According to Zero Waste Week, more than 120 billion units of packaging are produced globally every year by the cosmetics industry, bulked out by the use of complex lids, multi-layered boxes and cellophane, much of which is superfluous, non-recyclable and ends up in our landfills contributing to loss of 18 million acres of forest annually and At least 8 million tonnes of plastic enters the world’s oceans each year.
Where possible we use plastic-free materials that are 100% recyclable. Aside from our actual products, our postal boxes are made from recycled cardboard. As a millennial skincare brand we are driven in helping to tackle some of the world’s most complex sustainability challenges.
