We are incredibly proud to be an eco-friendly, sustainable and plastic-minimal company.
Here's what we do within White Rabbit Skincare to help our planet:
Ours are made from potato starch, and can either be dissolved under running water, or simply popped in your general waste bin, food bin or compost and they will dissolve in a matter of days.
For the rest of our postage packaging, we use cardboard boxes (printed with vegan ink), tissue paper and sealed with paper tape.
Our packaging is a mixture of aluminium, bamboo (one of the fastest growing and most sustainable natural materials on the planet) and glass. Plastic atomiser and pump lids are available, but you can substitute these for aluminium screw caps if you'd rather.
Micro plastic free certified
We have been certified as 'Zero Plastic Inside' by Beat the Microbead
QR Code return, reuse, recycle scheme
We are incredibly excited to have partnered with fellow Scottish company Reath to roll out in May 2021 a brand new packaging reuse/recycle initiative which involves the use of QR codes.
Through this scheme we will be able to scan and trace the entire lifecycle of a piece of packaging, which will not only provide real quantitative data, but will enable us to clean and reuse much of the packaging too, which in turn will of course help the planet by reducing our carbon footprint and any packaging going to recycling.
Regardless of whether your packaging has a QR code or not (it might take us a wee while to get all packaging covered!) you can return your empty jars and bottles to us and we will refund you the cost of standard packaging AND give you 50p per full sized item in return*
(*if you have ordered through our website we will refund you directly, but if it's through one of our stockists we will give you a discount code to the equivalent value)
Palm oil free
We are proudly palm oil free, as certified by the Orangutan Alliance. We are also certified by:

Ingredients and suppliers
We buy from only UK-based suppliers, and try to buy organic ingredients where possible.
Offset carbon footprint
Our website is hosted by Shopify, and we are proudly working with them to off set our carbon footprint and support forest protection initiatives. We started the scheme in early May 2021, and plan to send out an update in our newsletter every month updating you with our emissions and how we've contributed to the carbon offset strategy.
