Plastic-Free July: Embrace Sustainability With H&Z!

Plastic-Free July: Embrace Sustainability With H&Z!

Welcome to Plastic-Free July!  This month, we celebrate our commitment to reducing plastic waste and embracing more sustainable living. At Hark & Zander, we believe that skincare should not only nourish your skin but also be kind to our planet. Join us in this movement as we share tips on how to go plastic-free and explore how Hark & Zander's sustainable skincare solutions can help you on this journey.

Why Plastic-Free Matters

Plastic pollution is a global crisis affecting our oceans, wildlife, and ecosystems. Every year, millions of tons of plastic waste end up in landfills and waterways, taking centuries to decompose. By reducing our plastic consumption, we can help mitigate environmental damage and protect our planet for future generations.

Hark & Zander's Commitment to Sustainability

At Hark & Zander, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. We are dedicated to minimising our environmental footprint by incorporating eco-friendly practices and materials in our products. Here’s how we contribute to a plastic-free future:

 1. Eco-Conscious Packaging: Our products are packaged in recyclable glass bottles and jars, reducing the reliance on single-use plastics. We use biodegradable labels and avoid plastic wherever possible, to decrease waste without compromising on aesthetics.

2. Natural Ingredients: Our formulations use sustainably sourced, natural ingredients that are gentle on your skin and the planet. We prioritise ethical, local sourcing and don’t use harmful chemicals, ensuring that our products are as eco-friendly as they are effective. We proudly use upcycled ingredients like Grapeseed Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Grapefruit Peel Oil. These repurposed ingredients reduce waste and provide your skin with rich nutrients and antioxidants.

3. Plastic-Free Shipping: We pack and ship our products using plastic-free materials such as recyclable brown cardboard boxes, tissue and 100% recyclable or home compostable courier bags.  This way, your order arrives in a sustainable package from our door to yours.

How You Can Go Plastic-Free This July

Ready to join us in going plastic-free? Here are some tips to help you make more sustainable choices in your daily routine:

1. Support Plastic-Free Brands: Support brands that prioritise sustainability and offer plastic-free or minimal packaging. By voting with your wallet, you encourage more companies to adopt eco-friendly practices.

2. Use Reusable Tools: Swap disposable cotton pads for reusable alternatives, like washable makeup remover pads or cloths. They are gentle on your skin and can be used repeatedly, reducing waste.

3. Recycle Responsibly: Ensure that any plastic you do use is recycled properly. Rinse containers before recycling, and check local guidelines to see what can and cannot be recycled in your area.

4. Choose Glass Over Plastic: Opt for glass containers for your skincare and beauty products. Glass is fully recyclable and can be repurposed in numerous ways, making it a more sustainable choice.

5. Avoid Microbeads: Microbeads in exfoliating products are a significant source of plastic pollution. Choose natural exfoliants like sugar, salt, or coffee grounds, which are effective and eco-friendly.

6. Educate and Advocate: Spread awareness about the importance of reducing plastic waste. Share your journey on social media, participate in community clean-ups, and advocate for policies that promote sustainability.
