It's our responsibility to put the planet first

Reuse & recycle


This planet of ours is precious. From the changing of the seasons, to Niagara Falls, to the rainforest – there are many natural wonders to behold. But, their existence is not guaranteed. If we, let alone our children (and their children) want to enjoy all this world has to offer, we all, collectively and individually, need to do all that we can to ensure we look after this gift we’ve all been given.

For those not convinced of how urgent the situation is, here are some things that we urge you to consider.

  • Sea levels are rising at their fastest rate in 2,000 years
  • The ocean is 26 percent more acidic than before the Industrial Revolution
  • More greenhouse gases are in our atmosphere than any time in human history
  • Arctic sea ice and glaciers are melting

Let those facts sink in, but know that these statements are just the tip of the (ever melting) iceberg. For more information, check out NASA’s stance on climate change.


So, why are we telling you this? 

Well, because it’s important. But also because we want you to know that at Faith in Nature, we understand the scale of the problem and believe we have an ethical duty of care to ensure our products harness, instead of harm, nature and the environment.

Our beliefs are paramount to our business and shape the actions that we take. It might sound glib, but doing good is important to us.

That’s why our business decisions put the environment first by examining our plastic waste.

Before we tell you of the steps we’ve taken to meet our ethical responsibilities, we’d like to be open about something we are working on. Currently, our soaps come wrapped in plastic.

We’re not happy about this but you can be rest assured that we’re actively working on sourcing environmentally-friendly alternatives as we speak.

Watch this space and believe us – no one will be prouder than us when we are able to announce we’ve found an alternative.


Actions shaped by environmental concern

  • Brave Botanical bottles are made from HDPE (high density polyethylene) so can be recycled
  • These same bottles are made from at least 96% Sugarcane (so they don’t deplete fossil fuels)
  • All of our 250ml, 300ml and 400ml bottles are RPET (this means they are made from recycled plastic)
  • Our Home Care packaging is made from HDPE (High-density polyethylene) except for our Washing Up Liquid bottle that is made from PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)
  • In our skincare range, our 150ml bottles are not only made from PE (Polyethylene) but we recently switched to a new bottle that’s still 150ml in size, but uses 40% less plastic
  • Our 50ml pump packs are made from LDPE (Low-density polyethylene)
  • You can recycle your Faith in Nature bottles, by using this link to discover where you can recycle at home
  • All our cardboard, with the exception of our 18 packs of Soap, is made from 100% recycled material. We are currently reviewing the card used for our 18 packs of Bar Soaps to bring this in line with the rest of our recycled packaging


There's still work to be done

Although we’re proud of our achievements so far in creating natural products in an ethical manner, we are not prepared to rest on our laurels – we’ll endeavour to stay at the forefront of environmentally-friendly beauty.

If you’re looking for ways to reduce your plastic use, check out our handy blog article.

Also, it might be worth considering purchasing our popular products such as hand wash, shampoo, shower gel, washing up liquid and laundry liquid in the 5 litre bottles that we offer.

In doing so, you massively reduce the amount of waste that needs to be recycled. Plus larger bottles are made from HDPE, which is easily recycle for many local councils.

For  our customers, buying big provides a good economic alternative to buying smaller bottles, but if you like using smaller bottles, simply purchase a reusable pump dispenser to make it easier to decant the liquid into other-sized bottles.
