Balancing the proper packaging for our personal care products and their environmental impact requires a lot of research and thought. One function of packaging is to preserve the freshness of our products–in this case, product ingredients dictate our packaging choice. Another function is to protect our product in transit to our customers.
The environmental impact is always a priority. As we look at the ability to reduce, reuse and recycle, we also assess the carbon footprint of the packaging across the entire supply chain.
We Strive for Our Product Packaging to be as Plastic-Free as Possible. Over 95% of our packaging is recyclable or reusable. As our company grows, we will look to continue to cut the carbon footprint even less and be even more sustainable.
Drop Hair & Body is committed to eco-friendly green packaging. For us the packaging also embodies our products. We work hard to use sustainable packaging not because it is the fashionable thing to do, but because it is the right thing to do. As we grow, evolve, and learn we will continue to work even harder.
Sustainable packaging, also called Green Packaging, uses materials that will reduce the harmful impacts of packaging on the environment. So …
- we use minimal packaging
- we use materials that have little environmental impact
- we use materials that are sustainably sourced
- we use materials that can really be recycled
- Most of our boxes are from The United States Postal Service. The USPS has “Cradle to Cradle” certification at the Silver level from MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry) for human and environmental health. USPS packaging, as well as any other boxes that we use, meet Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification standards. Our boxes are now sealed with paper tape.
- Sometimes customers with large wholesale orders may receive materials such as plastic bubble wrap. Rest assured that we do NOT buy these materials. We are simply reusing the plastic packaging materials that we have received at our company and at our homes. It is our hope that these materials can be reused many times before ending up in our landfills.
