We take a holistic approach when selecting our ingredients, packaging, materials and fabrics, taking multiple aspects into account to make actual sustainable choices. Reducing the environmental impact of our business is key to us and is constantly on our minds. To do so, we measure, monitor and initiate improved practices throughout the company, from packaging & ingredients to operations, and supply chain.

OUR PACKAGING

With every product we develop, we work to create packaging that is optimally fit for purpose in terms of functionality, the use of the resources, waste reduction and the environmental impact. We’re committed to realising our goal of zero-waste packaging by 2025; meaning all our products will be either refillable, recyclable and/or made from recycled material. Next to that, we follow the principles of the 3 Rs: Refill, Reduce, Recycle.

Refill

Continue to have those beautiful, luxury jars in the bathroom, while being conscious of the planet too.

Reduce

Reducing the amount of material needed where possible. Our refill concepts help us to save even more.

Recycle

Constantly working on our packaging to improve recyclability and increase the amount of recycled materials used.

LIFE-CYCLE ASSESSMENTS

All of our packaging is assessed by The LCA Centre, according to the forensic life-cycle assessment (LCA) method. This helps us to understand the environmental impact of our current and future packaging solutions and possible alternatives, and to make rational decisions on all materials that we use.

RECYCLED PLASTICS

In 2020, we introduced recycled PET plastic for our body creams, body scrubs, bath foams, shower oils and fragrance sprays. Our aim is to further increase the share of recycled materials in our product packaging.

FEWER MATERIALS

Our iconic shower foam has a lightweight can that reduces the use of aluminium by 10%. Over the years, we have made our gift set packaging smaller and stopped using carton boxes for multiple products. These are perfect examples of how we work on both visible and invisible packaging reductions. And we won't stop here, we will keep on reducing the amount of materials we use.



GREEN OPERATIONS & RESPONSIBLE SUPPLY CHAINS

At Rituals, we mainly work with specialised European partners for the manufacturing and distribution of our products. This means that besides paying attention to the sustainability efforts for our own stores & offices, we engage with our suppliers and distribution partners to reduce the impact of the production & distribution of our products.
