Our Eco Values
Every item found in our box has been researched to strict environmental standards so you can feel good about using them without wondering whether they are truly eco-friendly. The products in our boxes are:
Organic ingredients where possible and preferably ingredients that are certified USDA organic to ensure that the raw materials were grown and produced without the use of toxins or non-organic pesticides.
No toxic chemicals, parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances, synthetics, or other environmentally harmful ingredients.
The products do not contain any animal products.
If a product is Beegan it means that it can include bee products like honey and beeswax from ethical non-commercial beekeepers.
Low Waste Product Packaging
Packaging is as sustainable as possible, (glass, steel, aluminum, and biodegradable sugarcane with little plastic). You won't find HDPE pouches, plastic squeeze tubes, or plastic that is not easily recyclable at most facilities. We avoid plastic packaging as much as possible unless the brand is using post-consumer material or contains plastic that is hard to replace.
Consider End of Life
The end of life of every product is a very important part of the sourcing and we work to source from brands that are upcycling materials and creating closed loop systems. Many products or packaging is compostable, reusable, recyclable or biodegradable.
Any paper products included will be made from post-consumer paper or FSC-certified forests. No paper products from virgin forests will be included.
Items sourced with ingredients or materials from outside North America will be one of the following: registered as certified Fair Trade; have direct, transparent trade partnerships with artisans; or partner with a manufacturer that has fair labor and fair wages certificates (depending on the country).
During the sourcing we look for eco certifications including, but not limited to, the Rainforest Alliance, USDA Organic, EWG, 1% for the Planet, Orangutan Alliance, Safer Choice, Fair Trade, FSC, Vegan, Cruelty-free, Leaping Bunny, GOTS, Green Seal, Green America, or B Corp.
