We are committed to doing our part to protect the Earth. Environmental protection is a personal concern for us. Like you, we want to breathe clean air, drink safe water, and enjoy the beauty of our forests. Acting responsibly on behalf of the environment is factored into everything we do.
Here’s what we are doing to reduce, reuse, and recycle:
The fabric of the aprons we use for marketing our products is made from plastic bottles, 100% post-consumer content.
The Earthborn Holistic® t-shirts we use to market our products are made from 69% pre-consumer, recycled cotton fabric.
Brochures about our products are printed with soy ink on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper containing 100% post-consumer, recycled content.
Our Earthborn Holistic® store shelf talkers are produced by an FSC-certified printer. They are printed with soy ink on FSC certified paper containing 100% post-consumer, recycled content.
Our signs that are made to hang in stores are printed with soy ink on paperboard containing 30% post-consumer, recycled content.
Earthborn Holistic® presentation folders used in meetings with interested retailers are produced by an FSC-certified printer. They are printed with soy ink on FSC-certified paper. The folder’s paper weight has been decreased nearly 70% compared to the previous folder used.
Our products are shipped to retailers in 39% post-consumer, corrugated, recycled cartons made from Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI)-certified fiber.
With each new item we print or purchase, we pledge to look for better, earth-friendly ways to do it. That’s The Earthborn Pledge.
Recycled products contain recovered fiber, including pre- or post-consumer sources, or both.
Products marked as Corrugated Recycles are readily recyclable and have not been coated with any substance that is not repulpable.
Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified by this global organization to assure consumers that the products come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic, and ecological needs of present and future generations.
The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program promotes responsible environmental behavior and sound forest management. Overseen by an independent body, the program is based on 13 objectives that address economic, environmental, and social issues.
Printing with non-toxic soy ink is better for the environment than petroleum-based inks. Soy ink is non-toxic, low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), sustainable, made from a renewable resource (soybeans), more easily stripped from paper during the de-inking and recycling process than petroleum inks, and uses a primarily U.S.-grown crop rather than foreign petroleum.
