We're not perfect, and we're cool with that.

Let's face it, this stuff is tricky, and even with the best intentions, small companies like ours face challenges from manufacturers, supply chains, big industry and technology.

Despite the challenges, we're dedicated to treading lightly on the planet while running a business that's mindful and kind to Mother Nature. Transparency is huge for us, not because it's trendy, but because it's essential. We're not just hopping on the eco bandwagon for a quick ride – It's genuinely part of who we are. Taking care of our environmental responsibilities is seriously important to us, and we're ready to roll up our sleeves and get creative in minimising our ecological footprint wherever we can.

Some areas of focus for our sustainability team include:

1. Continuously improving our supply chain transparency

2. Optimising packaging and transitioning to eco-friendly materials.

3. Minimising our environmental footprint by effectively managing gas emissions and waste.

doin’ our bit for mother nature


We are committed to using high quality ethically sourced and natural ingredients that won't put our beautiful planet in harm's way. Palm oil? Nah, we steer clear of it because of all the social, environmental, and ethical drama it brings. We're big fans of natural ingredients for a bunch of reasons:

1. They keep dangerous chemicals out of our ecosystems, so our fishy friends stay safe and sound and can keep swimming happily.

2. No reef damage here! Chemicals can mess with coral's nutrition and put the many ocean animals that live there at risk.

3. Natural exfoliants in place of Microbeads (plastic beads used in some exfoliators). Microbeads end up in our waterways and eventually in the bodies of fish and other marine life.

We're proud to call ourselves 'Plantarians' – not just because we're against animal cruelty, but also because it's better for the planet. Our ingredients are gentle on your skin, and you'll never find any nasties like synthetic colours, silicones, parabens, microbeads, and more in our products. Not only are these bad for your skin, but they're also bad news for Mother Nature. Who's got time for that? Dive into our clean ingredients and see for yourself!

packing orders

We're all about eco-friendly shipping! Our post satchels are made from plants and crafted using wind and renewable energy, giving them a super low carbon footprint. Even better, they're biodegradable and compostable, so you can chuck them in your home compost and watch them disappear, reducing landfill waste.

We're big on reusing too. Every cardboard box that lands in our warehouse gets a second life, packing up wholesale and large orders. We don't let anything go to waste! And if an order needs a little extra cushioning, we've got bio-fill on hand. Made from Aussie corn and potato starch, it's biodegradable and dissolves harmlessly in water. Plus, it's compostable, so feel free to sprinkle it on your garden – it's like a treat for your soil!

packaging & printing

We're all about digital wizardry, which is why we love connecting with our customers through the magic of cyberspace via social media and email. But sometimes, we like to add a touch of printed fun to the mix. When we do, you can bet it's on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, using soy or vegetable inks to keep things eco-friendly. At BN HQ, we're all about that 100% recycled printing paper life.

Now, let's talk labels. Our face mask labels are made from Bagasse fiber, a renewable, tree-free material derived from sugar cane paper. This stuff is created mainly from sugar cane waste, capturing atmospheric carbon during growth and converting it into biomass. Using Bagasse means a lower carbon footprint, helping to reduce pollution and preserve precious forest ecosystems.

But we're not stopping there. Our face mask tamper seals boast FSC-certified environmentally sustainable label materials. What's FSC, you ask? It's Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody certified goodness, which tracks the label's journey from tree to us, ensuring responsible sourcing every step of the way.

We're always on the lookout for even more sustainable options for our product labels and packaging. Our goal? To make each product as green as can be and kiss those unfriendly-to-nature components goodbye. But hey, bio packaging is still in its infancy, so bear with us as we work hard to source the materials and resources needed to make our eco-dreams a reality. Our vision? To sprinkle bio innovations throughout every facet of the business, one step at a time. Thanks for being patient as we journey towards a greener future!
