Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability is a buzzword at the moment but it needs to become more than just a buzzword. We have to realise that if we do not change our actions now and drastically, we will not be able to avoid the depletion of our natural resources on our planet. At Pure Purpose we are passionate about sustainability and we believe the future of the planet is our joint responsibility.
We decided early on that we would use only recyclable materials because if we did not, we could not expect anyone else to. All our scrubs, facial treatments and deodorants are packaged in glass. Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity.
Glass has a nonporous surface and will not absorb what is stored in it, or germs and smells. Glass can be safely washed at high temperatures and can be used and reused again and again.
We have chosen to reduce the amount of plastic we use in our packaging to a minimum. We are hoping to eradicate the use of plastic lids entirely in the next few years.
We use packaging without unnecessary frills and trimmings. We do not provide plastic spatulas or extra boxes for our glass jars because we believe less packing is more!
Return Your Packaging To Us
Whilst recycling is key to sustainability, the reality is the UK currently recycles around 50% of glass and while this figure has doubled over the last five years, it still lags behind other countries. This is why we have decided to not only use recyclable packaging but also reuse packaging.
Our customers are encouraged to return their packing to us. Enjoy your product, pop the empty and undamaged glass jar and lid in the packaging it arrived in, and post it back to us! Once we have received your used, undamaged containers, we will give you a 15% discount off your next purchase. We sterilize any packaging when it is returned to us, which results in squeaky clean containers ready to be reused!
Simple but effective.
