Here at Summer Fridays, we believe that everyday is Earth Day. We're so fortunate to be based in Los Angeles, a city that really is at the forefront of all things sustainable and eco-conscious. As a brand, we know that everything we do impacts the environment and in every decision, from ingredients to product packaging, we are committed to making a difference. In honor of Earth Day, we're taking a look at some of the green initiatives that we've built into our brand.
ALL OF OUR INGREDIENTS ARE CRUELTY-FREE, VEGAN, SULFATE/PARABEN-FREE, & MADE IN THE USA
When we started Summer Fridays, we knew that we wanted to lead with clean beauty in mind. Self-care and beauty aren't just about making your skin look gorgeous and glowy (though that certainly doesn't hurt), but it's about knowing that the products you're putting on your skin are actually good for you. We're proud to have all our products have all the things that are good for you, and none of the things that aren't.
OUR ECOMM SHIPPERS ARE MADE OF RECYCLABLE MATERIALS & WITH MINIMAL PACKAGING FILLER
As influencers, hundreds of product shipments have made their way into our homes, and more often than not, we've seen how much wasteful packaging goes into mailers. Whether it's styrofoam packing peanuts or plastic shrink wrap, we've made a commitment to ensure that all of our shipments are made of recyclable materials — no fillers needed.
YOU CAN RECYCLE OUR ALUMINUM TUBES, GLASS BOTTLES, & MASK CAPS
As you already know, all of our products are housed in recyclable containers: Our Jet Lag, R+R, and Overtime Masks and our newest Lip Butter Balm live in aluminum tubes while our CC Me Serum serum and Super Amino Gel Cleanser come in glass bottles. Not only can you recycle your empties on your own, but we have our own recycling program so that you can not only do a little good for the environment, but also stock up on our cult-favorite Jet Lag Mask Mini It's a total win-win.
WE USE SUSTAINABLE DYES + LINSEED OILS FOR OUR BOX PRINTING & OUR BOXES ARE RECYCLABLE MADE WITH FSC-CERTIFIED MATERIALS
Something that you might not know about our packaging is that all of the outer boxes and packaging inserts are recyclable and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, and the inks we use are actually a mix of linseed oil, which is a renewable resource. We also use organic sprays and inks for our glass bottle decoration, keeping the entire component completely recyclable.
As a brand, we know that every single thing we do has an impact on the environment. And though we know that we all have a long way to go, we're committed to doing everything we can to make a difference in the beauty industry — and in the world.
We are always looking for ways to be more sustainable. We’d love to hear from you if you have any suggestions. Comment below!
Happy Earth Day!
