More Sustainable Materials
Dr. Bronner’s Toothpaste is packaged in tubes made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, 33% of which is bio-based plastic made from sugarcane—a more sustainable alternative to virgin petroleum-based plastics. The entire package, including tube, cap and box, is designed to be entirely recyclable.* The tubes have been third party tested to meet the Association of Plastic Recyclers’ (APR) critical guidance requirements for recyclability. The boxes used to package Dr. Bronner’s Toothpaste are made from 100% recycled paper, with a minimum of 35% post-consumer recycled (PCR**) fiber. The remaining 65% of the fiber used in these boxes is post-industrial recycled (PIR***) material.
*Ability to recycle packaging depends on the varied recycling capabilities of different municipal localities and facilities.
**Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) means the material has already been through a consumer use cycle and processed by a municipal recycling facility, such as when paper or cardboard is put into a home recycling bin at home and then put out to the curb for recycling pick-up.
***Post-Industrial Recycled (PIR) is considered “recycled” in industry terms, and means that the material has not necessarily already been used by a consumer. An example of post-industrial waste would be if a paper mill that produces both virgin paper and recycled paper has scrap fibers from their manufacturing process that they then capture and rework into recycled paper, rather than dispose as industrial waste.
Since 2008 Dr. Bronner’s has been certified Fair Trade for all major raw materials (representing over 95% of annual agricultural volume) by the respected Swiss Certifier IMO. Shifting supply chains to use certified Fair Trade ingredients makes a big difference in the lives of several thousand farmers and workers —and is money well spent. Along with their families and communities, farmers and workers benefit from fair prices, living wages and funding for local development projects.
Certified Under the USDA National Organic Program
Organic Integrity in body care means that the main ingredients as well as secondary ingredients in an organic labeled or branded product are certified organic, produced in compliance with the National Organic Program. Dr. Bronner’s products are certified to the USDA National Organic Program, which consumers trust to ensure the organic integrity of organically labeled products.
No Animal Testing and Vegan
Dr. Bronner’s qualifies for the rabbit and stars logo of the Coalition for Consumer information on Cosmetics (CCIC). This logo certifies that the product and its ingredients are not tested on animals. The CCIC, a coalition of animal rights organizations, requires independent audit for confirmation. Dr. Bronner’s Castile Liquid and Bar Soaps do not contain animal products. Dr. Bronner’s has also obtained vegan certification from Vegan Action for all offerings that contain no animal-derived ingredients (this excludes lip and body balms), and the company is registered with the Vegan Society in the U.K. Vegetarian and animal welfare advocacy are a core focus of Dr. Bronner’s activism efforts.
