SUSTAINABILITY

A focus on sustainability

We build our products from nature, and we’re committed to doing so in a sustainable way.

Using plant-based ingredients, instead of ones derived from petrochemicals (or animal products), is a good start. Manufacturing in the US ensures a lower shipping footprint than products made overseas. We also package most of our products in carbon neutral sugarcane tubes or glass and all our packaging material is recyclable.

We’re always looking for ways to lower our environmental footprint.

Sustainable sugarcane packaging

We are excited to be transitioning many of our products to tubes made from sugar cane, a 100% renewable resource!

The sugar cane plant is fermented, distilled, and turned into plastic with the same properties as polyethylene, which is usually derived from petroleum. While one pound of this fossil fuel plastic releases 2.5 kilograms of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the sugar cane plant absorbs carbon dioxide from the air as it grows equal to the amount released during production, making it carbon neutral.

The tubes are also 100% recyclable.

We donate a tree for every product you buy

Every product plants a tree

We’ve partnered with Trees for the Future so every purchase helps create a greener planet. Planting trees offsets some of the carbon created during manufacturing and shipping. It also improves the lives of members of farming communities by providing an income and training in sustainable land use.

Please recycle

All of our packaging is recyclable. The boxes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. They and the paper cards can be recycled with other paper products.

The sugarcane tubes can be recycled with general plastic. Please snip the end of the tube and rinse the inside before recycling. Please also rinse the glass and plastic bottles before recycling as they will go to landfill if they still have product in them.
