Our Ethics

 

Circular Living

Circular Living is a way of being in relationship with the earth. Inspired by the circular regenerative cycles and interconnectedness of nature, Circular Living is about doing the best we can to live in a way that supports both the health of people and the planet. As the world is full of many ideas and beliefs and people don't have equal access to resources, showing up to protect what we love manifests itself differently for each of us. There isn't one right way to care about humanity and nature. Connection leads to empathy and empathy leads to inspired action which creates change. 

Nature Forward  

Everything The Circular Living Co. does is for nature! What’s good for the planet is good for us. We choose to use pure and potent certified organic/non-GMO and fair trade ingredients. We support unrefined, cold-pressed plant butters/oils and steam distilled/cold pressed essential oils. We mindfully select ingredients based on their renewability, their skin benefiting qualities and overall environmental impact. For example, we wouldn't use vulnerable or endangered plant species like sandalwood. 

Vegan & Cruelty-Free

Our products are vegan, non-GMO, naturally Gluten-Free, and always cruelty-free! We love animals, so we don’t work with vendors who produce ingredients that compromise animal welfare and endemic species habitat. Palm oil is a great example of this, we won’t use it in any of our products. 

Plastic-Free Packaging & Shipping 

From 100% backyard compostable labels to our glass jars with metal lids that do not contain plastisol, foam or aluminum liners, our product packaging is 100% plastic-free and recyclable. We extend this to our shipping practices, so you’ll never receive any plastic waste from us. We believe it is our responsibility as makers to design, package and ship our products plastic-free. As we grow, we will continue to evaluate ways in which we can reduce waste and logistically initiate and support a refill system that works for us, you and the planet. 

Made By Hand 

We are a small woman-owned biz, and we make everything by hand in small batches. When you buy from a small business, you help local communities thrive, create community relationships, create jobs, receive personalized customer service, support ethical business practices and the environment. Plus it brings joy and happiness to the makers! Pretty sweet deal. We make everything while gettin' down to that sweet soul sound! Good music makes everything better. 

Give Back 

We believe in giving back and supporting non-profit organizations that are driving positive social and environmental change in the world. We donate at minimum 1% of our quarterly profits to non-profits that are in alignment with our values. Check it out
