Our Sustainability Practices
How do we minimise our environmental footprint?
Reducing energy usage and the accompanying carbon emissions during the production of our products are important for us. We work with state-of-the-art systems which are energy-saving and low in emissions. For example, we use a cold process to produce our body lotions, saving 40% energy. We harvest industrial waste heat, which we need for our products and use it for heating our offices. By converting to natural gas, we have been able to drastically reduce our carbon footprint.
The consumption of materials and volume of our waste during production is limited from the start, by using resource-saving techniques. We’re also passionate about the environmental impact of our products, so any of our products that end up in wastewater after use are optimised regarding their biodegradability.
Our product packaging consists mainly of PET, a material that is 100% recyclable. All of our postage materials are also completely recyclable. We encourage our customers to recycle empty packaging with a little reminder in their order!
We select packaging made with recycled material where possible. Our 30ml lotion bottles are made 100% post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR), and our 300ml dispensers are made with 25% PCR – both which can be fully recycled again after use.
Our products are refillable! Therefore, why not refill your travel size Spirit of Travel bottles (for on the go), with our eco-friendly 500ml pump dispensers.
All our formulas are vegan friendly and never tested on animals.
When it comes to our hotel and business partners, we work with and support Clean Conscience - a charity that assists UK hotels, restaurants, and offices to deal with challenging waste streams. Instead of unused Spirit of Travel products going into landfills, through Clean Conscience they can be properly recycled, redistributed, and reused.
