Winner of the Social Responsibility Award in the Zero Waste category
Much more than a zero waste beauty brand, Wanderlightly is committed to creating change through education and its support for aligned charities and initiatives.
5% of all product and workshop sales is donated to initiatives such as One Tree Planted. The brand collaborates with local councils and charities such as Living Ocean, Seaside Scavenge and Take 3 for the Sea, running local clean-up events and workshops to educate people on waste reduction. Wanderlightly also runs regular workshops within its own community, as well as online and with corporate clients, educating and motivating people to embrace imperfect low waste living.
Efforts are made to be as low waste as possible, making small batches to keep a low inventory and ensure less waste. Labels are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper using non-toxic inks that are also free from plastic covers and laminates. The brand chooses glass or aluminium packaging for their reusable and recyclable properties and paperboard tubes as they are 100% plastic-free with a plant-based lining (meaning they can be home-composted or recycled after use). Wanderlightly also works with its suppliers to ensure they pack without plastic and use recyclable packaging materials that can be reused. Any plastics that cannot be avoided are recycled. Carbon-neutral shipping is used.
