Whilst there are carbon implications associated with posting your bottles back to us, we still believe that this does not outweigh the carbon saved by sterilising and reusing the bottles like for like, rather than them going through the energy intensive process of industrial recycling or worse, using virgin material. We are currently working with third party auditors to gather the data to support this - more to follow.
The scheme is also UK based only, so no air freight is involved, and we use Royal Mail who have the largest ‘feet on street’ network of post people (not using a vehicle) and have recently introduced zero emission e-trikes into their fleet.
We will be working to figure out a low carbon way of getting your bottles back to us if you are based internationally. Right now it’s a step in the right direction. We’re testing at small scale so that we’re able to quickly assess the impact and hopefully one day (soon), have a solution for BYBI fans all over the globe.
