Malie Organics is, always has been, and always will be a staunch supporter of eco-friendly living. We see the immense value Earth’s natural resources have brought to us which is why we are committed to preserving them. As a natural beauty brand, we believe it is our responsibility to promote sustainable living practices. After all, we’re only as beautiful as the Earth in which we live! We bring this mentality with us to our manufacturing and packaging processes, especially when it comes to our tropical shampoos and conditioners. Environmentally friendly hair care is more involved than you may know. Learning about what’s behind it may help you make more informed decisions when it comes to your next hair care purchase.
What is Eco-Friendly Shampoo Packaging?
Did you know that an estimated 552 million shampoo bottlesare sent to landfills every year? Given that landfills are some of the largest contributors to harmful greenhouse gasses, this is a major problem in the hair care and beauty industry.
There are many ways beauty companies can be “sustainable” and eco-friendly, one of which being through their packaging. Not everyone knows just how impactful sustainable shampoo packaging can be but that’s what we’re here to show you! To be considered sustainable, shampoo packaging must use products derived from either the Earth or recycled materials. This type of packaging relies less on traditional manufacturing processes that expend copious amounts of water and energy and more on reusing resources that are already in production.
There are various methods for making sustainable beauty products. Closed-loop production (CLM) is one of the most popular. This process incorporates materials that can be reused, therefore closing the loop of post-consumer collected waste. Companies like Malie Organics that use PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) bottles for shampoo products are part of the sustainability solution.
Companies That Use Sustainable Shampoo Packaging
There are many hair care and beauty companies that use sustainable shampoo packaging as part of their practices. How they do it, how strong their packaging is, and how effective their products are all factors of consideration when making a purchase.
This eco-friendly brand is known for their shampoo and conditioner bars, which are inherently sustainable in nature. The waste-free company uses minimal packaging; the little that is used is also compostable.
Faith in Nature
The UK-based beauty and hair care brand is committed to using as little new plastic as possible. Faith in Nature’s standard-size bottles have been made from 100% recycled plastic since their inception. Their larger bottles are also primarily made from recycled ingredients, except for the caps and pumps.
Known by many as the go-to for refill pouches, Public Goods is one of the most popular mainstream brands to enter the sustainable shampoo packaging world. In addition to hair care and beauty products, they also offer memberships for household cleaners and grocery bottles. Important to note, however, is that Public Goods follows a subscription-based model.
Not only are we one of the leading tropical hair care brands, but Malie Organics is also a trailblazer when it comes to sustainable shampoo packaging. Our natural shampoo and conditioners are housed in 100% PCR bottles. The post-consumer recycled material of these bottles provides another life to packaging and plastics, furthering our commitment to preserving Earth’s natural resources. Plus, our bottles can be re-recycled once they’re empty. How’s that for closing the loop!
How to Make Your Shampoo Sustainable
There are several ways to upgrade your hair care routine and make it more eco-friendly. Some tips include:
1. Buy from sustainable beauty brands
Companies like Malie Organics are dedicated to making eco-friendly living easier. In addition to our sustainable shampoo bottles and packaging, the formulas themselves are also clean. Our natural shampoos and conditioners are 70% organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and never tested on animals. They’re also free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petrochemicals, mineral oil, silicone, PEGs, and gluten. Using our shampoos means you can feel good about the products as well as the beautiful hair they deliver.
2. Use refill bottles
Take your sustainability efforts to the next level by using refill shampoo bottles. Available in plastic and glass, these bottles are designed to be reused again and again. It’s a good idea to purchase separate refill shampoo bottles and refill conditioner bottles so the products can be easily replenished.
3. Buy in bulk
The best way to maximize your refill shampoo and conditioner bottles is to buy in bulk. Purchasing a gallon of shampoo at a time will not only save resources but it will also save you money! All you need to do is dispense the shampoo into your refillable shampoo bottles. You’ll get to enjoy the same exact formula as our single-use products while giving back to the planet. One gallon jugs of Malie’s natural shampoo equals 8 of our 16 oz bottles. All gallon products have 2-year shelf lives, so you’ll have plenty of time to use them. In fact, if you love them as much as we do, you may run out!
Sustainability isn’t a fad; it’s a way of life. Living beautifully requires a commitment from all of us every day. As a consumer, your changes don’t have to be monumental. Making simple switches like purchasing from companies that prioritize sustainable packaging and manufacturing processes could make a huge difference. Best of all, when you turn to Malie Organics for your hair care and beauty products, you’ll never have to worry about compromised quality or effectiveness. Our promise to uphold the integrity of our products remains strong. It is this dedication to beautiful living that has always been a mainstay for our company.
