RECYCLING

NOMU is always improving our environmentally responsible, sustainable solutions for all of our packaging. Wherever possible we utilise only recycled board, paper and plastic and we always choose to work with local sources first to reduce or remove our carbon footprint.

‘Support local, protect local’ is the goal. And although we are all about the flavour, finding and working with innovative new packaging and packaging suppliers, sourced from as near to us as possible, remains a BIG part of our philosophy.

'Support local, protect local'

In South Africa, although sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging sources are always improving, it’s not always possible to find perfect solutions. We are simply not that close to much of the world’s best innovation in sustainable packaging.

There are also necessary safety and hygiene requirements and regulations that must always be followed, relating to allowed packaging materials. This is for the sake of ensuring highest quality and consistency, but also the safest protection of our products for our customers.

We do not believe that we have all the answers but we commit to always improving, wherever we can, always looking for better, environmental solutions whenever they become available.

What does the ‘FSC’ Logo mean?

It literally refers to ‘Forest Stewardship Council.’ In NOMU’s case it means that we purposefully always choose to use repurposed or recycled board only, avoiding new or ‘virgin’ board or paper on principle. This refers primarily to almost all of NOMU’s primary, paper-based packaging and labelling.

Recycling NOMU, practically.

We delight in finding fun and creative ways to re-use and re-purpose our packaging.

If you’re like us and also really don’t like throwing anything away, then may you will also LOVE hearing about odd or unusual NOMU packaging hacks.

Do you have any handy recycling tips to re-use NOMU packaging at home or in the office?
  • Why not properly wash and clean and then re-use our VANILLA PASTE and EXTRACT bottles as make-shift travel bottles for shampoo, or hand soap?
  • Make the kids repaint or just relabel any of our HOT CHOCOLATE tins to turn them into colourful fun and interactive pencil holders
  • What about using our RUB tins to pot a little pet cactus or succulent and use this as a thoughtful little desk gift?
  • Punch a few holes in the sides of our RUB Tins, you can fill these with soil and use them as cute and funky, small plants pots for shelf decoration or even a bit of small-scale urban farming in your home! A baby Chilli plant, anyone?
  • Wire a whole bunch of RUB tins together, punch a few extra holes and put candles inside to create a gorgeous, hanging chain lantern for your porch or balcony
  • Decanting from BULK! Perhaps you would like to use our KILO bags to decant into and re-use our RUB or Hot Chocolate tins. While the bags are not recyclable, they are produced locally, with a MUCH lower carbon footprint. They are also tough and if opened correctly, once they’re empty, they can then be washed, repurposed and re-used for storage! Same goes for our large volume plastic buckets or tubs!
