Our Sustainability Plans For 2022

Our Sustainability Plans For 2022

At BONDI WASH we’re passionate about caring for nature and our environment. We do our best to create products that are natural and sustainable and are always looking for ways to reduce our footprint.  This year we have reflected on our sustainability efforts and created a list of commitments we’re making in 2022 to better care for our beautiful planet. 

  1. New natural and sustainable products: All our products are 99-100% naturally derived - we set a high standard even compared to other 'natural' brands.  We source ethical and high-quality ingredients and avoid those that we know can cause environmental damage, such as rosewood or palm oil.  All the oils in our blends are sustainably sourced meaning we are not devastating forests to source the scents in our range.  In 2022 we will be continuing our efforts to create natural, ethical products and are expanding into new categories so that you can continue to choose natural.

  2. Post-consumer recycled plastic: In 2022, we are looking into more sustainable ways to package our products, such as rolling out post-consumer recycled plastic for all bottles.  This means that no new plastic will be used for our products and that bottles can be recycled into new packaging, reducing the amount of plastic in circulation. 

  3. Non-plastic dispensers: We know our customers would prefer to purchase less plastic to begin with so we are looking into non-plastic dispensers so that you can refill your favourite BONDI WASH products and continue to display them beautifully.

  4. More bulk packaging: In 2022, we are introducing more 5L bulk options to promote alternatives to single use bottles, offering savings in both plastic and transport waste (less travel and shipping from customers needing to restock products).  We currently have these options available in our Hand Wash, Body Wash, Dish Wash, Floor Wash and Dog Wash, with more coming your way - feel free to let us know your favourites!  (We don't like plastic pouches as they cannot be recycled and always end up as landfill).

  5. Recyclable caps: While all BONDI WASH bottles can be recycled, it can be difficult to recycle some of the pumps and trigger sprays due to the range of materials used.  This year we are looking into sourcing dispensers that don’t contain any metal so that all can be fully recycled.  We are also looking into new post-consumer plastic caps that mean no new plastic is created in their manufacture.

  6. Environmental information sharing: We will continue to share information and content to help our customers live more sustainable, natural lifestyles.  This year, we have made a commitment to continue sharing information on ingredients and making healthier choices for us and the planet with our community via Instagram, Facebook, our newsletter and journal articles.

  7. Support for WWF: Every year we donate to WWF – we are one of their partners in conservation.  We will continue to do this to support the wonderful work they do in protecting our environment and lobbying to introduce policies that will impact climate change.
