Why We Don't Use Plastic
The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorants come in sleek yet functional tins. We have been asked why we use aluminium tins and not plastic or glass. Well the answer is this.
Our tins are lightweight and easy to package meaning the resources we need to use to get them to you in one safe piece are less. This is a bonus when green credentials are high on our list of priorities. They take up less space in a postal sack at the post office and thus in the transportation of them too - again less resources is a win.
They are also reusable and recyclable.
Aluminium is both abundant and sustainable.

Plastic for us is not an option at present. We keep an open mind and would be happy to research the use of recycled plastics perhaps in the future. Glass also a possibility but extra packaging costs both to the environment and to finances of which would inevitably mean a higher costing product for our customers isn’t something we are keen on.
Part of the Earth Conscious concept and ethic is that natural and organic products should not be unaffordable. Natural products should be affordable and accessible to all if we are to make a bigger impact on the world.
