hint uses fully recyclable PET bottles.
we continue to investigate alternative packaging materials and bottling processes. however, we have found that the plant-based materials that we have considered require a lot of energy to produce and some are not recyclable. some of these materials are also susceptible to heat damage and therefore are often shipped in refrigerated trucks, which use additional fossil fuel, in order to minimize damage to the bottles. as these materials improve and their safety is established, we will consider switching materials.
our top priorities with respect to packaging choices are and will remain (1) providing the safest possible packaging that is suitable for our product and customers and (2) minimizing our impact on the environment.
