I mostly use the Huel bars and have loved pretty much every version so far, especially the last 2 versions. However, I’m sure a lot of people are feeling more and more guilty/aware that the packaging is terrible.
They are terrible to open, incredibly wasteful and they just really need to change this.
The official story is:
"The wrappers are made of a composite of plastic outer layer to make them strong and waterproof, and an inner layer of foil to block light and stop the micronutrients degrading."
Ok, understood, now let’s talk about this in detail.
Does my huel wrapper need to be strong? Not really
Does it need to be waterproof? Of course not
Blocking light to stop the micronutrients from degrading: How much difference does this REALLY make? There is no other alternative that is recyclable that can do as good or almost as good of a job?
This HAS to change, you guys need to set a leading example here, change this!
