Case study: Perfect Potion, Banyo
Perfect Potion is a manufacturer and retailer of skincare and aromatherapy products. As participants in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland ecoBiz program, the business’s manufacturing and distribution centre in Banyo has reduced its energy consumption by 54% and waste by 64%. To reduce the site’s electricity use, they have installed a 99kW solar system.
The business has also acquired a cardboard crimper so that incoming cardboard can be repurposed as a bubble wrap substitute for outgoing shipments. All finished goods are now packed in recyclable packaging (glass or aluminium).
In addition, the business has increased sustainability by participating in recycling soft plastics, batteries and print cartridges through established schemes and composting kitchen waste on site.
