SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING

Hawaiian deodorant
Our land or ʻĀina is a most precious gift and we should do our best to mālama (take care) of it.  We are a solar-powered facility in Kailua, Oahu in which we built a workshop on the outside of our home patio to save on transportation and and fuel.  We take waste and filler seriously and always do our best to reuse what can be used. 
We house our deodorant sticks in 100% compostable cardboard that will biodegrade in the compost garden.  For our body powders we use tree free labels, but are looking for more mindful solutions when it comes to using plastic. 
Even down to our business cards we print using recycled paper and use the mini sizes!  Let's just say that we love our land and want to keep it as clean as possible for future generations.  
For some extra information here are some facts about different types of packaging and their effects on the land and sea.
