Join XYMOGEN in our quest to reduce plastics in the ocean
CleanSeas was launched in February 2017 and is a global initiative from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) with the goal of decreasing marine litter specifically. It encourages governments, corporations, and communities to limit the production and consumption of non-recoverable and single-use plastic, such as bottles, bags, and straws. Using #CleanSeas as its platform, this program allows citizens, companies, non-profits, and in fact whole countries to take the pledge to reduce their use of plastics, be engaged, and stay active in tackling this environmental problem.

2 Innovative ways Xymogen® is using less plastic:
The Medprax Program
These packs are convenient and customizable, and they are shipped in paper cartons. This program alone can reduce XYMOGEN’s plastic use by approximately 40% annually, depending on patient participation.
Swopping out Plastic for Paper based packaging
This conversion will mean using 98% less plastic packaging for these formulas. Once many of XYMOGEN’s powder formula packaging is converted, the company will be able to eliminate using approximately 375,000+ plastic bottles in its packaging.
