Other Sustainability Notes

Beyond being carbon neutral, we believe in doing more to help the environment in these times of crisis. So we’re also funding the restoration of forest and marine ecosystems damaged by the production and disposal of single-use paper and plastic. To date, we've planted over 25,000 trees and removed over 2.5 million plastic water bottles from the ocean through our donations to nonprofit partners. We are also working towards a more closed-loop, sustainable future by designing out the waste from our packaging, extending our products lifespan through modularity, and running a take-back program to ensure products are recycled at the end of life. From products that empower our customers to live zero-waste, to the positive impact we make through our partners and closed-loop efforts, we’re using our business to make a difference.
