While reducing waste is hot topic right now, it is something I take VERY seriously at Pretty Savage HQ. Every decision made about the packaging of our Savages and their accessories is made with our environment in mind.
The Manufacturing Process
This starts with the manufacturing process. When making your favourites, I use tea towels for cleaning up to avoid throwing an unnecessary amount of paper towels away. Where the use of paper towels is unavoidable (which is VERY rarely) I use paper towels made from sustainable sources. I don’t believe a tree should not be used to wipe up mess.
I also proudly uses green energy so Mother Nature is respected. My ingredients are also sourced in a responsible way and my suppliers are always looking at ways to reduce their plastic waste too. At worst, I reuse or recycle the unavoidable plastic I do receive. This is why sometimes you will get some bubble wrap in your order.
The packaging I use for your Savage soap is made from 100% recycled card. My signature Savage Soaks and Steamers black box is made from 97% recycled materials. Of course, I encourage you earth-loving people out there to reuse the boxes but if you can’t I do ask that you recycle them. My labels are also printed on 100% recycled card and printed with vegetable dyes to keep things extra environmentally-friendly. Any new printing and packaging options will try and meet the highest standards where possible. Lastly, we also refrain from printing out invoices or packing lists for our smaller orders so there is less waste. Although you will still get your personal message.
I have also sourced accessories for your Savages that are as earth-friendly as I could find. The soap dishes are glass so they should last a long time (forever if you don’t have butter fingers!) and if they don’t they can be recycled. Bagnificient Savage is made from super-soft (and sustainable) bamboo. Added to this, all your Savage accessories are also made right here in England by some pretty talented people.
Plastic Free Wax Melts
You can also fragrance your home without having to throw away all that unnecessary packaging. Made with a soya wax blend and sold in completely plastic free packaging, you can not go wrong with these guys.
While I am far from being completely waste free I am doing everything I can to move that way. Every step, no matter how small, makes a difference to our earth so by choosing to shop with Pretty Savage, you can be sure I will do my utmost to respect this one and only planet of ours. Of course, I am always open to new tips and idea on reducing waste and being kind to the earth so if you have any, let mi know.
