The natural and organic industry has developed tremendously and managed to become one of the most reputable professional industries that exist in Australia. The increasing environmental awareness has led to manufacturing procedures that ensure a genuine finished product with regard to environmental sustainability.
All our products are made and implement standards and procedures that ensure a genuine finished product, all products are produced in ways that produce no toxic waste. We do not test our product on animals, we do not over package our products and our packaging is recyclable.
Packaging – Our Environmental Commitment-Packaging of our products is assessed for Recyclability and Biodegradability. We believe in supporting the environment with biodegradable natural ingredients and recyclable packaging. All Baji products are printed with a universal recycle symbol reminding us to recycle where possible.
Responsible disposal-Glass-Glass is recyclable and can be placed in most local recycle streams.
Cardboard and paper-All Baji boxes and paper products are recyclable.
Labels-Our labels are produced from a plastic material [PET] or paper pulp.
Inks/varnish-Our printing is done using waterless printing technology which is the most environmentally friendly printing process available. We consider the type of ink and varnish used on a box or label, and chooses the best option for the environment. The majority of our inks are bio-inks; manufactured from renewable vegetable oils, that are fully bio-degradable and all Baji inks and varnishes are recyclable.
Plastics-Baji uses plastic bottles and containers that have code 1(Polyethylene terephthalate) commonly known as PET or code 2 HDPE (High Density Polyethylene).
Plastic can ends up in land fill which takes years to degrade. It is therefore important to consider plastic types and their recyclability. Recycle codes are added to our packaging to aid sorting and collecting. This code distinguishes the types of polymer used e.g. polyethylene, poly propylene. When it comes to recycling your local council provide information for which types of plastics can be recycled in your area.
Please see recycle codes below for reference.
1.Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET, PETE). PET is clear, commonly used in soft drink bottles and many injection molded consumer product containers. Other applications include strapping and both food & non-food containers. Cleaned, recycled PET flakes and pellets are in great demand for spinning fiber for carpet yarns, producing fiberfill and geo-textiles.
2.High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE is used to make bottles for milk, juice, water 7 laundry products. Unpigmented products are translucent. HDPE is used for packaging many household & industrial products.
3.Vinyl (Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC). In addition to its stable physical properties, PVC has excellent chemical resistance, good weather ability, flow characteristics and stable electrical properties. Common use for water pipes.
4.Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). Flexibility and transparency; Making it popular for use in applications where heat sealing is necessary. LDPE is also used to manufacture some flexible lids & bottles and it is used in wire & cable applications
5.Polypropylene (PP). Used for hot-fill liquids.PP is found in flexible and rigid packaging to fibres and large moulded parts for automotive and consumer products.
6.Polystyrene (PS). Polystyrene is a versatile plastic that can be rigid or foamed. General purpose polystyrene is clear, hard and brittle. It has a relatively low melting point. Typical applications include protective packaging, containers, lids, cups, bottles and trays.
7. Use of this code indicates that the package in question is made with a resin other than the six listed above, or is made of more than one of the resins listed above, and used in a multi-layer combination. Three and five gallon reusable water bottles, some citrus juice and sauce bottle
Use of Eco-energy & Carbon offsets
Baji uses Eco-energy for our office and responsible printing and energy efficient printing processes.
We also Invest in CO2 Australia’s Carbon Sequestration Program where Trees are integrated onto property in conjunction with a farming systems approach can provide a range of significant positive environmental, financial, biodiversity and agronomic benefits. CO2 Australia partner with farmers to establish tree plantings that:
mitigate the risk of salinity and soil erosion, reduce water logging, enhance the microclimate by reducing wind speed and increasing soil moisture retention, provide shelter for grazing stock, improve soil structure and water quality, minimising runoff, support greater biodiversity, remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.
Baji Also contributes to carbon Neutral where donations help revegetate rural Australia. Contributions assist to plant mixed native and bio diverse species to satisfy regulatory requirements or to generate high quality carbon offsets, Increase biodiversity, absorb greenhouse gas, reduce soil erosion, combat salinity
All plantings are protected for 100 years
At Baji & Into Naturals Australia we’re constantly striving to improve our energy efficiencies and contributions to assist on how we can help better our environment and are open to suggestions.

Ingredient safe, Ingredient Smart…..
What we put in our products-Safe ingredients that is non-toxic, plant and mineral based ingredients, free radical, age fighting antioxidants, natural ingredients and certified organic with minimal processing, natural anti-inflammatory, super nutrients, Essential fatty acids, Essential oils, cold pressed and organic nut, seed and fruit oils naturally extracted has skin compatibility
What we do not put in our skin care–Petrochemical, Sodium laurel Sulphate, Genetically Modified ingredients, Parabens,Artificial colouring, Artificial fragrances.
