Environmental

Our planet and its environment are very special to us here at Skinny Malinkys. It's important to us that we give back to the planet that has given us so much.

Why do Skinny Malinkys use plastic bottles?

We do get asked about using plastic bottles and to be honest we would love to switch to a composable bottle but after carrying out a lot of research we discovered that most compostable bottles can only be composted at special composting facilities of which there are very few around the UK or Ireland. This means that the compostable bottles often end up contaminating other recyclables so then nothing gets recycled. We use the most recyclable food grade plastic available it’s called PET, we ask that once you have finished a juice you rinse the bottle with water, crush it and replace the cap, then pop it into any recycling bin.

How do Skinny Malinkys deliver their juice?

We have changed how we pack our juice in a bid to lower our carbon footprint and move to more recyclable packaging. We phased out all polystyrene boxes as not many councils actually recycled them. Now your juice will arrive in a recycled cardboard box (this may have random printing on it), by recycled we mean something else was shipped in it first, it is then stored for between 2-4 weeks then we use it to pack our juice cleanses. Inside every recycled box your juice will be kept super chilled in a thermo bubble envelope which you can reuse as a chill bag when getting your shopping. All thermo envelopes are new and your juice will be the first thing that they are used for. Inside each envelope we place ice packs, these can also be reused by placing them in the freezer and using in your thermo envelope or any cool bag or box.
