Sustainable Practices

Here at Original Moxie, we are intimately familiar with the waste that tends to pile up when you make something from scratch.  Because we believe that less is more when it comes to trash, we are doing everything within our power to minimize what we throw away. Whenever possible, we purchase tools and supplies that can be re-used without sacrificing hygiene and quality.  From glass droppers for our essential oils to cotton towels for cleaning up, we strive to minimize the amount of disposable items used to create our products.  All paper, plastic and glass that cannot be re-used is responsibly recycled.

Our containers are, by design, easy to recycle and re-use.  All containers are made of #1/PET or #2/HDPE plastic.  Once you have finished using your products, simply clean them out, remove and discard the labels & lids and deposit the containers in your curbside recycling. Check with your local recycling agency to make sure that these types of containers are accepted!

We realize that our impact on the environment doesn’t stop at our doors.  We recycle or re-use the boxes and packing material that are shipped to us and utilize boxes with a high recycled content to ship our products to you. Our retail customers receive their orders in USPS Priority Mail boxes, which have been awarded Cradle to Cradle Certification℠ for their ecologically-intelligent design. We also offer CarbonFree® Shipping on all orders by partnering with Carbonfund.org to offset our shipping emissions!

For everything that can’t yet be reduced, recycled, or re-used, we offset our carbon footprint by partnering with Carbonfund.org. Carbonfund is working towards a “ZeroCarbon™ world” through innovative and expertly managed programs in climate change education, carbon offsets and reductions, and public outreach.
