the individually wrapped tablets seem wasteful, why do you package them this way?
For best performance, Bottle Bright tablets need to be kept dry. The tablet efficacy is downgraded if the tablet is exposed to moisture and the effervescence is diminished. We feel that the foil wrappers are mindful packaging because 1) film uses the smallest amount of material (by weight) to package the tablets, and 2) by using foil we eliminate the need to add a separate desiccant pouch or pellet. The majority of packaging (again by weight) for Bottle Bright is the recyclable cardboard carton. We try to be aware of the full life cycle of all of our products, and to minimize packaging and impact whenever possible. We are constantly looking for any packaging improvements that allow for both product efficacy and minimized impact.
