FOR THE PLANET
We’re committed to respecting your skin & the environment. In addition to being carbon neutral, we’re constantly working to reduce our environmental footprint & challenge ourselves to become more eco-conscious in our ingredient sourcing, packaging, shipping, and everything else along the way.
Sustainability is a journey and we promise to be transparent with you every step of the way.
HERE ARE THE WAYS WE ARE WORKING TO DO OUR PART:
WE'RE OFFICIALLY CARBON NEUTRAL
We are officially Carbon Neutral as of April 2022. This means we have achieved a balance between carbons emitted and carbons absorbed from the atmosphere, a key milestone in our sustainability journey.Learn More
HOW DID WE GET HERE & WHAT'S NEXT?
We partnered with non-profit organization, Climate Neutral. Through their certification program, we measured our 2021 carbon footprint & put together a plan to offset and reduce our emissions now & in the future.
We offset our emissions by purchasing carbon credits & created a reduction action plan to reduce our emissions this year & every year after.
We're reducing our future emissions by optimizing our packaging to use less paper, moving the majority of our finished good production to occur domestically, working with our manufacturers & suppliers to improve efficiencies & optimizing demand planning to consolidate shipments.
We are constantly looking for ways to cut down on packaging and use more sustainable materials.Learn More
In an effort to actively reduce waste all of our products are 100% recyclable curbside or through our partnership with Terracycle. We’ve removed plastic spatulas & one time use elements like wafer seals from our products to reduce waste. (Although you can still opt for our more sustainable zinc alloy version.
BETTER (AND LESS) PAPER
We only use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)-certified paper, which means that paper is made of responsibly sourced wood fiber that helps protect forests, and print with soy & vegetable ink. We have also optimized the size of our carton packaging and are actively reducing the amount of paper used for every product’s box by 20-30%.
We launched our first refillable product in 2021, the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream. The refill pod helps reduce waste and is also made of 50% post-consumer recycled plastic, which is 100% recyclable.
We partner with TerraCycle to create a no waste recycling program.
INTENTIONAL INGREDIENTS & RESPONSIBLE SOURCING
Ingredients are important, which is why we approach formulation by creating products that are good for your skin and the planet.Learn More
Our formulations are created with intentional ingredients and feature sustainable methods of production. Whether that be implemented processes that conserve resources like cold-pressing, synthesizing ingredients using biotechnology in order to protect biodiversity, limiting food waste by using all parts of our fruits, or avoiding ingredients that are environmental hazards.
We’re constantly working with suppliers to source ingredients with a lower environmental impact when possible, like upcycled sugarcane, eco-certified plums, & more.
Our products are all 100% vegan and cruelty-free in addition to being Leaping Bunny Certified.
