Earth Conscious has always been a plastic free brand and our Sustainable Natural Deodorant products are natural and organic. That’s 100% natural. We do not use synthetic fragrances. When we say the product is a 100% natural deodorant, it really is. The natural organic ingredients are kind to your skin and the environment so it’s a total win win all round.
In terms of our product packaging, our Natural Deodorant comes to you in a sleek recyclable tin, a recyclable biodegradable or compostable cardboard tube or an essentially naked Bar which like to call the Bare Bar. If posted directly from us it will arrive in a Jiffy Green bag - so that’s no plastic bubble wrap sneakily hidden inside the walls of those postal envelopes.
It is important to us to stick to our plastic free commitment and my goodness that has proved challenging at times.
We considered glass as a potential product packaging but of course there are obvious smashing issues and given our Natural Deodorant makes for a fabulous travel deodorant, we decided glass was not suitable.
Plastic applicators would be an easy option but we pledged from the go get not to go down that route. We have considered recycled plastic that could even be refillable but ultimately that still ends up as part of the micro-plastic pollution problem. Its great to avoid single-use plastic or minimise it's use but we prefer to keep it simple and remain at totally plastic-free natural deodorant.
Aside of the plastic-free side of things, we also ensure that Earth Conscious products are long lasting meaning that customers save money by making the switch and therefore need less. Over consumption an excessive waste is a big consideration for our brand. We only make products with purpose.
We do the best we can with the choices available to us. We choose Fairtrade Coconut Oil and carry the Certified Fairtrade Logo on many of our products. This helps support the farmers in the supply chain.
We are against Animal Testing and are endorsed Cruelty Free as part of the Leaping Bunny Programme. Our products are approved Vegan Friendly by the Vegetarian Society.
Lastly, but most proudly we are long time supporters of the Marine Conservation Society, a charity who protects our seas, shores and wildlife. We give 10p from every single product sold. We are all in it together.
