K.Perry- Nature's One®
Breastfeed when possible, eat organic when affordable, use powdered products when available! Baby’s Only Organic® formulas and PediaSmart® organic nutrition beverages come at a low cost to you and the environment.
Organic at a Competitive Price: Ounce per ounce, Nature’s One® organic products are competitively priced when compared to other organic and conventional brands. Competitors often use lower quality ingredients (i.e., palm olein, corn syrup, sucrose), but still charge more for their product. We manufacture products made from high quality organic ingredients for a low cost per ounce by using green business practices.
Our powdered products allow us to pass transportation and packaging savings on to you while reducing fuel consumption and landfill waste. We keep marketing costs down by relying heavily on word of mouth referrals from happy parents and communicating through the internet.
An occasional magazine ad may show up in your doctor’s waiting room, but we don’t staff a team of sales representatives who visit doctors and hospitals to supply free samples to new mothers. Our business practices save you money.
Lower Transportation Costs: Liquid products such as PediaSure® and Boost Kid Essentials® contain a great deal of water putting them at an environmental disadvantage to powdered products. For example, a 12.7 ounce canister of PediaSmart® is nutritionally equivalent (when mixed with water) to 56 fl oz of the leading nutritional supplements.Our small 12.7 ounce can of Baby’s Only Organic® powdered formula reconstitutes to 80 fl oz. Imagine the increase in cost to ship these types of products from factory to distribution outlets to stores, on an ounce per ounce basis. It obviously costs much more to ship a liquid product because more trucks are needed and more gasoline is used, which also increases gas emissions.
Less Packaging Costs: Liquid products clearly use more packaging material compared to powdered products. Consumers pay a significant amount of money on packaging; this adds to transportation costs and ultimately results in increased waste trucked to landfills. A single Nature’s One® powdered canister is equivalent to 7 PediaSure® bottles or 2 ½ large jugs of Similac® ready-to-feed. We use composite canisters, which is good for the environment. They are recyclable and on average contain 50% recycled content, 35% of which is post-consumer recycled materials. Composite cans are light weight because they are made of paperboard instead of tin. This reduces environmental waste and energy used in manufacturing and transportation.
