the F.O.R principle
you may see some of our products are labelled as being F.O.R. this stands for
because why should anyone else or our planet have to suffer for the benefit of our wellbeing?
they do not. it is as simple as that.
we have taken the time to mindfully take into account what is behind every product we make.
yes a pillow could be "ethically + sustainably hand sewn in australia," but where did the fabric come from? a sweat shop?
how was it made? were the toxins dumped in waterways?
when we say our products are ethical and sustainable we mean it.
our F.O.R coffee scrub
the coffee bean plants have been certified fair-trade + organically grown, we then, recycle the grinds from coffee consumption, condition them & re-purpose them into an amazing scrub that rejuvenates your skin!!
this prevents them going into landfill...
.... coffee grinds over a 100 year span of decomposition, will emit methane gas; which is 34 times more destructive than carbon dioxide, and one of the heavily contributing factors to our global warming crisis.
the earth's population drink over 2.25 billion cups of coffee each day which results in about 500,000 tonnes of wet waste coffee grounds!!
SO we work with local cafes who use fair-trade & organic coffee beans and recycle, condition & re-purpose these coffee grinds into scrub & reduce landfill
we use this fibre in our swaddles, beanie + bootie sets, beauty headbands & re-usable face cleansers
did you know...
tencel is recognised as the most eco-friendly + sustainable fibre in the world!!
