To learn more about Earth Hour and how businesses can get involved, check out our previous article here.
In collaboration with AEONA, our office will turn the lights off between 8:30 pm and 10:30pm on the 26th of March in support of Earth Hour and what it stands for. We don't believe the hour is enough so we would love to go above and beyond! Every employee will also be individually participating in Earth Hour in their own homes.
Finally, Vitable will be spreading the message of Earth Hour across our organic social channels in the lead up to the Earth Hour event to help promote the cause and encourage other businesses and individuals to participate as well.
At Vitable, our mission is to shake up the throwaway culture of everyday health and wellness products and help everyone feel better with sustainable health solutions.
Our daily vitamin packaging is made from sustainably sourced, plant-based cellulose produced from sustainably harvested Eucalyptus trees which are certified to be GMO-free. Our sachets break down naturally and return nutrients back into the soil under home-composting conditions without releasing toxins.
Most recently (March 2022), we have upgraded our sustainability experience with new innovative packaging! Vitable has replaced their monthly cardboard vitamin pack container with a solid, refillable dispenser to minimise unnecessary waste. Australia generated a whopping 75.8 million tonnes of waste in 2018-19 alone. Only 9.4% of plastic was successfully recycled, and 20.5 million tonnes of waste was sent directly to landfills.* All customers will receive a refillable dispenser with their first order and all following orders will come as refills packed in FSC-certified and recyclable cardboard materials.
Everything from our packaging to the shipping containers and packaging tape we use to deliver our products uses sustainable materials (all FSC approved), but the job isn't done, we will constantly look out for different ways to be even MORE sustainable.

We have a number of plans in the calendar at Vyro for this year’s Earth Hour.
We’re all going to be:
Our whole mission at Vyro is to reduce Australia’s carbon emissions caused by tailpipe emissions by increasing the adoption of zero-emission vehicles. We want to make the biggest positive impact that we can. Other than offsetting our business’ carbon footprint with trace, we also are planting an extra 10 trees for every car sold through the platform and actively ensure that everything we do is as carbon friendly as possibly.
As individuals, our team is going to ensure they’re doing as much as possible to reduce their carbon footprints. As a business, we’ll be adding all of our sustainable partners to our platform. So, our customers will be able to not only easily switch to a zero-emission vehicle, they’ll also be able to install a home charger, change over to a carbon-neutral energy provider, buy pay-as-you-drive insurance, and share their car with others. This will help more Australians make the switch from their fuel-powered car.
