In today’s world, it can feel overwhelming knowing what harm we are causing to the environment for the sake of our comfort. When we launched PunkMedics Inc. we wanted to take a proactive approach to deliver sustainable, ethical and all natural products for our customers.
We are also committed to environmental accountability and sustainability. We strive to eliminate waste by rethinking our manufacturing processes to create a sustainable approach to resource recovery, product design, and recycling. From the start of the development and design process of each product sustainability and the product’s ecological footprint is considered.
Our goal is to use eco-friendly packaging materials, use natural and organic ingredients, utilize alternative energy sources, and minimize our ecological footprint.
Where possible we source all our ingredients from suppliers within North America and ensure they are Fair Trade Certified.
We use Digital Label Printing technology to cut back waste. Most film and label materials are made of petroleum and petrochemicals, our eco-friendly labels are made of a corn-based alternative with Water-based adhesives making them easier to remove for package recycling. We also use a water-based, solvent free ink in our label designs.
We use a 100% North American made, High-density polyethylene (HDPE) bottle with a high percentage of postconsumer recycled (PCR) content that is 100% recyclable
We do not offer print based catalogs and instead provide a very comprehensive e-commerce based website with detailed information on all our products. Our paper-based promotions are printed on 100% post-consumer content. The printing is done with soybean-based inks, and absolutely no petroleum or solvent-based solutions were used in the production.
Zero Waste Company
PunkMedics Inc. is a successful “Zero Waste” company where any perceived materials which might be regarded as waste are either recycled, reused, composted, reclaimed, or brought back into the production cycle. Our non-recyclable waste amounts to one garbage bag a month.
We use recycled post-consumer newsprint to cushion your order, our boxes used for shipment are made from post-consumer corrugation material with a minimum of 25% PCR material, and the peanuts which are occasionally used in our parcels are salvaged from other companies that ship to us.
Chemical Free Facility
PunkMedics Inc. does not use, nor condone the use of chemical cleaning agents, or other synthetic agents which are harmful to ourselves and the environment. All cleaning products used within our facilities are 100% natural, bio-degradable and are approved for use within certified organic facilities.
PunkMedics Inc. is proud to have converted to 100% renewable energy by transferring its conventional electrical power usage to renewable energy sources through Bullfrog Power as well as purchasing carbon credits.
