At HelloBody, we are committed to making a positive impact upon the world, and care greatly about preserving the environment and all its inhabitants.
OUR CHARITABLE PROJECTS
We created our HelloBody Cares charity program in 2018 as a way to give back to causes that are important to us. Making a positive impact on issues like women’s rights, caring for underprivileged children, animals and of course, the environment means the world to us.
20 NGOs financially and materially supported!
With an overall total of £120,085 donated since 2018
For our very first environmental charity project, we chose to contribute to 1% for the Planet on Black Friday in 2019.
The choice was an obvious one for us, not only because of our commitment to using natural ingredients in our products, but also because we know that only 3% of philanthropic donations go towards the protection of the environment.
In total, we raised just under €60,000. However, we rounded this figure up to €60,000 (51,000 pounds) and donated this amount accordingly to “1% for the Planet”, during the Black Friday Week sales. The final total is divided among various certified associations. In 2019 alone, “1% for the Planet”, raised a total of more than 24 million euros will be donated to over 1,500 non-profit organisations worldwide: climate and energy (33%), agriculture and food (13%), conservation of nature reserves (29%), protection of water (16%), conservation of Flora and fauna (5%), fight against increasing pollution (4%).
We want only the best for your skin and for the environment. That’s why we refuse to use parabens, sulfates, microplastics or aluminum in any of our products. We also do not use irritating ingredients such as denatured alcohol or mineral oils and waxes.
On average, 98% of the ingredients in our formulas are of natural origin. We only add extra ingredients when absolutely necessary to preserve the integrity of the formula or ensure the best sensory experience. Of course, with each new product developed, our goal is always to get as close as possible to a formula derived 100% from natural ingredients.
OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
All of our packaging is 100% recyclable! We’re also proud to say that as of the end of 2019, 23% of our packaging is made of glass. From January 1st, 2020, we will also start using even more sustainable options when it comes to packaging. Being naturally biodegradable and much easier to recycle than plastic, we will opt for glass whenever possible and all of our product containers will consist of at least 55% recycled materials – striving to reach 100% in the near future.
In 2019 we also reduced waste related to paper packaging by 40%. Our paper packaging is made from 100% recycled paper, contains no chemicals and is printed with water-soluble inks, making it biodegradable. For any flyers or brochures we produce, we use paper without mattifying coating to reduce our consumption of water and energy. This paper can be recycled up to seven times!
