At Carbonfund.org, we love it when our business partners take our motto seriously and put it into action.  We’ve been touting “reduce what you can, offset what you can’t™” for almost a dozen years, and many of our business partners have joined us in these efforts.  It's easy to talk the talk, but they walk the walk as well. 

Five-year Carbonfree® Business Partner Original Moxie is a great example.   They create every product they offer and have a very personal stake in whether each ingredient is safe to use – for customers and for the planet.  Whenever possible, Original Moxie uses organic, unrefined ingredients, so as to maximize their uniquely beneficial properties and minimize the company’s carbon footprint.    

Original Moxie also understands that waste tends to pile up when you make something from scratch.   Whenever possible, they purchase tools and supplies that can be re-used without sacrificing hygiene and quality.  From glass droppers for essential oils to cotton towels for cleaning up, Original Moxie strives to minimize the amount of disposable items used to create products.  All paper, plastic and glass that cannot be re-used is responsibly recycled, and all product containers are easily-recyclable plastics.  All retail customers receive their orders in USPS Priority Mail boxes, which have been awarded Cradle to Cradle Certification℠ for their ecologically-intelligent design. 

For everything that can't yet be reduced, recycled, or re-used, Original Moxie offsets its remaining carbon footprint by partnering with Carbonfund.org in supporting carbon emissions reduction projects. To date, Original Moxie has neutralized 395,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, the same quantity as avoiding over 2 million pounds of waste decomposition in landfills. 

Whether your hair is curly or straight, Original Moxie’s natural hair care products will help you look your best, and you can feel good about a company that’s leading the beauty care industry in true environmental responsibility.

Environmentally-responsible companies in the cosmetics industry face a challenge to ensure that their products contain healthy, safe and sustainably sourced ingredients.  Southern California-based EnvyDerm Cosmetics takes this responsibility seriously, and recently took the additional step to become a Carbonfree® Business Partner, neutralizing its estimated annual operational emissions by supporting forestry projects through Carbonfund.org.    

EnvyDerm Cosmetics is a high performance cosmetics company that manufactures healthy good-for-you eye and lip products using natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly packages.  EnvyDerm continues to grow with a passion to offer a complete eyelash and lip enhancement product line that is safe, scientifically proven and fits a wide array of customers' needs.

"We strive to create cosmetics products that are healthy and good for you with less impact on the environment,” stresses Nadia Smith, Founder and CEO.  “Partnering with Carbonfund.org is a natural step in our advocacy efforts and a step further in our effort to not just beautify our customers but further contribute to beautify Earth." 

Part of EnvyDerm’s mission is to keep the planet beautiful and clean for the future.  The company works hard to implement sustainable and eco-friendly measures to reduce its environment impact.  That’s why they manufacture locally in California,  source eco-friendly packaging that is made from 100% recycled material, and source organic ingredients for products as much as possible.  These commitments along with their Carbonfree® operations set EnvyDerm above conventional cosmetics companies as a more environmentally responsible choice for its customers.
