Giving Back

How bareLUXE Gives Back

We donate a significant portion of our sales to environmental causes such as ocean-bound plastic waste cleanup. We have partnered with Verdn so our customers can be involved in the experience and see the impact of their specific purchase. 

verdn environmental impact app

The Verdn app provides a truly transparent way to monitor and watch the impact that occurs when money is donated to highly selected organizations.

Every bareLUXE product is linked to a specific environmental pledge to plant trees or clean up ocean plastic waste. We make this donation on your behalf when you buy our products.

After your purchase, you'll receive a link to your own personal dashboard to follow the pledge through its stages and you'll be able to watch the measurable impact tied to the purchase you made.

The organizations chosen by Verdn all provide clear, transparent, and measurable outcomes. They work with and support local communities and hire local workers at appropriate wages. Two of these organizations are Empower AS and Eden Reforestation Projects

 

bareLUXE and 1% for the Planet

bareLUXE and 1% for the Planet

1% for the Planet is a global organization that exists to ensure our planet and future generations thrive. They inspire businesses and individuals to support environmental nonprofits through membership and everyday actions. They make environmental giving easy and effective through partnership advising, impact storytelling and third-party certification.

1% for the Planet works to prevent greenwashing, certify reputable giving and provide accountability for environmental giving. At the end of each year, bareLUXE Skincare goes through the process of certification to prove that a minimum of 1% of our sales - not profits - has been given to valid environmental organizations. If for some reason we fall short, we fix it!

1% for the Planet forges powerful partnerships between businesses, individuals and environmental nonprofits to ensure the most impact possible.


How Can You Help?

Make your order carbon neutral

We recognize that there is some controversy surrounding the purchasing of carbon credits. However, online businesses require products to be shipped - not just to consumers, but also back and forth to warehouses and manufacturing centers. Until electric vehicles are standard, and zero emissions aircrafts are invented, there needs to be a happy medium. 

During the checkout process, you will be given the opportunity to consider purchasing a carbon credit to support EcoCart in their projects to protect forests and plant trees. 

The projects that the EcoCart community supports are rigorously vetted, certified by internationally recognized standards, and hand-selected by industry experts. Each project is triple-verified to maximize positive impacts on both the planet and the local communities where the projects are held.

We appreciate you considering this option. If you check the box, you will be charged a small amount that's calculated to offset the carbon expended shipping it from us to you. 

 
      

Help Us Advocate  

Help us amplify the pressure for competitive businesses to make the transition to more sustainable packaging options. The technology already exists, yet many companies don't choose to use them.

 

Plastic is cheap. Demand better.
