DOING GOOD

TODAY

We’re tree-obsessed and to-date, we’ve planted and pledged 1,307,847 tree saplings (and counting) around the world. From cleaning the air we breathe, to helping to offset carbon emissions & combat climate change, to ensuring biodiversity to cooling the planet, trees are essential to our well-being - that's why we continue to plant trees around the world.

OUR STORES

  • Origins will recycle beauty empties from any cosmetics brand in their entirety at any of our manned counters. The materials are washed, shredded & made into plastic pellets which are turned into anything from new bottles and containers to street signs and stationary.

  • We prioritize the use of low-emitting, recyclable and/or recycled materials in all our new store fixtures and visual merchandising.


  • We’re using materials that emit no or low VOCs and/or contain post-industrial recycled content for the wall finishings in our new stores.


  • Counters in our new stores are made with FSC certified paper and/or post-consumer recycled paper; they are also Greenguard certified.

 

1 At Origins, “Clean” means that we extensively research and evaluate our ingredients for purity, efficacy and safety. And we continue to take steps to improve how we take care of the earth—from using manufacturing processes that help reduce our impact on the environment, to planting trees worldwide.

Industrial waste includes the solid component of the waste stream arising from commercial and industrial activities (not collected as Municipal Solid Waste), but does not contain Listed Waste, Hazardous Waste or Radioactive Waste.
