“How eco-friendly are you?”
Thanks for asking! This is an issue we care deeply about, and are more than happy to discuss and navigate with others.
Here at LOHY Australia, we are proud to be certified toxic-free, cruelty-free and vegan by Safe Cosmetics Australia.
This is because we choose to make our products with no nasties, as it’s better for both us and the planet!
We’ve compiled a list of some things we do in our spaces to minimise our footprint, to be as open and honest as possible with our customers.
♻️ We use what we have! For our wholesale orders, we reuse boxes and parcel cushioning from previous orders to pack and send.
♻️ We pack most of our parcels without plastic, and use all recyclable or recycled materials.
♻️ Our paper tape is completely biodegradable, solvent and chemical free, non-toxic, odourless and water-activated.
♻️ We're only printing from computers what is necessary.
♻️ Using Earth-conscious brands of hygiene and cleaning products in our kitchen and bathroom.
♻️ Turning off our lights, air and computers when we leave each day.
♻️ Recycling any soft plastic material that comes packaged around our products with local community groups such as Flagstaff and Girl Guides.
Oh and another thing...
We use safety pins and cardboard swing tags on our Glove and Cozy products because the cardboard can be recycled and the pins can be reused.
We're in the process of developing refill pouches so our customers won’t need to purchase and fill their bathrooms with more plastic bottles.
Our passion is to stay on this beautiful island we call home. Our mission is to continue to support as much manufacturing as possible here on Australian soil as possible. That way, we can eliminate the gases and petrol used in sea and air freight.
At LOHY, we understand the pressing need to reduce single-use plastic waste, which often ends up in landfills or pollutes our oceans.
Our refillable pouches are created with eco-friendly materials designed to be durable and long-lasting, ensuring a reliable and safe way to store your favourite shampoo, conditioner, and styling products. By switching to these pouches, you'll be taking a conscious step towards reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a healthier planet for future generations.
Offering a range of benefits, not only do the refillable pouches save on waste, the large 800ml capacity means fewer refills and less frequent replacements, providing you with a more convenient and efficient hair care routine. The pouches are also fully recyclable and designed with a user-friendly spout, making pouring and dispensing your products super easy without any mess or spills. Once you've finished with a pouch, snip the plastic spout off and place the rest in the recycling.
Safety is paramount to us, and we wish for our customers to avoid ending up with unnecessary 'slices and dices' from poorly manufactured products. Our refillable pouches undergo rigorous testing to ensure they are suitable for various hair care formulations. From gentle shampoos to nourishing conditioners and styling products, our products are engineered to maintain the integrity and efficacy of the products they hold, providing you with the same high-quality results you've come to expect from LOHY.
Sustainability shouldn't come at a premium cost. We've worked hard to make our refillable pouches environmentally friendly and budget-friendly. While the initial purchase might seem slightly higher than traditional single-use containers, the long-term benefits are undeniable. Is this correct?
By using our refillable pouches, you're making an investment that will save you money in the long run. Say goodbye to purchasing individual plastic bottles repeatedly and HELLO to a cost-effective solution that allows you to buy larger quantities of your favourite hair care products at a more economical price. "Embracing refillable pouches is not only a smart choice for the planet but also a wise decision for your wallet!"
LOHY's refillable pouches prove that eco-conscious choices can be accessible and affordable. Together, let's embrace a more responsible and sustainable hair care routine. Experience the perfect blend of eco-friendliness, convenience, and efficacy, and let your hair shine while being kind to the planet.
By choosing LOHY's refillable pouches, you become a part of a global movement towards sustainability, conservation, and a cleaner world. Every small action matters, and together, we can, in time, significantly impact the environment for the better. Join us in our mission to preserve the beauty of our planet while enjoying luscious, healthy hair – it's a win-win for you and the environment.
The Stats Of The Matter
Did you know that in 2020, the average person in NSW generated 8.8 kg of waste a week? We’d hate to contribute to that statistic.
85% of soft plastics from bags and packaging ends up in landfill. To avoid this, we recycle our soft plastics with local community groups such as Flagstaff and Girl Guides.
Plastic may be convenient for now, but WWF.org estimates that 130,000 tonnes of it finds its way into our oceans each year - and it doesn't break down. Microplastics stick around forever. And that ain't cute.
Nasties such as parabens and sulphates harm aquatic life and our environment when we wash them down the drain, so why do we put them near our skin? (Hint: We don't! There's none in LOHY)
