As we celebrate Earth Day 2016, Life Elements is very excited to announce our recent partnership with TerraCycle, a company that shares our goal to “eliminate the idea of waste.” We are already approved members of Leave No Trace and this combination of partners that have vetted our products and practices is an important part of our ethos and supply chain.
Although we already do everything we can to make our wipes sustainably and to reuse them in every way possible, partnering with TerraCycle to effectively recycle all of our used wipes and packaging from our entire line is an important step towards creating a better, more environmentally friendly wet wipe.
This step with Terracycle is a small but important evolution for us. It means that all used wipes and packaging (including our Healing body care tubes) we collect at events are 100% recyclable. As we grow and scale, we’ll be able to offer additional options for ALL our customers to recycle everything they aren't able to re-purpose.
We will now have TerraCycle bins at all of our events, including trade shows and festivals, to collect used wipes to be properly disposed of. We now join the ranks of companies like PG&E, Gu and Clif Bar who have taken this extra step towards environmental stewardship. While our natural ingredients already give us a leg up on our competitors, we believe aligning ourselves with TerraCycle is another of the countless ways Life Elements proves time and time again we are on the forefront of sustainability in the wipe industry.
