As you may already know we pride ourselves on being cruelty free, vegan friendly and environmentally conscious here at The Soap House. Small ways that we do our bit are we always recycle all of our packaging and keep packaging to a minimum, we use eco filling on boxes, our boxes can be recycled and we use a company for our electric who uses 91% recycled energy. While these are good efforts in playing our part we want to do more.
We are going to be offering going forward the option to have your soaps and bath bombs wrapped in recyclable paper - the bath bombs will be wrapped in acid free tissue which is fully recyclable and will protect them during shipping, you will receive all of the ingredient and batch information on a sheet which would usually be on the cello bag.
We will also be offering the soap loaves wrapped in paper - the loaf could be sliced or unsliced whichever is your preference but it will be wrapped in one piece of paper (slices placed back together in a loaf) rather than being cello wrapped individually. Again the paper can be recycled.
Our bath salts will be being switched to kraft paper bags rather than the cello bags that we currently use.
For those who prefer to have their products as we traditionally have wrapped them in cello then you don't have to change - we can still provide this service but for those who want to explore or try plastic free they will be able to select to have their products Naked of Plastic - you simply select your preference when adding the item to your shopping basket.
If you have any questions about this or would like to chat about the options please do not hesitate to get in touch with me, I will be happy to help.
