Here’s the thing - recycling and compost systems are complex and dependent on market fluctuations (see 7 Things You Didn't Know About Recycling). Selecting durable, highly recyclable materials with a refill option just makes sense.
We’ve selected glass and aluminum containers because they’re more durable and more likely to be recycled than plastic ones (EPA 2017). In the event you are unable to reuse or refill your bottles and jars, they can be recycled.
Caps are aluminum lined with polyethylene and can be recycled with aluminum. Collect several caps and recycle them together to increase likelihood of recycling.
Unfortunately, droppers are not recyclable and should be thrown away. Consider reusing your droppers by ordering a refill, or repurpose elsewhere in your home (on-the-go salad dressing, anyone?).
We ship plastic free by using recycled paper stuffing. Our shipping boxes are made of 100% recycled cardboard, and can be recycled or composted.
