WHY TERRACOTTA POTS?
Our commitment to health & sustainability
One of our hallmarks at the Kalypso Creamery are our multipurpose ceramic pots that we use to package all of our grass fed dairy products. For purity, beauty, sustainability, and health. Terracotta is unparalleled among the more commonly used packaging materials. And we are committed to keeping our “grass to clay.” ideal and here is why.
REPURPOSE, REUSE, RECYCLE
Making our future the result of our present
Why is terracotta packaging such a big deal? Because it means you are doing your part to sustain our planets health as well as your own! Our Kalypso pots are made completely from clay. An inert and natural material, sourced in the Pyrenees mountains. They are 100% recyclable –oven, dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe. Our production process requires less energy and uses fewer natural resources than any other packaging material. We encourage our customers to recycle their little pots when they have finished enjoying their favorite snack.
More importantly, we here at Kalypso are hoping to change our customers attitude toward plastic within one generation.
Plastic pollution is a global issue that impacts not only our oceans, but our health and well being. One Kalypso cup at a time we hope to end the culture of disposable plastic, and implement a closed loop reusable system for our ceramic jars. In doing so we hope to shape future demand for environmentally sensitive products and solutions.
THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF YOUR TERRACOTTA POTS
Terracotta is more than just a good choice for the earth’s well being; it is the ideal packaging for your health as well.
It is the most trusted material in Europe for a reason. Terracotta protects the purity of its contents. It is made from natural, non-toxic raw materials. Unlike plastic, our pots will never leach harmful chemicals into your food, no matter how many times it is used. Of particular concern is the compound BPA, found primarily in plastic yogurt packaging, which has been shown to disrupt hormones; recent studies have revealed that even BPA-free plastics can impact our bodies’ normal estrogenic activity along with a recently discovered association with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children. With our FDA approved terracotta pots, certified lead and cadmium free, there is no possibility for toxin contamination.
Since the beginning, ceramic packaging has been part of our vision for health and sustainability. We believe only the purity and beauty of ceramic packaging is worthy of such a high quality product. Second we believe in recycling. Our pots are oven, freezer, dishwasher and microwave safe and we encourage our consumers to reuse their containers.
Because we invest so much in producing high quality, nutritious grass fed products, it is important to us that our yogurt and milk do not lose any of their nutrients once packaged in their containers. Our ceramic pots ensure that all nutrients will never be compromised, nor will the taste of the product inside be affected. Which is not the case with other packaging materials. Clear containers in comparison allows the UV lights in retail settings to breakdown key vitamins and minerals, as well as radiating the live probiotics that are the main benefit of a real Greek yogurt, leaving a non nutritious product, that’s only visually appealing.
THE HIDDEN BENEFITS OF CLAY
Traditional packaging rooted in ancient Greece
Have you ever wondered how sitting by the ocean produces a sense of calm and peacefulness? There is a scientific explanation for this. Air is filled with either negative or positive charges called ions. Fresh air in places like the ocean contain an abundance of beneficial negative ions and contribute to a feeling of well being. These ions can enhance our immune defenses, reduce susceptibility to colds and the flu as well as provide relief from the every day stresses we place our body through. This is the very dynamic that makes clay such a powerful de-toxifier. As you can see a lot of thought has gone into our clay pots.
