OLEHENRIKSEN alter-eco challenge


Earth Day is just a few short days away! Here at OLEHENRIKSEN, we believe in being celebratory of life and maintaining a continued commitment to health and wellness – and that includes the health and wellness of our planet!

One of the ways we do this is with our product boxes—they’re 100% recyclable and manufactured locally. We also recently began using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified paper board for all of our product boxes. This certification system provides an internationally recognized standard for responsible production and consumption of forest products.

As far as the day-to-day, we make sure to do our part at the corporate office and distribution center by doing things like turning off lights in rooms that aren’t being used and using real dishes when we eat food or go to get water out of the water cooler.

As a way to celebrate Earth Month and continue our commitment to a healthy planet, we wanted to kick recycling up a notch. So, we came up with the OLEHENRIKSEN Alter-Eco Online Challenge. We’re challenging you to come up with the most creative way to repurpose your OLEHENRIKSEN product containers. Get as imaginative and inventive as you can – whether it’s finding a new use for your jars and bottles or turning them into a sculpture, all ideas are welcome! There is no limit to the number of containers you can use to build your creation. To view the official contest description and to participate, click here. We of course, encourage you to recycle all of your OLEHENRIKSEN packaging, but isn’t it fun to get creative and figure out a new, useful way to repurpose it?!

As Ole says, “Let your inner voice govern your creativity!” We’re very excited to see what everyone comes up with!

    As a stay-at-home mom to a four-year-old, a three-year-old, and a two-year-old, I am constantly on the lookout for anything that might amuse or distract them for even five minutes! So I decided to put them to "work". I gave them all my old containers that I had been saving (for just such a purpose), and told them to organize all their tiny toys. So now there Barbie shoes in one container, blue Legos in another, crafting beads in another, etc.. Not only are the jars and bottles repurposed, but I am saving the landfill from hundreds of vacuums that would be ruined from sucking up all those tiny, crunchy parts. Not to mention the pain of stepping on a Lego in the middle of the night!
