loyal consumer base. Sustainable products can also attract new customers who are seeking products that are fully sustainable, from spices to bottles, grinders and packaging.
