The decision to eliminate plastic from our brand in 2016 wasn’t an easy one and it took way longer than we ever thought.
We didn’t want to just eliminate plastic, we wanted to make sure we created the most sustainable packaging possible.
It’s no secret we live in a plastic world.
Every bit of plastic ever created still exists and with 97% of deodorant packaging being made from plastic, we needed to show the industry that there are other more sustainable options.
Here are the 3 Reasons We Ditched Plastic:
Plastic never goes away.
And contrary to popular belief, it can’t be recycled. It can only be downcycled and turned into a cheaper version of plastic.
Plastic is also made from crude oil.
Right now, plastic on the ocean out numbers sea life SIX to ONE.
Everyday animals become victims of plastic pollution. The average marine bird has the equivalent of 2 plastic water bottles in their stomachs, turtles are constantly getting tangled in nets, bags and inhaling straws, first are full of plastic and then ultimately end up in us, whales are swallowing plastic by the cubic meter and even cattle are swallowing plastic.
BPA (or variations of BPA) are found in almost all plastics and this alters our hormones and disrupts our endocrine system. What is scary, is that 93% of all Americans have BPA in their bodies and BPA is linked to all sorts of scary things, like:
Breast, Brain and Prostate Cancer
Man Boobs ('Moobs')
This should help you understand the dangers associated with plastic and encourage you to make positive changes in your lifestyle.
