Every luscious lotion, cream and salve that we make is packaged in glass. It is true that glass is heavy and breakable, but glass is also beautiful, recyclable and inert. We source part of our glass from a family operation in Germany that has been making glass since 1622; the rest is made in the USA. Our one exception to glass packaging is  a salvage lot of plastic packaging we bought for our baby bubble bath. It was destined to be thrown out, and we decided to offered the adorable packaging a home. Our boxes are printed on FSC-certified paper from a mill up the road allowing us to support small family timber operations in the Pacific Northwest and encourage more sustainable logging methods. Our labels are made from ground stone and require no water in their manufacturing and no plastic coating to protect them from oil. We are transitioning all of our caps to 100% recyclable metal. We offer recycling for our plastic pumps and misters for those customers who would like to return them to us. We ship to you in cardboard boxes and use paper packing materials; we never use plastic or styrofoam peanuts.
