Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
From the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch, to our overflowing landfills, it’s clear we should be using less plastic. According to EcoWatch, enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the Earth four times. From encouraging people to switch to washable, reusable fabric shower curtain liners, to using fully recyclable and non-toxic materials in our Signature Plastic-Free Packaging, we do our part to reduce single-use plastics and promote a lower waste lifestyle.
A Larger Purpose
In August of 2016, our dream to make monthly donations to support a non-profit that aligns with our mission to make our planet healthier, cleaner and sustainable for many generations to come became a reality.
- The NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council). We proudly donate a percentage of our profits each month to help fund the various campaigns that the NRDC champions.
The “NRDC works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. We combine the power of more than two million members and online activists with the expertise of some 500 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild."
The NRDC has strength in numbers. It is made of people like us, who are concerned about the changes taking place in our environment. It includes a full staff of scientific experts who present fact-based evidence and legal and political advocates who make sure the voices of concerned global citizens are heard.
For more information about NRDC's environmental campaigns, please go to www.NRDC.org and find out how to get involved. We hope you'll take a moment to take a look at their website and consider supporting them as well.
- GlobalGiving is the first and largest global crowdfunding community that connects vetted nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country around the world."

For Puerto Rican relief efforts, we have chosen to support Red de Fundaciones de Puerto Rico. They focus "on the poorest communities in coastal and rural areas, and in the offshore islands of Vieques and Culebra. A part of the program involves clearing roads, preparing meals, distributing cash and medicines, and connecting people with needed services."
