Join us on our sustainability journey 🌎
People and our planet have always been at the forefront of our core values. We pride ourselves on pioneering natural skincare products and making sustainable choices where available.
A key part of our sustainability journey is documenting our achievements and progress, which helps us understand which areas we can improve on.
We invite you to have a read of our inaugural sustainability report here.
Our product promise 💚
Our packaging commitment ♻️
As part of our commitment to reducing our plastic footprint, we signed the New Zealand Plastic Packaging Declaration.
This means we will make the switch to 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging across our global operations by 2025 or earlier.
We were the industry leaders when we first moved to using 100% recycled plastic bottles for our shampoos, conditioners, body washes, body lotions and natural deodorants.
Always 100% cruelty-free 🐰
We have always been 100% cruelty-free – no exceptions.
This includes the suppliers we source our ingredients from as well as all authorised stockists of our products.
Our community 🤗
We do our best to offset any impact that our operations may have on the environment. We like to roll up our sleeves and head out into our local parks and beaches to keep our country clean.
Next steps for us 🌿
We’ve got big plans for our sustainability journey, please see some of our objectives below:
- Transition up to 80% of our PET to rPET by 2023
- Transition suppliers so that 90% of cardboard is sourced from New Zealand
- Utilise rainfall collection to reduce water consumption
- Partner with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise to measure our carbon footprint
