Plastic Bank’s Partnership with Natreve

Plastic Bank partners with Natreve to bring wellness products and sustainability together

Natreve is the first carbon and plastic neutral wellness company. They are on a mission to be the world’s most sustainable wellness company that continues to change lives for the better. As makers of vegan, whey, and animal-free whey protein powders and wellness drink mixes, Natreve is making sustainable choices to make our world a cleaner place. Through our partnership, Natreve will stop over 1.2 million kilograms of plastic from entering our world’s oceans – equivalent to over 60 million single-use plastic bottles. In 2021, Natreve began sponsoring a collection branch in Indonesia, which is helping improve the lives of local collectors!

Eat Right, Do Good

Natreve is the first wellness brand to become Certified Plastic Neutral by Plastic Bank. This means that Natreve is helping remove the equivalent amount of plastic from the environment than used in their protein powder packaging. By providing sustainable wellness products to everyone, consumers can feel good about how their supplements are produced, and how their purchase helps the environment. Natreve is proud to be stopping plastic from entering the oceans while improving lives in vulnerable communities in partnership with Plastic Bank.
