Support Our Future World

When considering the future, the products we choose have power. Going plastic-free, sustainably-sourced, and clean can have a big impact on the health of our planet. Here’s how:

Plastic-Free
Contrary to what we’ve been told, plastic cannot be recycled; it can only be upcycled, and only a small percentage of plastic gets upcycled. Discarded, single-use plastics have led to over-burdened, toxic landfills that poison surrounding groundwater and are cruel to marine life. For example: floating plastic ends up in the bellies of whales and other filter feeders; because plastic bags and plastic particles resemble jellyfish and algae, they are frequently consumed by sea turtles; ingested plastic disrupts the endocrine systems of dolphins, birds, and all other coastal and marine life, creating reproductive issues and diminishing populations.  By choosing plastic-free products, you are helping keep single-use plastics out of our landfills, rivers, oceans and out of the bellies of all the beings who live in our waters.  

Fair Trade
Fair Trade changes the way trade works through better prices, decent working conditions, and a fairer deal for farmers and workers. It means that environmental protection, sustainable livelihoods, and community development funds are assured. The fair-trade approach gives farmers and workers more control over their lives and the ability to decide how to invest in their futures. An easy way to affect real change through every day choices is to select products made with ingredients sourced through Fair Trade practices! By doing this, you’re giving farmers and workers a strong voice on crucial topics, such as how they invest in and run their local communities to regional environmental practices. Dedication to 5-star care for the humans and environments creating our pure, plant-based, ingredients is an integral part of our ethos.

Clean Beauty
By choosing cruelty-free, vegan, and natural (non-toxic) products, you are choosing to say no to potentially harmful ingredients that can include known carcinogens, irritants, and endocrine disruptors. As well, you are choosing to say no to the practice of animal testing, a common practice for conventional brands that causes great suffering.

The Future is a Holistic Consideration
As individuals, we are connected to everything and everyone on earth. The choices we make affect more than our own bodies. Whether you’re using one of our sustainably-sourced, essential oil-infused Castile Body Washes, our aluminum-free Deodorants, or our sustainable Oral Care, you can rest easy in the knowledge that by doing what’s best for yourself, you're also making a good choice for the future of our planet!
