NEW YORK, USA / AGILITYPR.NEWS / January 13, 2021 / TULA Skincare Ramps Up Sustainability Focus with New Partnerships and Introduction of Biodegradable Product
Brand Partners with TerraCycle® and Cloverly® on National Recycling Program and Carbon Neutral Shipping
TULA Skincare, the leading clean clinical skincare brand powered by probiotics and superfoods, is increasing its commitment to sustainability with new partnerships alongside TerraCycle® and Cloverly®, in addition to the launch of biodegradable “Balancing Act” Purifying & pH Balancing Toner Pads.
Created to be environmentally friendly, TULA’s new Balancing Act pad applicator is made from biodegradable bamboo fibers that can be replaced with refill pods instead of an entirely new container. Ideal for those who want to introduce a toner in their routine or those seeking a cleaner and more sustainable alternative, Balancing Act is formulated for all skin types. The toner instantly lifts impurities and helps tighten the look of pores while balancing the skin’s natural pH after cleansing, ultimately nourishing and improving skin smoothness.
To further amplify sustainability efforts, TULA is also expanding recycling capabilities with a new national recycling program in partnership with international recycling leader, TerraCycle. Through the TULA Skincare Recycling Program, consumers can send in TULA Skincare jars, tubes and blister packs. Participation is free and easy: simply sign up on the TerraCycle program page, https://www.terracycle.com/en-US/brigades/tula and mail in the used products using a prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the products will be cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. For every shipment of TULA Skincare products sent to TerraCycle, participants will earn TerraCycle points, which can be redeemed as a donation to the non-profit, school or charitable organization of their choice.
TULA glow-getters are also encouraged to help offset their carbon footprint through a new partnership with Cloverly, which helps organizations go carbon neutral or carbon negative through its real-time, sustainability-as-a-service platform. At checkout, customers can opt-in for carbon-neutral shipping for a small additional fee, typically less than $1.00. Here, customers can also view an emissions estimate for their order and details about the offset project that will be used to mitigate the emissions from their shipment. For TULA customers who opt in, Cloverly facilitates the purchase and retirement of carbon credits from verified offset projects, via their proprietary API, making the delivery carbon neutral.
“At TULA, we’re constantly exploring the latest technologies to reduce the impact we have on the environment—it’s an ongoing journey. At this stage, we are thrilled to offer different ways for our community to join us as we all do our part in protecting the planet,” said Savannah Sachs, CEO at TULA Skincare. “While our sustainability journey is always ongoing, we believe our sustainability impact will be most meaningful if we continue to work together, and look forward to growing our promising new partnerships with TerraCycle and Cloverly.”
