Seaweed and positive impact to climate change

One of the most important contributions seaweed makes to the environment is through a process called carbon sequestration.

Seaweed functions like other plant life in that it takes in carbon and releases oxygen, but does so on a much greater scale thanks to its high growth rates.

Kelp, for example, can grow by as much as 60cm in one day and soaks up as much as 600 million tonnes of carbon every year.1 Once carbon dioxide is locked within the seaweed, it can be harvested for use or stored underground where it cannot negatively impact the climate.2

In order for sustainable seaweed farming to continue, grow, and make an impact on the climate as a whole, the demand for seaweed by brands must be there. Ingredients like PureSea®Natural offer great advantages as a natural, vegan and organic certified source of iodine, allowing multiple approved Health Claims.

PureSea® uses wild-harvested organic Hebridean seaweed to create a plant-based natural ingredient for multiple uses in food supplements. It provides an easy way for brands to deliver on the extensive health benefits of seaweed, while also preparing for a move towards a more sustainable future. It is the time for food supplements brands to ride the seaweed wave and utilise marine plant life to improve their own sustainability levels.
