We want to reduce the amount of waste that goes towards landfills in Singapore. Your clean bottles and cooler bags can be collected from your residence with your next delivery. Clean bottles will be recycled, while cooler bags that are returned to us are sanitised so they can be reused again. Simply pass them to our delivery guys on your next scheduled delivery.
We aim for zero food wastage during production. This is why our juices are made to order, and are delivered fresh from our kitchen each day. We order fresh ingredients daily, specifically for the amount we need for the juice we send out that day. This way, we avoid food wasted from leftover ingredients.
At Antidote we want to help more people achieve a healthy lifestyle, which is why we’re looking for new ways to give back to our community. We believe in the power of building communities that build people up in turn. That’s why for every bag returned, we will be donating a dollar to a non-profit cause.
We’re looking to partner with an organization that is making a difference, check back here soon for our update!
So, why don’t we use glass bottles? Glass bottles have been shown to have a higher carbon footprint in terms of production and delivery. Plastic bottles need less energy to be produced as they have a lower melting point and are softer than glass. The same holds true for shipping and delivery, since glass is heavier than plastic and requires more energy.
On the other hand, Singapore does not have the right facilities for speed composting, so compostable plastic is likely to end up in landfills as well.
This is why we encourage all our customers to recycle our plastic bottles, so we can extend the life cycle of the plastic used to create it.
Plastic bottles made from PET or other plastic materials can be easily recycled into many different products, from tote bags to carpet fibres, or even into another bottle. The cost of transporting plastic bottles to recycling centres is low because they’re so lightweight.
We strive to be as eco-friendly as possible for a small business, and we’re always looking into how we can enhance and improve upon our sustainability practices. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any suggestions.
In Singapore, most of our waste goes to a landfill or incineration plant, which wastes resources and does nothing to protect our environment. In fact, our landfill in Pulau Semakau is expected to be completely full in 2035, an entire decade earlier than predicted.
In 2019, Singapore only recycled about 4% of more than 900,000 tonnes of plastic waste. Let’s do our part to avoid plastic waste ending up in landfills or the ocean. Many marine animals are severely injured or even die from being affected by plastic debris.
By recycling, we can:
We deposit our recyclables into the blue bins located near our premises, which you can do too! Glass, Metal, Paper and Plastic can all be deposited into the same blue bin. To prevent contaminating the rest of the recycling bin, it’s important that bottles be thoroughly cleaned before recycling.
Just follow this simple 4-step process that we use to recycle:
