Doctor Seaweed’s now in new plastic free pouches

Organic seaweed supplement brand Doctor Seaweed has announced the launch of a new plastic free and sustainable look for its packaging. The switch to plastic free comes as a new development for the brand which is committed to making sustainable and ethical products that positively impact both its customers and the planet, in a natural way. The introduction of plastic free pouches will start where Doctor Seaweed began, with the original Pure Seaweed Capsules, before being rolled out across the full range. 


Doctor Seaweed aka marine biologist Craig Rose commented, ‘After six years of phenomenal growth at Doctor Seaweed, we are thrilled to announce a significant eco friendly initiative for our supplements which will now be packaged in compostable, certified plastic free pouches. The move away from our plastic blisters is testament to our commitment to sustainability and our passion for marine conservation. It is so important to us that we achieve a plastic free future wherever possible, and so we are extremely proud to take this step in contributing positively to a healthier and cleaner planet. We endeavour to work towards changes that positively impact our customer and the planet, in a natural and sustainable way.’


Pure Seaweed capsules are a natural and plant based source of iodine making it easy to keep the thyroid healthy and keep  energy levels up


With a global population increasing and climate change threatening food security, seaweed is now entering the stage as the latest sustainable superfood. Most of us are familiar with seaweed in sushi, but seaweed has long been part of the daily diet in China and Japan. In fact, one-fifth of the meals consumed in Japan (which has the second highest life expectancy in the world) contain a form of edible seaweed. Despite being recommended by health and dietetic experts worldwide as one of the most nutritious foods to include in our diets, especially for women needing to increase their iodine intake, seaweed has often been overlooked in the Western Hemisphere.
