Let’s Talk About Sustainability

Sustainability has always been at the core of Graydon Skincare’s philosophy.

As a brand whose strength lies in results-driven and clinically-proven superfood ingredients, we’ve always had a deep appreciation for Mother Nature and all the magic she brings us. And so, undoubtedly, being mindful about our eco footprint is one of our main missions.

According to Commercial Waste, the beauty industry creates 120 billion units of packaging every year. This accounts for 146 million tonnes of plastic annually.

That’s just awful and puts us in a dilemma.

On one hand, we wish to honour Mother Nature and do our best to contribute to the sustainability of our planet, while providing you with the best nature-inspired products. On the other hand, we’ve been contributing to a bigger problem.

So, I’ve decided that enough is enough. We need to do better. Period. Earlier this year, we moved our Face Food and Intimacy Oil bottles to post consumer recycled plastic, known as PCR and have set a goal of moving towards more glass packaging in our other products.

And today, I’m very excited to announce that we’re partnering with a very special environmental organization.

Introducing our partnership with Plastic Oceans

Established in 2016, Plastic Oceans is a non-profit organization and Registered Canadian Charity. It belongs to a larger global organization with offices in the US (global headquarters), Chile, Mexico, and Europe. In addition to organizing and implementing shoreline clean ups, Plastic Oceans' mission is to raise awareness about plastic pollution. They create awareness initiatives that target school children, policy awareness and consumer behaviour... and they even produce documentaries.

While plastic, at the moment, is still an integral part of our every day lives and unavoidable at times, there are changes that each of us can make to do our part and live more sustainably.

 

And to do our part, we’ve come up with our own initiative.

Introducing the Graydon Skincare Feel Good Collection - crafted to make a difference in preserving our planet.

So what is it?

It’s a skincare set that features 5 of our most sustainable and eco-friendly products. With each purchase of our Feel Good Collection, Graydon Skincare will donate $5 to Plastic Oceans to help them transform global shorelines and process marine litter into alternative fuels.

Every $25 we donate will clean up 1km of shoreline, which will help us to reach our goal of cleaning up 1000km. Each product in the Feel Good Collection can also be purchased individually, where $1 will be donated per item. 

We know that this is not a perfect solution. And we know it won’t solve every single one of our waste issues. However, it sets us in the right direction. And in the near future, we plan to do even more by taking greater action to improve the sustainability of our brand and help preserve our planet.

For now, if you wish to join the good fight, please support our ‘Feel Good’ Collection initiative! ❤️
