Packaging


We're making conscious choices to select packaging that lessens the negative impact on our planet:

Our signature red vessels are made with recyclable glass

We print with vegetable-based UV curable ink

Our boxes are made with FSC paper

Plastic Neutral

As of November 6, 2023 we are committed to collecting 5,500+ pounds of plastic (that's over 250,000 water bottles!) annually through our partnership with CleanHub.

Empowering Women

We support a waste management program called Green Worms: a door-to-door waste collection service in coastal areas of Kerala in southern India. Green Worms prevents plastic from entering the ocean, while creating jobs for over 300 women, who now have the possibility to send their children to school, and have more financial control to lead independent lives and achieve their long-term life goals.

Our journey toward sustainability involves constant learning, and meaningful change.
