We recognise that by making products, we will always have some impact on the environment. We are constantly striving to do better in all areas of our company, from products to packaging.
In New Zealand, approximately 40% of recyclable plastic and 58% of packaging still ends up in a landfill.Learn More
Unfortunately, there is no perfect solution when it comes to packaging within our category. Though cardboard, our tubs contain a food-grade foil lining to ensure our product’s freshness, and this part cannot be recycled until it is separated from the cardboard. Therefore, our packaging isn’t accepted by all councils, and is not fully recyclable.
A Second Life
Introducing the Two Islands Recycling Programme. A recycling initiative to divert packaging from landfill and help eliminate the idea ofwaste. By partnering with TerraCycle we can do our bit to ensure that our packaging is completely broken down into its individual components, and then kept in circularity by being repurposed into usable new products, out of items that would have simply been thrown out.Learn More
Trees That Count
By creating paper-based packaging, we recognise the impact we are having on the environment, which is why we have partnered with Trees that Count — a conservation charity with the vision of helping plant 200 million native trees across New Zealand.Learn More
We donate a portion of every Two Islands tub sold to Trees That Count in recognition of our environmental impact.
No Waste Spared
Marine collagen is considerably more sustainable than bovine or porcine derived collagen, with far less environmental impact.
Wild-caught from the pristine waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, the marine collagen we use is sustainably sourced from Norway, and is a natural by-product of the fishing industry, which would otherwise go to waste.Learn More
MSC Approved Marine Collagen
Two Islands marine collagen is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) approved, meaning it is from a verified sustainable source. MSC certification is an independent and transparent process, where only fisheries that meet the rigorous requirements get certified.Learn More
At Two Islands, we’re committed to doing our part towards a healthier future not only for ourselves, but also our planet – not just today, but every day.
