We are excited to unveil a project we have been working on for some time - Veo is now recyclable!
From the start, we have been focused on minimizing our environmental footprint, and even before this latest step we have reduced the mass of each strip to less than 2 grams. Our new move to full recyclability results from close collaboration with our raw materials supplier. We have put in place a program for true reuse of 100% of the materials you receive in your order, from packaging (paper-based and always recyclable) to, now, the strips themselves. Note that Veo is still made of the same super high-quality medical grade materials.
One of our key goals was to make it easy for our customers to recycle. With each U.S. order, we will include a return shipping envelope, postage prepaid, for you to send us your used strips - no need to remove the adhesive (in fact, they are easier to handle if you fold them in half so all the adhesive is stuck to itself). The returns (envelope and all!) will be added directly into the raw material used to manufacture durable industrial products. These products need the impact resistance that our flexible material imparts and use all that you send back. Our recycled strips directly replace (i.e., eliminate) new material that would otherwise be required.
