Let's Talk Sustainable Switches
Nearly 70% of consumers in the US and Canada think it's important that a brand is sustainable or eco-friendly. That said, there's a long way to go. The global economy has deep roots in unsustainable practices, and changing those practices is extremely difficult—especially for small businesses. We continuously (and gently) remind ourselves: "Not everything moves across the finish line at the same time." Every day we work on attainable and sustainable solutions for ourselves and our customers. Here's a few examples we have put into action:
1. Shampoo Bar
2. Refillable Program
The Refillable Program features a collection of products that are—you guessed it—refillable. Instead of re-shipping heavy glass products and contributing to the 48 billion tons of CO2 that are pumped into the atmosphere each year, we now offer items in bulk with 20% savings. This reduces your carbon footprint by weight and frequency. AKA, shipping won't be as heavy and you won't have to order as often. Savings and eco-friendly don't often go together, so we are pleased to offer this Program. Check it out here.
3. Outdoor Spray
Nature called, and she said she'd prefer we not bring toxic chemicals into her house. This natural Outdoor Spray repels bugs without DEET or alcohol. Now you can "leave it better than you found it," like Leave No Trace asks.
4. Skin Repair or Healing Honey Stick
5. Waterless Beauty
Our Face Collection has multiple eco-friendly bragging points, (clean ingredients, totally vegan, ethically-sourced ingredients), but we're going to focus on one: Waterless beauty. The beauty industry wastes an extraordinary amount of water because water adds volume and texture to their products. However, by adding water they also have to add preservatives (to prevent mold). Our Face Mask and Face Wash are both activated with just a few drops of H20, which means it weighs less and is preservative-free. With water scarcity on the rise, it's a great green switch to make.
