The Real thing shop

 The Real Thing takes Social Responsibility seriously. We regularly receive feedback from our valued customers regarding our product offering and its impact on the environment. Consequently we have re-evaluated the use of secondary packaging for the Complementary Medicine range. Secondary packaging in this range is being phased out for all products except that packed into the 75 ml glass bottles and our Mega Omega Fish Oil Range (Natural and Lemon). Current batches are being packed into glass amber bottles only. For your convenience, we have added a recycling logo to remind and encourage recycling. We have also provided a link to The Glass Recycling Company.  Visit their website to find a glass bank closest to you. Alternatively, many retailers have recycling facilities, so make recycling part of your shopping journey! Let us all do our part to recycle, repurpose or reuse to save our planet.

Sustainability and Social Responsibility



The UKAMA FOUNDATION cares for 500 children on Ukama's Breakfast Program. These centres include RC Gen ECD, RC Gen Soup Kitchen, Abantu Youth Organisation NPC, Come One Come All ECD, In His Footsteps ECD, Little Catterpillars ECD, Grace Educare, Priority Primary School and ECD and Visionary Can Ladies ECD. Towards the end of 2022, many feeding programmes were still recovering. COVID lockdowns had a tangible impact on young children and adults in some of the most vulnerable communities. The Real Thing donated 612 litres of Fish Oil for distribution to these centres at the end of last year. Another small way The Real Thing helps those who need it most!
