Bodecare has a keen interest in contributing to the preservation of the environment, which is why reusable cloth bags have been introduced for all brushes; minimal packaging is attached to save on paper and reducing plastic where-ever possible.
Jodie designs all new products for Bodecare and has set criteria in respect to the environment that must be adhered to before committing to production, they are:
- The use of eco-friendly material. E.g. The new Bodecare Brush bags for the Japanese Body brush and Bean Nail brush with coco bristle, are made of flax material. Flax is a natural fibre, grown in temperate regions with one of the lowest level of herbicide, pesticide and fungicide making flax plant one of the most eco-friendly yarns around the world.
- Packaging should have minimal impact on the environment. Biodegradable and Recylable packaging is key. The plastic bags which the products are packed in are made from a low density, soft flexible plastic, which are recyclable.
- Timber should come from a managed sustainable forest or be recycled. Bodecare’s suppliers use sustainable forest timber, and bristles are from plants like Agave, Coconuts, flax which grow rapidly and require little to no pesticides to produce. The new foot spa pumice brushes are hand made of recycled timber by a fair trade company.
