Sustainable for people and planet
We believe that the health of our society is connected to the health of our planet. We take responsibility for our environment choosing the best possible solutions based on data, not trends.
Based on data, not trends (LCA analysis*)
Based on a life cycle assessment (LCA)
Thanks to LCA analysis we have data on where our emissions come from. We know what materials to use, we have data on how much lower impact we can make thanks to the use of bigger packaging, etc.
In collaboration with the University of Chemistry and Technology
We have analyzed packaging materials, transport boxes, package size, package fill, type of transportation, tape, and even environmental impact of the label.
We measure 28 environmental markers
We've decided not to do only popular marketing sustainable things but really lower our environmental impact. Not only lower CO2 emissions but we measure 28 environmental markers.
“Plastic seems to be the most suitable packaging material in this case. However, the strongest area where Trime can minimize the impact on the environment is the frequency of shipping and the possibility of ordering packages with as many batches as possible).”

We use packaging material that makes sense. Based on data!
Plastics are 49% more environmentally friendly. We measure impact from materials sourcing to toxicity of the environment.
- Although plastic does not have a very good reputation, we use it for most products. Why?
- The average package size of our products is 49% more environmentally friendly and leaves a much smaller environmental footprint than than if we used glass.
- We measured environmental impact from raw materials to the toxicity of the environment
- When do we use glass? Whenever the quality of the product requires it.
- In case of another material would affect the stability or other properties of the product, we choose pharmaceutical glass, however, is less environmentally friendly
- Sometimes it's worth to give priority to the quality and stability of ingredients
The difference for environment is the same as 6 hours and 10 minutes of lighting.
What can you do to lower your footprint?
We have done our part, your part is also important. We will show how small things can help.
Please recycle me!
If we consider our carbon footprint (no raw material and energy), 23 - 48% depends on if you recycle the bottle or not. We've done our best for environmental sustainability. Will you do the same? Please do it. It's easy and very important.
It's not so exciting, but really effective. We don't produce small packaging for 30 days, and we know why. It's easy to sell cheaper products but worse for the environment. For example, 30 and 90 capsules make a difference of 33% for the environment. It can be compared to 3 hours and 15 minutes of shining a light!
Buy more at once
You can also do a lot. If you are planning to order some product, buying bulk is a great way you can be more environmentally friendly. Amount of packaging material will be reduced and transport will be more effective as well. For example, comparing 3 products in one order, and 1 product in three orders make a difference of 5 hours and 59 minutes of shining a light.
Sustainability is not just packaging.
We choose suppliers who grow organically, avoid pesticides and other chemicals. We believe that the health of soil is crucial in the long-term perspective.
We aim to lower our emissions in every step of the manufacturing process. We choose suppliers who use renewable energy always, when it is possible.
We have a clear commitment. We do not test our products on animals. We are choosing raw materials from suppliers who can guarantee on 100% non-animal testing.
Our startup mindset is to look for innovation and improvements continuously. We design supplements at the level of original foods, corresponding to the living needs of the current generation, without impacting the needs and environment of future generations. We take action, not just nice words.
Our goal is to offer the highest quality food supplements, as close as possible to natural foods. All with the aim of keeping the smallest possible environmental footprint behind us and our suppliers. And that is why we decided in 2022 to replace the packaging of our supplements with recycled PET bottles.
Constant looking for inovation
A sustainable future as a commitment to the planet. We do not create health-promoting products that are Harmful to our planet. That wouldn't make sense. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce the impact on the environment. We still have a long way to go and we want you to accompany us at every stage of this process.
The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
method is designed to evaluate the environmental impact of products. It is a tool based on measuring technological, operational and environmental parameters of individual operations involved in the production, transport, raw material extraction, equipment, or fuel or energy entering any stage of the life cycle of the product under assessment.
