GILBERT, Ariz., April 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company
Switching IsaLean and IsaPro canisters to PCR plastic is anticipated to cost Isagenix nearly $500,000 more annually, a cost the company will absorb and not pass on to customers.
"We're passionate about reducing our environmental footprint, and we believe we can make the greatest immediate impact by sourcing sustainable packaging options, as Isagenix ships millions of products to customers each year," said Erik Coover, Isagenix board member and senior vice president of global field development and culture. "While our bottles and canisters were already recyclable, transitioning to 100 percent PCR plastic allows us to reduce plastic waste even further because no new plastic is created for PCR containers. It's a significant and exciting milestone for Isagenix."
Other recent sustainability efforts at Isagenix include installation of photovoltaic solar panels on parking lot shade structures at the company's 162,000-square-foot headquarters in Gilbert, Arizona. The new solar-power system went live this month and is expected to produce more than 57,700 kilowatt hours per year, allowing clean energy to power one-third of the company's headquarters.
In addition, rather than selling bottled water in the Gilbert office cafeteria, Isagenix provides employees with personalized insulated water bottles and has water refill stations throughout the building. The Gilbert location also offers disposable utensils, plates, and cups that are recyclable or compostable.
"Being good stewards of the earth's resources is important to our employees, customers, and independent distributors, so we're truly honored to do our part to protect the planet, now and for future generations," Coover said.
