Health 2000's 'roll' in looking after the planet

At Health 2OOO, our ethos of ‘where caring comes naturally’ doesn’t stop at the health of you and your family. The health of our planet is rapidly changing, and we know we have a role to play in caring for the Earth too.

With 68 stores across the country, we’re lucky enough to support and guide many of you on your natural health journey. However, as you can imagine, having lots of stores means lots of packaging is required for products and transportation.

The next step on our sustainability journey

We’ve taken lots of steps to reduce our packaging and waste – including transitioning from plastic bags to compostable bags back in December 2018. With the government’s new ban of all single-use plastic bags in July, this gave us another nudge to look at our carbon footprint and explore what else we can do.

In addition to making a conscious effort to reduce our waste, we are now transforming our otherwise-wasted packaging into hi-tech, quality products that you can use at home.

Introducing our new foam rollers!

We’ve partnered with Obie to transform our old, leftover plastic bags (plus additional plastic packaging) into high-quality foam rollers that you can use at home, at the gym – wherever you like to stretch and massage your muscles.

Made for life, not for landfill

Currently, many EVA foam products (like typical foam rollers) are unrecyclable. And because they flatten so fast, many simply clog landfill or clutter our own cupboards. Our new rollers are made from our recycled plastic bags, plus, each roller is made from a single mould, reducing our carbon footprint.

But even if you’re not into saving the planet right now, the unique eco-technology that makes the rollers is in fact what allows them to hold its optimised density compression and round shape for life. We guarantee it.

The benefits of foam rolling…

…are endless! But here’s just a few:

  • Supports blood flow and circulation
  • Reduces tension in your muscles
  • Improves your posture
  • Supports your deep breathing capability
  • Helps in targeting knots
  • Supports mobility.

If you’re recovering from a sports injury, need to stretch tense or tight muscles, want to improve general mobility or are keen to play a ‘roll’ in looking after our planet, then a Health 2OOO foam roller is for you.
