The Carlson Plastic Neutral Journey Begins

Carlson joins a growing movement of brands committed to making an immediate and positive environmental impact.

Carlson, a global nutritional supplement company, announced that it will be expanding its sustainability efforts and starting on its journey toward becoming plastic-neutral by joining IMPACT COLLECTIVE, a group of forward-thinking brands committed to making an immediate and positive environmental impact through the reduction of their carbon, plastic, water, and energy footprints. This initiative is managed and administered by GreenPrint, a global environmental technology company.

“At Carlson, we’re as committed to the environment as we are to the high quality of our products,” said President Carilyn Anderson. “Since we imported our first omega-3 fish oils from Norway in the early 1980s, we have been dedicated to working with low-impact fisheries using traditional, sustainable methods – and now we’re taking steps toward going plastic neutral by removing proportionate amounts of plastic from our waterways.”

IMPACT COLLECTIVE offers members sustainability solutions to improve the environmental impact of their products. With their patented technology, they calculate members’ carbon, plastic, energy, and / or water consumption and offset it through investments in certified projects. IMPACT COLLECTIVE members can be recognized through IMPACT seals that appear on product packaging.

“As we continue to partner with companies within the CPG space, we are proud to include Carlson as an IMPACT COLLECTIVE member,” said Pete Davis, founder and CEO of GreenPrint. “Together, we are empowered to be responsible stewards of our planet and are working to drive the industry to become more sustainable, one step at a time.”

About Carlson

Carlson began in Chicago in 1965 as one woman’s mission to improve the health of her family by creating nutritional supplements with high-quality ingredients. Susan Carlson’s father suffered from heart issues but found relief after taking vitamin E. Inspired by this discovery and her background as a pharmacist, Susan created one of the first full lines of vitamin E worldwide, and the product line continued growing to meet the health needs of local families. Carlson began popping up on store shelves around Chicago, and the wave continued across the nation. 

In the early 1980s, Carlson helped launch the omega-3 market in North America, importing our first wild caught, sustainably sourced fish oils from Norway. Today, the commitment to helping families live a healthier lifestyle continues, as the next generation of the Carlson family leads the company. Carlson now offers more than 200 vitamins, minerals, omega-3s, kids' products, and other high-quality nutritional supplements. At Carlson, our family cares about the health of your family.
