Environmental awareness

The Company strives for the prudent and economical use of natural resources.

We employ environmentally friendly technologies in our production and make an effort to reduce waste and decrease water and energy consumption so as to minimise the environmental burden. We respect the environment and, among others, our Company obtained the international ISO 14001 environmental management certificate.

The environmental policy adopted by the Company applies to all employees. It encompasses the basic principles of our environmental awareness. Through proactive internal and external communications, awareness raising and continuous training we improve environmental awareness among everyone taking part in the business process.

We take care of the environment

Skrbimo za okolje

One of Slovenia’s most distinguishing characteristics is its preserved nature and it is therefore our responsibility to protect it. We respect the natural values that intertwine in the Slovenian natural heritage – forests, rivers, lakes, streams, the seashore, waterfalls and underground caves.

In Slovenia, 449 kg of waste per capita is produced every year (source: Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment). Most of this waste is disposed of at landfills. By separating waste we process used material which becomes new raw material with a new life cycle. With little effort we can help reduce the use of natural resources and energy and preserve nature and the environment for future generations.

Because we only have one Earth

If everyone on the planet used as many raw materials as the Western population does, we would need another four Earths to survive. Since there is only one Earth, which makes it all the more valuable, Mlekarna Celeia actively contributes to its preservation.

Environmentally-friendly packaging

Caring for the environment means caring for the future. Mlekarna Celeia’s decision to use environmentally friendly packaging is underpinned by the knowledge that its actions can contribute considerably to environmental protection. The aim of redesigning the ZELENE DOLINE brand is to highlight our responsibility towards nature and everything that is natural, whereas all consumers of ZELENE DOLINE yogurts and drinks who separate waste show their responsible attitude to environmental protection.

What have WE done?

Our yogurts and drinks have eco-friendly packaging which, compared to conventional packaging, reduces the environmental burden for the following reasons:

  • the pots holding ZELENE DOLINE products weigh less than conventional pots and are made with up to 50% less plastic;
  • the less plastic that is used, the lower the environmental impact;
  • the cardboard label wrapping the pot and constituting 50% of the pot’s bearing capacity is made from about 90% recycled paper;
  • waste paper is less of an environmental burden than waste plastic; and
  • the cardboard wrapping is glued to the pot in just one place, thus facilitating the separation of different wastes.

And what can YOU do?

  • Separate the cardboard label and put it in with your paper waste which is more easily decomposed than other types of packaging.
  • Wash and flatten the pot and then put it in with your plastic waste.
  • Help protect nature by consistently and responsibly separating different types of waste.

Ecolabels

Many products in the market today have environmentally-friendly packaging. This is also the case with ZELENE DOLINE dairy products. The following ecolabels explain how to handle the packaging:

Skrb za okolje

This label warns that the packaging must be disposed of in a suitable place. If a waste packaging handling system has been established, then the most suitable place is a designated container or collection site.

Skrb za okolje

The triangle is an international symbol of recyclable products. As a rule, there is a number in the middle of the triangle and an acronym denoting the type of material.

Let us pool our knowledge and awareness about environmental protection!

Nature will be grateful!
