Third Stone Botanicals are excited to commemorate Earth Day 2021 from April 20-22 with the launch of our plastic-free reusable and recyclable aluminium and glass packaging!
Micro plastics are now so ubiquitous in our environment they have been detected in rainfall.¹ The best way to reduce the prevalence of micro plastics in ourselves, our ecosystem, and everything we eat, drink, and use, is to close the life cycle and reduce our reliance on plastics.
Reducing our environmental footprint has always been a top priority for TSB, and although 2020 was an economically challenging year for small business, we have been busy sourcing sustainable, reliable, functional, and beautiful packaging to complement our handcrafted naturopathic skin and body care range. Have a look at what we have come up with!
We are starting the launch aptly with TSB’s earthy Clay Masks and Scrub, now packaged in aluminium screw-top tins. Did you know that over 70% of all aluminium ever produced is still in use?² Aluminium is light, rust-resistant, and can be repeatedly recycled with minimal cost, waste, and emissions compared to other packaging materials. You can recycle our tins but we think they are beautiful enough to repurpose.
Check out our new packaging for the ever-popular Almond Rose Cleansing Scrub, the powerfully detoxifying Green Tea Cleansing Mask and the age-defying Pomegranate Restoring Mask. Mix 2tsp with water to make a smooth paste. When kept dry, these preservative-free clay products will last at least 12 months in the tins.
Next to launch are the organic Face Serums in black glass bottles. The precious concentrated certified organic plant and essential oils with added vitamins are kept in optimal condition in our UV-protective 100% recyclable glass bottles.
Check out our new glass packaging for the Damask Rose Face & Neck Serum for dry & damaged skin and the Lavender Face & Neck Serum for sensitive skin. TSB’s gentle Calendula Make-Up Remover is now also packaged in black glass.
All TSB orders are lovingly packed and posted in reusable and 100% home-compostable;
- Kraft paper
- bubble mailers
- cellotape, and
We have considered every angle to help reduce waste. TSB are proud partners of Hero Packaging.
Third Stone Botanicals is delighted to help our customers reduce plastic waste with our new packaging. Every little thoughtful step helps to #RestoreOurEarth
