An Inside Look at Our Recyclable Packaging

It’s one thing to say we care about the environment, and it’s another to actually do the work.

We are constantly revisiting and reimagining our products and packaging in ways that are responsible to people and the planet.

Not only are our tubes and bottles completely recyclable, our outer cartons are also made from FSC-certified paper. Here’s what that means for our planet.

Our FSC Certified Outer Cartons

Our outer cartons are made from paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. This means that the trees harvested to create the paper meet the FSC’s stringent criteria:

  • Zero deforestation. Trees are harvested responsibly so there is no net loss of forest over time.
  • Fair wage and work environment. All workers are provided with proper training, adequate safety protocols, and fair wages.
  • Support the change from preservation to conservation. Plant and animal species are protected.
  • Community rights. Local communities living in and around forest areas are consulted, and their legal and cultural rights to land and forest resources are respected.

Our Bottles and Jars

We use glass wherever possible to maximize your ability to upcycle and minimize our use of plastics. When we do use plastic, we make sure we do it responsibly. Here are three ways we make sure our plastic use doesn’t negatively impact the planet:

We utilize post-consumer-recycled and reclaimed ocean plastics for our flexible plastic tubes, and ensure that our bottles are 100% recyclable. We also share recycling information on every product page to help ensure recycling success.

How to Recycle Properly in Three Easy Steps

Upcycling is the easiest and most planet-friendly way to re-use your empties. But when that’s not possible, you’ll need to recycle it. But while most people toss their plastics into the correct bin and assume they’ve done their duty, that’s unfortunately not the case.

The actual process of recycling is surprisingly complicated. All plastic trash gets sorted at recycling plants, but when it arrives dirty or contains multiple components, it often ends up in the landfill. Fortunately, you can help prevent your plastic packaging from becoming landfill waste by recycling it properly using these three rules of thumb:

  1. Rinse empty containers, making sure they’re free of residue.
  2. Remove and toss attached paper labels. We make sure ours come off easily with a little water and minimal tugging.
  3. Disassemble packaging components and sort properly. Each product page on our site has a detailed description of how to do this.
