We have a deep connection to the ocean and you protect the things you love.
We believe that business can be a force for good in this world, helping to shift our attitudes and actions toward restoring and sustaining the health of the environment.
For any business, the path to sustainability is challenging. For Bend Beauty it’s a path we choose to lead on.
While environmental issues are complex, our environmental approach is simple:
- Reduce our environmental footprint
- Fund environmental non-profits
To reduce our environmental footprint, we only use renewable energy. We are a Bullfrog Power customer, so all our energy comes from certified green renewable sources, such as solar, wind, and low-impact hydro-electricity.
We also insist on a responsible supply chain. The ingredients in our products are derived from sustainable sources, including important certifications such as Marine Stewardship Council, Friends of the Sea, and organic whenever possible. We have also catalogued materials we consume, and developed a purchasing policy that favors the most environmentally responsible options. It covers office supplies, cleaning products, food, electronics, and everything else we buy.
To fund environmental non-profits, we are a proud member of 1% for the Planet. This global network of companies donates 1% of sales to environmental non-profits. Since joining, we have contributed more than $800,000 to environmental organizations, including David Suzuki Foundation, Environmental Defence, Nova Scotia Nature Trust, and Ecology Action Centre.
