ZERO WASTE PLEDGE
From upcycling soap scraps into the Confetti Bars for the St. Johns Food Share to recycling cling film through Ridwell, Soaps for Good works daily to reduce our waste and carbon footprint. Part of that includes packaging our curb recyclable products, home compostable, or reusable, such as the mason jars holding the Bale of Turtles.
100% certified compostable wrap (BPI Certification #10529304). Created by the bio-engineers, designers, and scientists at Great Wrap. Great Wrap uses starch from potato waste and breaks down in under 180 days adding organic material to your compost pile instead of microplastics in the landfill. We even put the box it comes in into the compost bin.
Don’t have a composting option? If Great Wrap ends up in a landfill, it will break down after 1-3 years.
Made by EcoEnclose for us using their Zero Waste stickers. The sticker liner is curbside recyclable and uses 100% post-consumer waste. So go ahead and toss your stickers in the recycle bin after you’ve removed them from the cling wrap.
If they are on a box, you don’t have to remove them before they go into the recycle bin.
EcoEnclose for the win again. Your soaps are tied with 100% Hemp grown in Hungary. Fully biodegradable and compostable. Or you can reuse it on something else.
Once again, we turn to EcoEnclose for our tissue paper. We use both printed and unprinted (with Algae ink). Made from 100% recycled paper and biodegradable, you can rest easy putting this in your recycle bin for curbside pick up.
We use recycled paper and soy ink on our tags and product labels. They are fully recyclable, so go ahead, kick ‘em to the curb.
We use made-in-the-USA Ball Mason jars, a staple of canning and food storage for over a century. While you can simply rinse and toss aside, they are fully reusable for storing small items, canning (of course), making candles, and so much more.
We use them for our small, single-use soap sets. Soap today, tomato sauce for the winter.
Did you know most shipping labels use an adhesive that isn’t recyclable? So if you just put the boxes in the recycle bin without removing the label, the box can’t be recycled. Bummer. So … thanks again, EcoEnclose, for these zero-waste labels.
SHIPPING BOXES AND ENVELOPES
We use recycled and recyclable shipping envelopes and boxes. Sometimes we can reuse a box that we’ve been sent! Feel confident knowing you can recycle, reuse, or store on a shelf in the basement where you stack the ‘just in case I need them’ boxes. We source from various sources where we get the best price without skimping on our core commitments.
