Geti Goes Waste-Free

Sustainability is important to us.

We know the beauty industry has a massive impact on the environment, and we want to do things a little differently…

  • Say goodbye to plastic packaging in favor of recyclable & returnable Glass and Metal, which can be repurposed & recycled when customers are done with a product.
  • We’ve launched a return-it program that allows customers from around the globe to send back gently-used reusable packaging to Geti for $$ off future purchases.
  • We craft all our products right here in beautiful Canada, so we can provide good jobs to those within our community.
  • We also support our local economy by sourcing all raw materials, labels and packaging from small businesses within Canada, we can help ensure continued growth and strength of businesses right here at home.

What Does Sustainability Mean To Us?

Sustainability isn’t just about environment.

Here at Geti, we believe that products should be body, planet & wallet-friendly so there are zero hurdles.

We make no concessions when it comes to what goes IN our products. We always choose the cleanest options for your skin, and feel the same diligence should be followed when it comes to the planet and our pricing.

That’s why we strive to craft products that work like the brands you’re used to in packaging that’s planet-friendly & at a price you can feel good about.

Why is Geti so affordable?

We’ve seen something disturbing on shelves and e-stores alike — Green Beauty is trendy, but it’ll cost you.

Single products for $100+? “Natural” products made mostly of water?

No thank you.

Clean Beauty is for everyone, and access to non-toxic products shouldn’t be a privilege or luxury of the well-off.

We want to see Geti on everybody, regardless of age, ethnicity or gender, or socio-economic status.

Wouldn’t you like to introduce your kids to clean, non-toxic personal care and makeup when they’re ready? Help us make it a reality.

Geti’s Sustainability Goals

Waste-Free in 2020

You may have noticed some changes to your favourite Geti products…

Plastics have been replaced with recyclable metal and blue glass, and changes are coming to our packing and shipping materials as well.

Why?

Environmental Impacts Of The Beauty Industry

You’re more conscious than ever about what’s in your makeup, but what about what your makeup comes in?

Unfortunately, sustainability in the beauty industry isn’t really a thing.

According to this article from Independent U.K. – the industry generated over 142 billion units of plastic last year alone. You can bet that most of those were not recycled, and ended up in a landfill, or worse, in the ocean.

After all, most companies don’t use recyclable packaging and it can be tough to figure out just how to recycle certain plastics if your local depot or curb-side pick-up won’t take them.

Our Sustainability Initiatives & Goals for the Future

Waste-Free Product Ingredients – we firmly believe in using every part of our materials. Since many raw ingredients come in, well “raw” form, we’re able to process materials and use various parts in different products. Nothing goes to waste.

Changes to our Packaging – you’ve seen some changes to our Good Fats Body and Lip Butters, and have been loving the cool blue glass that houses our Anti-Fungal Beard Oil. Check back soon to see 100% recyclable packaging across all products within the coming months.

Shipping and Packing Materials – we already use shipping material that’s mostly recycled/recyclable, but we’re not satisfied there. We’re on the hunt for shipping materials that are 100% biodegradable, maybe you’ll be able to plant it in your garden for a floral surprise (wink, wink).

Growing Our Own Ingredients – our BFHG (Big Fat Hairy Goal) is to grow and produce the majority of our plant extracts and oils in our own facility one day. Aside from helping us ensure constant quality and rigorous testing, we also love the idea of a Geti HQ Garden.

100% Canadian-Sourced Ingredients + Materials – we can’t grow everything, especially package and label materials. That’s why we’re so proud to say that Geti sources all product, packing, and shipping materials from Canadian businesses because we believe that supporting local isn’t just good for the economy, but also the environment.

Waste-free in 2020 – Our Promise + Return-It Program

We’ve got a big love on for this beautiful, bountiful planet we call home and we want to be sure she exists for all the future generations to cultivate and nourish. That’s why we’re on a mission to go 100% waste-free in 2020.

From ethical and sustainable sourcing of ingredients & packaging, shifts to recyclable materials for all stages of handling, and future plans to grow our business and a literal garden of creativity, we’re not leaving anything to chance.

COMING SOONPackaging Return Program – The best part about our metal and glass packaging? It’s 100% re-usable. Nature loves to recycle, and we’re into it. Have empty tins or glass from your Good Fats Lip & Body Butters or Anti-Fungal Beard Oil? Ship them back to us and get money back toward your next purchase! Stay tuned for more info on this program, including free postage provided in partnership with Canada Post.

Let’s ensure there’s nature for future generations to make memories in.

Our Sustainability Challenge

We’re on a mission to change things, and we can’t do it alone. We want to call other companies in the beauty industry and beyond to take responsibility for our impact on the environment and make an impact together with steps toward sustainability and a waste-free economy.

Let’s change the world together.
