From Farm and Forest
It's been almost a year in the making, and the time has finally come...
We are so excited to announce the launch of our brand new eco-packaging for four of our farm-grown products! Created in Finland from renewable natural binders and FSC-certified wood chips, these sleek and sophisticated containers are 100% biodegradable and microplastic-free. When empty, they can be discarded in the compost and will begin to break down almost immediately, returning completely back to the earth. Zero waste. And the very best part?
We are the first company in North America to use them!
Unlike materials that release microplastics which remain on our planet and in our oceans for hundreds of years, our new containers designed by Finnish start-up company Sulapac biodegrade quickly and can be digested by naturally-occurring micro-organisms. They are a beautiful and sustainable solution to plastic which founders Suvi Haimi and Laura Kyllönen sought to develop in an effort to reduce plastic waste.
As passionate stewards of our Okanagan farmland, we can't think of a more perfect container to showcase some of our favourite small batch products, including our Botanical Body Butter and our Lavender Hand & Body Salve.
But that's not all! Along with the launch of our containers, we're also releasing two new products to go inside of them: an incredibly gentle Calendula Body Butter and an invigorating Rescue Hand & Body Salve.
We've always been dedicated to crafting our products with the highest quality farm-grown, local and sustainably-sourced ingredients, and we love having containers to echo this commitment to our skin and to our planet!
From our Okanagan family farm and the forests in Finland, we are thrilled to offer you some of our favourite products in packaging that is 100% sustainable, 100% biodegradable, and 100% better for the body, earth and soul!
