As you know, we pride ourselves on being an eco-conscious skincare brand with sustainability at its heart. We’ve always been committed to making sure that every material we use within our business is fully recyclable and we never use any unnecessary packaging, like outer boxes or cellophane. We’ve now gone one step further to improve our sustainability and carbon footprint! Below are some exciting changes that are being rolled out across our Meadow Skincare range over the next few weeks!
Biodegradable and compostable jars
We are so excited to announce that we have made a change to our 15ml and 30ml jars that we think is a huge step forward for our sustainability as a brand. We are moving our products from glass jars to a wood-based material that is inspired by Nordic nature. It is lighter and less fragile than the glass with an added bonus that it is fully biodegradable and compostable! Whether you place your empty jars into your general waste or your compost, the jars will disintegrate without leaving permanent micro-plastics behind! We’ve trialled and tested this material and it doesn’t affect the quality of our products in any way. We will be looking to move all our glass jars over as and when different size options become available (hopefully in the Spring!) Our Vitamin-Rich Botanical Day Oil and Overnight Replenishing Oil will remain in our beautiful Miron bottles.
Sugar Cane Biodegradable Labels
As well as our 15ml and 30ml jars being biodegradable, we now have new sugar-cane labels coming across the whole range of Meadow products! These are made from a bi-product of sugar-cane that is normally thrown away. The face of the label and the adhesive backing are both fully biodegradable and compostable. So you will now be able to throw your entire jar straight into the bin or the compost and not have to think about it again!
These changes will be rolled out over the next few weeks, but you may have already received something with our new labels on. Going forwards, any purchase of our Starter Kit will have the 15ml Gently Nourishing Cleansing Balm in our new jars and you will soon see your favourite 30ml products in them too!
