Unpacking the Benefits of Plastic Free Deodorant

In a world where sustainability and eco-friendliness are becoming increasingly important, the choice to switch to plastic free deodorant is a no-brainer for many. Plastic free deodorant not only helps reduce non-biodegradable waste, but is also part of a more conscientious way of living. Companies that are investing in alternative packaging are likely also prioritizing other sustainable practices, as well as high quality ingredients for their products. Let's take a closer look at what plastic free deodorant is and how to integrate it into your daily habits.

Understanding the Impact of Plastic on Our Planet

Our planet is grappling with a plastic crisis that touches every corner of the globe. Plastic packaging presents a formidable challenge as it litters our environment, endangers wildlife, and contributes to a growing landfill crisis. The seemingly harmless act of choosing plastic again and again adds to this escalating issue, compounding the environmental footprint we leave behind. Opting for plastic free deodorant is a small but meaningful step toward mitigating this impact. By embracing alternatives that utilize biodegradable or recyclable packaging, we not only lessen the volume of plastic waste but also champion practices that are in harmony with our planet's well-being.

Why More Companies Don’t Switch to Plastic Free Packaging

For many personal care brands, retail shops and stores heavily influence their packaging choices. Retailers that stock deodorant are used to merchandising plastic tubes. It’s what they believe their consumers want because that’s how deodorant has been sold for decades. If consumers demand more sustainable packaging, that will influence the buying decisions of retailers, which will encourage manufacturers to invest in eco-friendly packaging.

Additionally, the unfamiliar feel and look of plastic-free packaging may initially cause hesitation among those used to traditional products. These hurdles, as well as the lack of alternative packaging options for personal care products, make it more challenging for both consumers and businesses to transition away from plastic. Understanding these aspects helps us to reevaluate our priorities and do what we can to continue moving toward a more sustainable future.

The Importance of High Quality Ingredients

The magic of plastic free deodorant doesn't stop at its environmentally conscious packaging. Plastic free deodorants are typically made with a high level of eco-consciousness, and thus crafted with meticulously selected ingredients. By prioritizing high quality ingredients that come from the earth and choosing a thoughtful approach to doing business, companies like Humble are minimizing environmental impact and maximizing the benefits to your skin and body.

Why Plastic Free Deodorant is a Healthier Choice

Choosing to go plastic free often goes hand-in-hand with the decision to ditch synthetic ingredients. Steering clear of aluminum, parabens, and artificial fragrances is a consideration for those looking for gentle yet effective ingredients that are better for the body and the planet. Embracing plastic free deodorant not only aligns with a commitment to environmental stewardship but is also dedication to nurturing your body in the best ways possible.

Many customers ask us why we don’t transition completely to plastic free. The simple answer is it’s in your hands. As our plastic free deodorants gain popularity, we will be able to introduce more scents in this type of packaging, and maybe, one day move away from our post-consumer recycled plastic packaging.
