Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Refill Bag

Optimum Nutrition is offering something new, different, and seemingly exclusive — from what we can see — through its online store at The sports nutrition company is known worldwide for its legendary protein powder, Gold Standard 100% Whey, available in all sorts of flavors and sizes, and it can be found in almost every country supplements are. The addition to the brand’s website is a spin-off of Gold Standard 100% Whey for those interested in being more environmentally friendly.

Now available for purchase from its direct-to-consumer online store is Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard 100% Whey Recyclable Refill Bag. The idea behind the product is that you will have already purchased a 2lb or even a 5lb tub of the iconic protein powder from a retailer or online store, and then you purchase this to fill it back up. As per the name, the Recyclable Refill Bag does not come in a traditional plastic tub but a recyclable bag that uses 85% less plastic than a 2lb tub of Gold Standard 100% Whey.

Through, the Gold Standard 100% Whey Recyclable Refill Bag costs you the same as a 2lb tub of the product at $44.99, and you get exactly the same amount of protein powder in just two of its roughly 20 different flavors in Double Rich Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream. Basically, you don’t pay any more or less than you normally would for the supplement, but you’re helping clean up the world, and there is no scoop, so if you grab the Recyclable Refill Bag, hold on to the one in your original tub.
