OUR PLASTIC NEUTRAL PROMISE
Removing as much plastic from nature as used in our products.
At Remix Snacks, we have a double sided mission of creating snacks that are good for you, and for the environment. This includes taking steps to decrease our environmental footprint in our packaging. Our partnership with rePurpose Global allows us to grow in our journey with sustainability, while continuing to look for permanent solutions.
-Isabelle Lam, Co-founder
The first step in our Plastic Neutral journey was to understand where we were in order to take informed future action. We did this by conducting a baseline assessment of the plastic used in our products and packaging to be conscious of our plastic footprint.
Using key insights from our plastic footprint assessment, we then worked with rePurpose Global to
develop a comprehensive roadmap to meet our plastic reduction goals, and explore alternatives to
build a more circular business model.
While we work towards reducing our plastic usage, we simultaneously fund the recovery of as much plastic waste from the environment as we produce in our products through our collaboration with rePurpose Global’s verified Impact Projects. These projects also empower waste workers on the frontline to tackle plastic waste in local communities.
IMPACT THAT UNITES THE WORLD
When we choose to take action on our plastic waste, we create meaningful impact in a world without borders. We may operate in Canada but our operations have a global impact. We fund waste
management facilities and empower local communities in geographies without the necessary infrastructure to remove, recover, and recycle plastic waste that would have otherwise remained in the
environment for centuries.
First, we work with vetted and experienced circular economy and waste management ventures. Next, we fund programs that enable these ventures to scale up plastic waste avoidance, removal, recovery, and recycling efforts. Finally, through thorough due diligence, we ensure adherence to global environmental and labor standards.
It takes an army to fight the ongoing plastic waste crisis, and with rePurpose Global, we are able to create tangible environmental and socio-economic impact. We’re not only helping remove plastic waste from the environment, but we’re also enabling steady livelihoods for forgotten waste workers across the globe.

OUR PLASTIC ACTION JOURNEY
STEP 1: SUSTABINABLE SOURCING
As a proud Canadian company, we work with local suppliers and distributors to source all of our ingredients. As part of our committment to the environment, we use upcycled, imperfect produce that would have otherwise ended up in landfills, to reduce food waste.
STEP 2: VERIFIED PLASTIC RECOVERY
We believe that businesses have the responsibility to positively impact the environment and society, and hence Remix Snacks has gone Plastic Neutral with rePurpose Global. Through our partnership, we are taking the first step to systemic change — financing waste management infrastructure and empowering marginalized workers fighting the plastic waste crisis on the frontline.
STEP 3: PLASTIC REDUCTION
At Remix Snacks, we are constantly trying to reduce our environmental impact and and footprint. By going Plastic Neutral, we are taking steps towards reducing our plastic output and minimizing our negative impact on the environment.
