Embracing zero-waste

What is zero-waste, why it matters, and our zero-waste promise.

At Lovett Sundries, we are on a mission to embrace a more sustainable future through our commitment to zero waste. Our journey started in 2015, and over the years, we have dedicated ourselves to reducing our ecological footprint, making eco-friendly choices, and empowering our customers to contribute to a greener world. We hope you'll take a minute to read about our zero-waste philosophy, its importance, and the steps we're taking to make a difference. But first…

What is Zero-Waste?

Zero waste is not just an abstract concept; it's a way of life that can influence every decision we face. It revolves around reducing, reusing, and recycling materials to send as little waste as possible to landfills or incinerators, and making decisions to reduce our collective impact on our shared environment. At Lovett Sundries, we take this ethos to heart in every aspect of our design, production, and fulfillment.

Why does it Matter?

Environmental Impact: Traditional manufacturing and packaging practices contribute to pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and resource depletion. By keeping zero-waste principles in mind, we can help reduce these harmful effects on our planet.

Conservation of Resources: Zero waste encourages the conservation of resources by recycling and reusing materials. Extending the life cycle of products and packaging helps preserve valuable resources and energy required for their production.

Protecting Wildlife: Improper waste disposal, particularly of plastics, poses significant risks to wildlife and marine ecosystems. By striving for a zero-waste life, we aim to minimize our impact on these delicate environments.

Customer Empowerment: Embracing zero waste empowers you, our customers, to make environmentally conscious choices. By providing sustainable products and packaging, we help you contribute to a greener future.

Our Zero Waste Promise

Commitment to Natural, Plant-Based Ingredients: We believe in the power of nature, which is why we use all-natural, plant-based ingredients in our products. Beyond the benefits to the end user, all-natural ingredients minimize the environmental impact of industrial-scale production.

Thoughtful Packaging Choices: Our product packaging is designed with sustainability in mind. We have eliminated unnecessary plastic components and introduced plastic-free alternatives like "refills" for products with spray pumps or droppers. Our packaging materials include glass bottles, kraft paper boxes for our soaps and solid shampoo and conditioner, aluminum tins, glass jars, and metal lids—all designed and selected for reuse or recyclability.

Sustainable Shipping Practices: We are dedicated to shipping orders in a plastic-free manner. Our shipping materials, such as cardboard boxes, water-activated paper tape, and kraft paper void fill, are 100% recyclable and biodegradable, ensuring safe and sustainable delivery. Even the way we pack shipments is designed to reduce wasted space and lighten our impact on the shipping infrastructure.

Constant Innovation and Improvement: Our journey towards zero waste is ongoing. We are going to make mistakes along the way, and we are committed to learning from them. We actively seek feedback from our community to explore innovative processes and materials that further reduce our environmental impact.
