Our commitment to sustainability

As a small business, we do our very best to operate with integrity & sustainability every step of the way. From sourcing the best ingredients on the planet to ensuring our products offer the most bioavailable formulas, we’re always optimizing.

Today, we’re proud to announce that we’ve leveled up our sustainability journey and gonePlastic Neutral!

We’ve partnered with rePurpose Global to fund the collection, processing, and reuse of as much ocean-bound plastic waste as we use in our packaging. This means that every Amandean purchase will now carry aNet Zero Plastic Footprint.

When it comes to the ingredients in our products, we never compromise. We selectively source the best, and most sustainable ingredients available. The quality and purity of our ingredients are at the foundation of our success and health. From our Icelandic wild-caught Marine Collagen to our Vegan Omega-3 from USA-grown marine algae, the source, traceability, and performance of our products come down to a healthy environment.

However, our ingredients and premium formulas can be delicate. Storage conditions, such as high or low temperatures, light, or oxygen can compromise their stability & effectiveness. For this reason, plastic has remained our packaging material of choice. Plastic is the most durable and light-weight material that guarantees the quality of our products, improves their shelf life, and decreases the carbon footprint of their transportation costs. Although we are constantly sourcing and testing more eco-friendly alternatives, we haven’t found anything comparable to the BPA-free plastic containers we currently use. For this reason, going Plastic Neutral has allowed us to take a more 360-degree approach to sustainability.

The Way We Do It

Every time you buy an Amandean product, we donate money to plastic reduction efforts. Through our partnership with rePurpose Global, we are supportingWaste4Change, an Indonesian-based waste management social enterprise that collects and processes hard-to-recycle waste streams. One of the reasons we choseWaste4Change as our waste reduction partner is their 100% holistic approach to waste management. Their core services include: segregated waste collection from landfills and the ocean, waste management consulting and research, and responsible processing of collected waste, such as in-store recycling, extended producer responsibility, and event waste management.

It’s true that plastic and its disposal has been grossly mismanaged. RePurpose Global and its waste management partners support ethical wages to waste workers for collecting hard-to-recycle, low-value plastic waste items. This way, waste workers get fairly compensated for their important work, while diverting plastic waste that would have otherwise been landfilled, burned, or flushed into our oceans.

Transparency is one of our core values at Amandean. RePurpose Global employs strict verification measures - they conduct unannounced spot-checks, provide detailed reports of their progress, and ensure that theirPlastic Neutral Protocol is implemented no matter who they’re working with. This protocol is a set of operational guidelines that help waste management partners carry out their recycling operations in an ethical and efficient manner and ultimately maximize impact on the ground.

Our Next Steps

Our partnership with rePurpose Global is a critical step in our sustainability journey. We know that our customers give high value to protecting and preserving the planet and we want to honor that. Ultimately, we want a healthy planet for all of us.As our journey continues we’ll be sharing more tips, education, and resources from our plastic neutral community, as well as how to reduce our plastic footprint as individuals. Keep in touch by joining our online community and subscribing to our articles. We’ll also be sharing progress updates from our waste management partners.

"Mom, Dad, I got my acceptance letter! I'm going to Collagen College, home of the fighting Polypeptides!"  

In recent years, the benefits of collagen have begun to be recognized among those who are serious about their health and perhaps are wanting to explore an "alternative" diet like keto or paleo. If you already follow a paleo or keto diet, you might be interested to know how collagen and collagen peptides can ensure that you've got your amino-acid bases covered.

You might also be wondering if intermittent fasting is a passing fad, like television or the internet. Maybe you've got no one to discuss your autophagy with or whether your ketosis will prevent you from passing the MCTs. Relax, pour yourself a cup of bulletproof coffee, and let's take a little collagen break together. Your Collagen College orientation is about to begin!

Collagen supplements are used by skincare enthusiasts, new mothers,ultra-runners, recovering athletes, and bodybuilders alike. Liquid collagen was originally intended to be taken orally. Now, rather than just adding a bit of collagen to a moisturizer or eye cream, many people are wondering if you can get the same benefits by applying it directly to the skin. Though it's a fairly new product, here's what we know!
