When we formulated our line of hair care products we chose to go the package-free route not only to reduce the amount of single use plastics our customers wound up with, but to reduce the amount of water that winds up being taken out of the ecosystem and bottled up. We've tallied up some numbers from the six months since we introduced our solid shampoo and solid conditioner lines so we will have something other than our great looking hair to feel good about. Take a look!
Number of plastic bottles and caps that will not end up in a landfill.
Weight in pounds of that many PET plastic shampoo bottles.
Amount of square footage those bottles would have taken up.
Gallons of potable drinking water that has been free to evaporate and condense as it pleases, rather than being sequestered in 298 feet worth of plastic bottles.
Pounds of parabens that have not gone down the drain.
Number of great hair days enjoyed by everyone who's been enjoying NOT rubbing...
Pounds of sulfates on their heads!
