Vitamin Angels

  NBI has partnered with Vitamin Angels, a nonprofit organization focused on delivering essential micronutrients to malnourished children and pregnant women.

With every purchase of an NBI product, NBI donates twenty-five cents to this important cause. While $0.25 may not seem a lot, it is enough to deliver vitamin A to one child for an entire year, increasing his or her chance of survival by 23%. And 95% of every donation goes directly to Vitamin Angels' global programs.

Vitamin Angels is dedicated to reducing child mortality worldwide by advancing availability, access and use of essential micronutrients, especially Vitamin A, to newborns, infants and children under five. In 2010, Vitamin Angels will connect over 20,000,000 children in 40 countries, including the US, with the vital nutrients they need as a foundation for good health.  To learn more about global malnutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, and Vitamin Angels' solution for change, visit

A simple, cost-effective vitamin A capsule each six months can prevent vitamin A deficiency blindness and reduce under-five child mortality by 23%. Vitamin Angels reduces child mortality and sickness among the most vulnerable populations, including the underserved or those who do not have easy access to facility-based health services. In 2009-2010, Vitamin Angels reached more than 29,000,000 children and 4,000,000 lactating women in thirty countries.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle


We believe that every company--no matter its size--can and should make a difference. That's why NBI recycles 100% of all recyclable materials and packages its products in recyclable containers. We encourage everyone to do their part. To date, we estimate that NBI has recycled more than two tons of materials, which are turned into other useful products and kept out of the landfill.
