Sustainability

We pledge to continuously improve the sustainability of  our products. We are proud of our achievements so far however, we endeavour to do more.

Earthy nail polish colours

Bamboo Cap

We have developed a bamboo cap that seals the bottle to ensure not only the  longevity of the nail polish but also replace a single use only plastic cap.

 

Our bamboo cap is decomposable and highly sustainable due to the following facts;

  • Bamboo is a grass

  • Bamboo absorbs five times the amount of carbon dioxide as trees

  • Bamboo self regenerates in 3-4 months

  • Bamboo contains natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties

  • Bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than trees

Bio-source in the lab

Sustainable Production

  • All of our nail polishes and treatments are produced with a platinum 2020 Ecovadis Sustainability rating.

  • Removal of all plastic inner and outer production packaging.

  • Removal of all excess packaging.

  • Limited level of VOC emissions and optimized extraction lowering the impact on the environment.

  • 97% of hazardous raw materials, 83% of the total waste are recycled, and 100% of industrial wastewaters are treated.

  • A waste management policy that promotes reusable tanks and drums and recycling of solvents for cleaning operations.

Recycle and Reuse

Earthy Nail Polish are proud to offer a return reuse program . This program allows for a circular economy with the materials used. The program works by returning the used nail polish bottles and bamboo caps to us. We clean, sterilize and reuse the materials. Anything that is beyond use is processed through our recycling management partner. Our current return and reuse rate is 16% - we recognize that the shelf life is 24 months for the nail polish contributing to the delay in returns.

Please return your used bottles and caps in person or by post to:
