Leading the industry in sustainability
Industry-First Green Initiatives
Buy One, Plant One
Trees are essential for life: they are the largest plants and the longest-living species on Earth, and they store carbon, stabilize the soil, and store oxygen. Connecting the past with the present and reminding us of our history, trees provide us with tools and shelter. In partnership with Plant-It 2020, emerginC and you help better our planet by planting a viable, indigenous tree in a non-harvest location for every retail-sized product sold.
Bamboo Toothbrush Giveaway
Our plastic waste story doesn’t just end at eliminating plastic straws (we gave away 50,000 metal straws already). One billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year in the United States. They end up in our landfills or dumped into the oceans and can take up to 500 years to decompose—they are essentially indestructible. We are here to help you swap out your old plastic toothbrush habit with an eco-friendly alternative. A reusable, 100% biodegradable, plastic-free, natural bristled, bamboo toothbrush will come FREE in every order. Protected in a fully recyclable kraft paper bag and ready to use. Every step we take to eliminate plastic helps. If not us, all of us, then who?
Rainwater, wind, and floods transport plastic waste from land to the oceans, posing a threat to our precious ecosystems. In collaboration with CleanHub, emerginC actively engages in the collection of plastic waste before it reaches these vital ecosystems. Our efforts enable the safe retrieval and recovery of plastic waste bound for the ocean, fostering clean environments and generating sustainable employment opportunities in the global south. Committed to our cause, we aim to eliminate 11,023.11 pounds of plastic waste, contributing to a healthier planet.
Fair Trade Ingredients
Fair trade means fair pay and working conditions for farmers and supports sustainable practices that minimize our environmental footprint, so we incorporate fair trade ingredients in our products wherever possible. Our fair trade ingredients include aloe, shea butter, green tea, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and olive fruit oil.
Plant Your Planet
The Pollinator Wildflower Mix provides gardeners an opportunity to help feed our stressed pollinator populations by providing nectar-rich flowers. Native bees, honeybees, bumblebees, butterflies, and hummingbirds will all benefit from having the flowers in this mix available to them.
Grow Your Own
Growing your own vegetables puts you in control of the food you eat. Help us help you start your own vegetable garden with USDA organic mixed lettuce and arugula seeds, included with every order!
Our office is run on wind power and approximately 80% of our products are manufactured with wind power.
As part of our continued effort to cut down on fossil fuel use and reduce our carbon footprint, we are constantly working to better our packaging choices. Our sustainable packaging includes glass jars with biodegradable resin caps, bottles made from sustainably grown Brazilian sugarcane plastic, and other biodegradable options. We are constantly working to reduce our plastic use with the active goal of being plastic-free.
