The indestructible, heavy duty, wide mouth, Nalgene Easy Grip, High Density PolyEthylene (HDPE ) bottles and jars are BPA free. These properties guarantee many years of continued re-use. And then, since they are made of colorless, easily melted HDPE, they will be recycled at their ultimate end of life.
These bottles do not cost all that much more than one way disposable containers when purchased in bulk.
In addition, instead of expensive, basic die cut labels from a print shop, we use really cheap labels we print ourselves. Amazingly, that saves a lot more money than you would think. And, it offsets most of the cost difference of the bottles. (You will know what I mean when you see the labels.)
The small, overall cost difference results in slightly less overall profit. But, in the end it is a “wash”. And, that is not a problem.
We do not have million dollar vice-presidents.
This concept is the practical application of paper I wrote many years ago for an environmental economics class. Now, I get to do it.
Painless, easy, essentially pro-enviro-impact.
Seems to be working...
