There are so many ways both big and small that we can contribute to the health of our planet. Integrating sustainable practices into one's routine will impact the world and generations to come. At Etta+Billie, we pride ourselves in our sustainable practices and strive each day to reduce our carbon footprint. Here are just a few ways we implement sustainability in our production process.

Packaging

Our lotions, oils, and liquid soaps are all bottled in recyclable glass packaging. Not only are the bottles recyclable, but they serve well when repurposed as dish soap dispensers or flower vases. Also, all the labels on our glass products easily slide off with a little warm water and soap mixture. 

The newest edition to our product family is our natural deodorant. When formulating the product, it was imperative that its packaging was eco-friendly and compostable. After much trial and testing, we landed on a fun paper tube (similar to a push-pop) to house our deos that easily breaks down once disposed. 

Composting

Production can oftentimes create an excessive amount of waste. To ensure there is a limit on waste in the studio, we compost all food scraps and paper waste products. In addition, all paper used for printing is re-used and eventually recycled. 

Cleaning

The beauty of mother nature is that there is a natural alternative for virtually every modern product on the shelves today. Cleaning supplies contribute a great amount of chemicals and fragrances into the environment. Instead of opting in for conventional cleaners with toxins, we create our own made of a simple mixture of vinegar, citrus, and dish soap. We’ve got an in-depth recipe on our blog with exact measurements found here.

We can all make small but mighty changes to our daily routines to eliminate waste and toxins in our environment. Mother nature has so graciously given us the land we live on, it’s only right that we care for her and do our part in making the globe a cleaner place.
