At Earth Soap Co, we are committed to bring you skincare products that are sustainably made by people that care. For us, that means being an eco-conscious business every step of the way. This Earth Day, we wanted to share with you a few ways we strive to put people and the planet before profit.
Our ingredients may be the biggest piece. When we started making soap, it was important for us to use the best, healthiest ingredients possible. We still put this as our top priority. We are committed to using sustainably sourced and organic ingredients not only for us as consumers, but for the environment. We grow many herbs and botanicals ourselves and love to source from small farmers (local whenever possible). Responsible wildcrafting is another way we love to stay connected to the earth and bring you the freshest ingredients possible.
All of our soap labels are printed on recycled paper and are recyclable and compostable. Our glass and tin containers can be reused or recycled. We use shipping boxes made from 100% recycled, 95% post-consumer content, and 100% recyclable, biodegradable compostable filler. Any plant-based packaging peanuts are reused from incoming shipments.
Our goal for zero waste is to reduce consumption by only using what we need. Some of it is simple, such as don’t leave lights on and turn down the thermostat at night. We also put in great effort to recycle, compost or reuse what we can.
Part of our being a responsible company includes giving back. With every purchase, we donate 10% to local needs along with charities dedicated to protecting the earth, or empowering woman and children through education, protection, access to clean water and healthcare.Thank you for helping us to fund these nonprofit organizations. For the month of April, Earth Month, we are donating 10% to the Earth Day Network and Green Okanogan Recycling.
We are a micro-company, and we know we are a drop in the bucket, but we believe that even the smallest changes matter. Our commitment to environmental stewardship is not always easy, but we think it is so worth it; for us, for our children, for the planet.
So again, thank you for supporting us and for choosing products that are not only good for you, but good for Earth.
Happy Earth Day!
