Our Environmental Commitment
The way our products impact the environment and how we can make radical changes is at the heart of what we do
Most of all we strive to ensure that we work with suppliers that have the following ethical considerations when sourcing their products.
Products should be sourced sustainably, there should be no negative environmental impact on endangered species. There should be minimal production emissions during transit, there should be careful use of resources to process ingredients. There should be no genetic modification of plants used for production of their products.
Workers should have the right to union membership, production facilities should respect health and safety. Workers should have fair pay and fair working hours, there should be no discrimination and no child labour.
Animal protection: There should be no animal testing of ingredients or manufactured products. Where possible they should only use vegetarian or vegan ingredients.
The distance ingredients travel is minimised. Packaging materials should be recyclable or biodegradable where possible.
And that’s not all…
We are proud to be involved with all of these amazing eco-friendly initiatives to help protect the environment as well as our unique pots for life packaging.
At All Earth Minerals, we strive for the highest quality minerals to compliment many skin types which are animal friendly, vegan friendly and cruelty free. As some of you know, All Earth Minerals HQ is in the beautiful Cornish countryside where looking after our stunning coastlines and oceans is always at the heart of our lifestyle. We seek out packaging that is sustainable, as plastic free as possible and with a minimal carbon footprint. The All Earth journey has been blossoming for over 10 years with the support of our incredible customers who share our passion, ethics and ethos.
Not only are we passionate about ethical makeup in ethical packaging, but we love when we find like minded companies and work together to make a healthier mother earth.
Ecologi is a company we could not wait to partner with. Let us tell you why…
Ecologi tackles the current climate crisis by planting trees to keep our earth’s temperature from rising. They are partnered The Eden Reforestation Projects which plant millions of trees around the world each month. Our donations at All Earth minerals is invested into projects that remove more greenhouse gasses than your own carbon footprint puts in.
The Eden Projects
Eden Reforestation Projects is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. They hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Their “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures.
We have also introduced our unique “Eco Swap” Service where, when you purchase our products you can send your old brand plastic and mixed material containers/brushes to us in a stamped addressed bag and we can fully recycle them through the Terracycle project. Just choose this option on checkout.
Did you know that make up brushes can not be recycled through your normal recycling due to the handle and bristles being different materials?
This is why we also offer our Terracycle service for disposal of these too as they can be fully recycled, yes we really have thought of everything!
