Zero Waste Initiatives

Did you know that only 9% of all plastic is recycled? The rest is sitting in a landfill, or worse, in the ocean. Microplastics are now found in 93% of bottled water, which means tiny particles of plastic are inside our bodies. This is a serious problem!

We are passionate supporters of the "zero waste" movement and constantly strive to reduce our carbon footprint and landfill contributions.

Currently, we throw away less than 10 lbs of trash a month.

Our product packaging + shipping materials are 100% plastic-free - we only use glass, cardboard, metal or compostable cellophane made from wood pulp.

We request that all of our vendors ship our supply orders in plastic-free packaging, though we do inevitably end up with some bubble wrap or air pockets from time to time. In the case that we receive plastic packaging, we reuse (only for wholesale orders) or recycle those materials.
