Paper microtubes have several benefits over foil sachets for collagen supplements. First, paper microtubes are more environmentally friendly than foil sachets. Foil sachets are made from non-renewable resources and are not easily recyclable, while paper microtubes are made from renewable resources and are more easily recyclable.
Second, paper microtubes offer better protection for collagen supplements. Collagen is a sensitive protein that can be damaged by light, heat, and moisture. Paper microtubes offer better protection against these factors, ensuring that the collagen remains fresh and effective.
Third, paper microtubes are more convenient for consumers. Foil sachets can be difficult to open, can leave a mess and force the user to consume the whole dose in one go while paper microtubes are easy to open and can be resealed for easy storage.
Overall, the use of paper microtubes for collagen supplements offers a more environmentally friendly, protective, and convenient packaging option for consumers.
Putting high quality wild marine collagen into paper microtubes is a sustainable and eco-friendly solution for collagen supplements that’s better for our planet. Marine collagen, derived from wild fish, is a natural source of collagen that is rich in essential amino acids and promotes healthy skin, hair, and joints. It's the only form of collagen that's free from GMOs, steroids and antibiotics. Paper microtubes give greater control and more freedom to infuse collagen supplements the way you want. Better for you. Better for our planet.
Wild About Wild
Not all "wild" collagen is actually wild. Some companies may market their collagen as "wild" when in reality it is farmed in an environmentally damaging way employing cages anchored at sea. This form of aquaculture is often described as 'wild-farmed'. The term can be misleading exploiting consumer misconceptions around the word 'wild'. Farmed fish are often raised in crowded conditions leading to the use of antibiotics and other chemicals. There is no advantage to raising fish in cages at sea over raising fish in tanks on land but it can have negative impacts on the surrounding ecosystem. Farmed fish may not have the same nutritional profile as wild-caught fish because their diet is limited and not from wild sources. This, in turn, can compromise the quality of the collagen.
The Folly of Foil
Paper microtubes, made from sustainable and biodegradable materials, provide an environmentally friendly alternative to foil packaging. They can be easily disposed of without contributing to plastic pollution. Paper microtubes are lightweight, compact and easy to manufacture reducing the carbon footprint of the product. When we designed our packaging we were mindful of recycling attrition rates. If packaging papers are laminated to other materials, such as plastic or foil, it compromises the recyclability of the paper known as ‘attrition’. Our microtubes have no foil or toxic chemical linings so they are easy to recycle. Laminated materials, such as plastic or foil, are difficult to recycle as they require special processes to separate the different layers. Many recycling facilities are not equipped to handle laminated materials, which can lead to them ending up in landfills. This is why our paper microtubes are not laminated with plastic, foil or chemical linings. They are easily recycled along with your other paper products.
In Australia, paper has a relatively high recycling rate compared to other materials. However, when paper is laminated with plastic or foil, it becomes much more difficult to recycle. The recycling rate drops significantly and the attrition rate goes up. This is because laminated materials cannot be easily separated during recycling leading to contamination of recycled materials. There is a strong commitment within industry and government to keep recycling programs evolving. There’s also exciting developments happening in food packaging through the use of biodegradable materials. Collagen Stickz do not use foils or toxic chemical linings. We keep our mixed materials separate to maximise recycling rates. Using paper microtubes instead of foil sachets can help conserve resources and reduce the environmental impacts of choosing to use a collagen supplement.
