Everything we do at Helen Milan has sustainability in mind. We curate ethically made products from makers with sustainable business and production practices, who pay fair wages and source their raw materials ethically.
We strive to be as zero waste as possible, from the products we curate to the packing materials we use to send them to you.
We choose to work with companies that are environmentally consciousness. Some products that we sell are required by the FDA to be packaged in certain materials. This includes personal items like toothbrushes. You’ll be happy to know that all the companies we work with are striving to become as zero waste as possible. As more sustainable technologies are developed, they are picked up by the companies we choose to work with. For instance, Brush with Bamboo toothbrushes are now packaged in a plant based plastic that complies with the FDA requirement while also being earth friendly.
Our small makers send their goods to us in recycled packaging and used boxes, however sometimes even sustainable products arrive to us in plastic packaging. If a product arrives to us in plastic, instead of removing it and re-packaging it in biodegradable paper, we will leave it in the original plastic and hope that you will recycle it on your end.
We will continue to work with our partners to reduce waste in every way that we can.
