3 reasons why larger pack sizes are economically & environmentally friendlier

Have you noticed our unconventionally larger sized packs? Did you know they contain 4 times the number of servings and grams compared to shop bought standard size packs? 

There are good reasons why we chose to stand out from the crowd and, for those wondering - no, we're not four times the price!

As we we set out on our UnbelievaBowl adventure, we became aware of the environmental impact packaging and materials has on the environment. We therefore decided to reduce the materials required to make our products in order to ensure they were more economically and environmentally friendly. But how does this work?

1) Environment 
By eliminating the need to produce 4 standard size packs, less packaging material per gram is required to hold the equivalent amount of ingredients. This renders a reduction in the energy footprint during the production process. Larger bags also pack more densely onto vans & lorries when compared to individually packed items of lesser quantities and fewer deliveries to the consumer, result in less transportation and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
2) Saves money
Typically, gram for gram products bought in larger quantities (bulk) are less costly than if they were bought in smaller quantities.
Because larger packs require less material and print production costs, the cost per serving is often lower to reflect this when compared to cost per serving of smaller packed products on the market. Why buy 4 separate packs when you can buy one larger bag - often it's because we don't have the choice!
3) Time saving & convenient 
We’re all short on time and looking for more convenient ways to shop. Larger packs translates to fewer repeat orders and less trips to the supermarket to stock up, saving you time, money, energy and petrol.

    Room for improvement

    STOP - we know! Ok, so we're not perfect. There are areas we can improve on, of course our aim is to have 100% plastic free packaging one day.  Currently, our packaging is 40% less plastic, however, we are in contact with suppliers for suitable alternatives – we’re on the case, they just need serious minimum order quantities and we're not quite there yet.
