Sustainability is why we’re doing what we’re doing, but to make long term changes, we must realize it’s a process and not everything can be perfect from the start. We work tirelessly every day to improve our systems, reduce waste, emissions and increase our impact.
By growing our own botanicals to make beauty products out of, and shortening our supply chain, we’re bringing raw materials closer to home, which means we’re reducing the amount of carbon emissions previously used to grow, process, transport and produce those same botanicals grown halfway around the world.
While we’d like 100% of our ingredients to come from our rooftops or even locally, that is not currently possible in today’s sourcing environment. This will be a big goal of ours as we continue to grow literally and physically, but to hold us off until then, the rest of the ingredients we use in production, that are not rooftop grown are either USDA organic or Cosmos compliant.
We’re not about giving money to or being part of “sustainability” organizations to offload our carbon emissions elsewhere or from our bottom lines. We’re investing directly in our business practices, supply chain and infrastructure to offset emissions from the start.
By doing all of this work, we hope to bring the value back to what’s really important… The planet and YOU.
