Our Plastic free mission

Love for Mother Earth
Love for Mother Nature is firmly anchored in the heart of Lovechock. "Love for the planet" is one of the three pillars of Lovechock's corporate philosophy. The earth gives us our superfoods like cacao, matcha and mulberries. We want to leave the earth to future generations as healthy as possible by deciding what we use and how we make our products.

That's why in our role as pioneers - long before the European Union introduced a ban on free plastic bags to combat plastic waste - we set out to find a solution for an environmentally friendly packaging. The challenge was to find something that wasn’t aluminum or plastic, that was still good enough to pack food our beautiful chocolate.

Plastic Free Foil

Our chocolate bars are wrapped in foil that is 100% compostable made from a cellulose that can be composted at home. It’s made from wood pulp, that’s certified from sustainable forests (PEFC and FSC). This foil or cellulose looks like plastic but it’s plastic-free and can be disposed of in your green bin! We are proud to say that Lovechock has been plastic-free since 2011.

Here is the proof: the compost ability of our foil was tested by “cradle to cradle expert Jop Timmers., In a test, over a 90 day period, Jop buried foil from 16 bars of raw s in his own garden in Amsterdam together with a kiwi compostable-packaging foil from the Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn. The result? See for yourself.

Three months later, almost nothing remained of the Lovechock cellulose foil compared to the Kiwi-packaging from the supermarket.

Environmentally friendly Wrapper
The easily re-closeable PEFC carton wrapper is also environmentally friendly. It’s made from wood from sustainable forests, that also respect the socio-cultural values of the community.

Packaging redesign in the spirit of environmental protection

Living consciously for Lovechock means taking small steps toward improvement every day. In 2017 our newly designed packaging for the bars had a lower foot print. We also did that in 2018 with our tablets. The wrapper is now sourced from the Netherlands instead of the USA, is also unbleached and uses 20% less material. We love our new Look.

Even the small steps count

Living consciously is part of our everyday life. Whilst we still drive and fly, we try to consider the little things in our ever-day lives, from waste separation at the office to train trips through Europe. We’re by no means perfect, but we challenge ourselves every day to think differently.
