Sustainability & Contribution
To encompass the entire life cycle of a product, we begin with product design, and envision the use and management of materials in ways that preserve, value and minimize environmental impacts, whilst conserving natural resources.
Our product boxes are made from cotton paper. Cotton paper, also known as rag paper is made using cotton from used cloth as the primary material.
Place in your household green waste bin. Must first be torn into parts.
Our products are filled in glass bottles. In Australia only 9% of plastic household waste is currently recycled whereas glass is currently at 56%.
Labels & Pumps
In Australia plastic pumps and labels cannot be placed in your household recycle bin. To recycle, we use TerraCycle to ensure these product parts are in fact recycled post use. At the end of the products life, please remove labels and pump parts and mail to us. Please include your name, email address and order number and upon receiving we will email you a $10 discount code to use on a future order. Please email us first prior to shipping. email@example.com
Gracious Minds are not responsible for untracked or missing product part returns.
Forest Stewardship Council Certified
Our skincare lids are made using FSC Certified wood from sustainable and renewable resources. Our manufacturer is a small family owned business who produces sustainable furniture. Please note we are phasing out our wood caps containing a plastic lining. Most of our product caps now have no plastic lining.
Australian Conservation Foundation
We contribute a fixed amount to The ACF. The ACF is Australia's national environment organisation who speak out for the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places and wildlife we love.
SisterWorks is a not-for-profit social enterprise in Melbourne Australia. Through work and entrepreneurship, their mission is to support women who are refugees & asylum seekers to improve their sense of belonging and economic outlook. Every Womankind perfume sold we contribute $5 to Sisterworks.
