Organic beauty, sustainability and units of wellbeing
LA-EVA is the first certified organic brand in the UK market to be launching a refill service in 2019 and we hope that others will follow in our footsteps.
The environmental impact of beauty is huge. 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry (Zero Waste, 2019), establishing it as one of the worst perpetrators of marine plastic pollution. The LCA Centre has suggested that refilling a bottle instead of using a completely new product saves a minimum of 70% on CO2, 65% on energy and 45% on water.
THE REFILL PROCESS
We suggest that you wash your empty bottle in the dishwasher to clean it out thoroughly from any residue. Our labels are very robust and usually come out looking as good as new. On rare occasions when there is an existing blemish, labels can deteriorate in the wash; if this happens we will replace your label with a new one. In line with guidelines set by the Soil Association and COSMOS, customers have to be present during refilling, which means that we are not able to provide this as postal service.
Refilling your LA-EVA bottle at our refill partner stores means benefitting from 20% off the price of a full product.
