We are working hard to reduce our own waste and advocate for waste reduction in our communities.
AS a Company, we take our impact very seriously. From manufacturing, to packaging, to distribution we always keep a close eye on our carbon footprint.
1. Our manufacturing process produces minimal to zero waste. We infuse the oils we use in our products with organic medicinal herbs. After the infusion process we compost the left over organic materials or donate them for soap making.
2. Our salves are packaged in glass and paper packaging. Glass is a material that can be recycled forever, and paper is biodegradable. We are working with a manufacturer who uses biodegradable coating. Packaging alone produces millions of tons of waste every year. We are at the forefront of this battle to reduce unnecessary waste production with our packaging.
3. We advocate in our community for zero waste packaging. We are working with schools to introduce more sustainable practices in their cafeteria, by recycling materials and composting food left overs.
4. We are also advocating at the local government level for environmental policy to introduce town wide curbside composting. According to Drawdown Project tackling food waste is in the top three solutions to reverse climate change.
