How do you make sure the products are sustainable?
To make products truly sustainable, we do our best to find manufacturers in Europe or as close as possible to it. However, some products cannot be locally resourced, that is why we also focus on organic and 100% recyclable materials. We also check the manufacturers’ certifications and control the production site to confirm that the whole manufacturing process is sustainable.
How do you ensure that the packing and delivery process is sustainable?
Instead of using only new boxes and filling material, we like to reuse boxes and material we already have to prevent them from going to waste. Before we reuse the boxes, we remove the old labels and only add paper tape to seal them. Our filing material is made of kraft paper or shredded old paper. Our brochure is made from recycled paper. Our brand sticker is paper-based. We also use a few shipping options that offset the carbon footprint. Plus, we plant a tree with Tree-Nation for every order to make sure we are offsetting the shipping emissions.
All Beewise's products are 100% plastic-free?
We focus on providing you with plastic-free alternatives for all your daily-use products. Almost 100% of our products are plastic-free. The only exception? The bamboo toothbrush bristles. We still didn’t find a supplier with good quality, plastic-free and vegan bristles. We believe we cannot simply switch the plastic bristles that are still more efficient in our oral hygiene than a plastic-free option. We will only do that when we will be sure about the brushing quality as well. In any case, the plastic bristles are recyclable.And looking for a local material to produce our soap dishes, we decided to design a soap dish made of recycled plastic from Amsterdam’s waste. It is the most sustainable solution we found for a product that can last much longer in a humid environment than wood or bamboo. Plus, it is produced locally with a local resource (waste). We will always do our best to find the most sustainable option for all products we offer.
Is the packaging recyclable and also home compostable?
Many companies focus on offering sustainable products but forget to take the packaging into consideration. For example, having a plastic window or using bleached paper. We aim to provide the customer with a whole zero waste experience. All our packaging is made of kraft paper that is 100% recyclable and can also be home composted.
Why kraft paper? Because it is produced from all-natural ingredients such as pulp from all types of wood, while conventional paper uses specific woods. Bleaching is not involved, where toxic chemicals are used and pose serious risks to the environment. Kraft paper is also a lightweight packaging material that helps keep a lower shipping emission.
