UPLEAFS Packaging Recycling

Packaging is a necessary component for convenience and safety of product delivery. Choosing the right packaging materials can be challenging because of cost, size, and just overall aesthetic appeal.

We try to select packaging that is produced from recycled material or can be recycled. This is not always possible for every component, but we continue to push forward to research solutions that are a better option for our customers and the environment.

Though recycling rates have increased over the years, the US still only recycles about 35% of its discarded materials.  (Source: EPA Website)

Our products include product labels, packaging, and website product details include instructions on proper disposal to help with any confusion on what can be recycled and what should be placed in the waste disposal. Below is a breakdown of materials used in our product packaging.

GLASS – Products like our oil drops and topicals (balms and lotions) are filled in glass bottles and jars. We use amber color glass to keep light out to protect the contents and maintain beneficial ingredient properties. These glass containers can be recycled. Please rinse or wipe before placing in the correct receptacle.

DROPPERS – Our oil drops come with marked droppers for easy dosage. Because these droppers are made with mixed materials, it cannot be recycled.  The glass portion of the dropper can be removed from the cap and rubber bulb.  There are some creative ways to reuse the droppers and bottle for essential oils or craft projects. The internet has some nifty ideas if you do a search!

PLASTIC CONTAINERS – We package our larger count capsules in plastic bottles made with HDPE plastic, commonly used for supplements and pharmaceutical products. HDPE plastic is accepted at most recycling centers and is considered one of the easiest plastic polymers to recycle.

POUCHES – Our gummies, smaller count capsule quantities, and samples are packaged in pouches because it uses less material than container packaging. Pouches require minimal plastic to make, are not as heavy, which means less weight and space in shipment, are easier for storage, and allow a better seal to protect contents. The downfall of our pouches is that it is not recyclable. We do have plans to transition to a recyclable material.

PROTECTION (Bands/Liners) – Products like our oil drops (tincture bottles) and capsule bottles have a heat-sealed plastic band around the cap and bottle. This plastic is not recyclable. We also use a foam liner for sealing protection with our topicals and our capsules.  Please dispose of these materials.

LABELS – Our labels are made with a polypropylene material that is durable against water and oils. Though this label cannot be recycled, it is removable. The adhesive is not as tacky as regular labels, which allows you to easily remove labels and recycle the container.

SHIPPING MATERIALS – We use corrugated boxes that can be reused or recycled. Items shipped in kraft mailers are made from recycled natural brown paper; only the paper, if removed from the bubble protection, can be recycled. We do not use additional plastics or popcorn fillers in our shipments.

I love the gummies, they taste good and are so convenient, I eat a couple of them a couple times a day.

1st Time CBD User

I was skeptical about using CBD products until I saw the way my friends very old dog was able to walk up the stairs without pain after using it for only a couple of days, I’ve noticed that I sleep better and I seem to be recovering better from workouts.

Better Sleep

Started using 2 months ago before bed to see if it would help with sleep. Doing so much better, sleeping thru the night now. Highly recommend.

Love this Rub! Really Works!!

I’m a very active individual and deal with muscle aches and pains on a regular basis. I have tried many different rubs in the past and Upleafs has been the best by far! The balm is non-greasy and the scent is enough to be soothing yet not over-powering. But the number one reason for the 5 Stars is that it really works! Should be 10 Stars! I have found true relief with this product and I also like that you know exactly what you are getting. Other rubs I have tried don’t list their CBD content and are hit and miss when it comes to results.

Like the softgels for my trips

Love these softgels to take on my travel and put in my pill box. I will be buying more! The dosage works perfect for me. I take one pill in the morning and one at night instead of one serving together.
