By definition, sustainable products are those products that provide environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health and environment over their whole life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials until the final disposal.
At Matenara, we place value not just on the product, but on packaging as well.
Why sustainable packaging?
One of our goals at Matenara is not just to reduce, but to eliminate plastic waste altogether. By choosing sustainable materials like glass, metal, cloth, and paper to package our goods, we help reduce the energy and resources spent on recycling "reusable" plastic containers.
Sustainable packaging for us also means being able to provide you with multiple sizes for different purposes - either to try out a product before committing to a bigger quantity or to travel in a light and compact way.
Just recently, we partnered with Ranpak Philippines to secure our goods with eco-friendly wrapping and protect them from minor incidents. The die-cut paper expands into a pretty 3D honeycomb cushion that is 100% compostable.
We take our commitment one step further by shipping our goods via like-minded couriers like Fifth Express, who utilizes 100% compostable mailers.
We're proud to stay committed to the sustainable lifestyle from product to packaging to shipping and be able to share it with you.
