With such a push toward sustainability in our day to day lives, what sustainable practices does Cedar and Stone have in place? And what motivated you to move towards plant based skincare?
A: We have partnered with The Eden Projects, so for every product you buy instore and online, we plant a tree. So far we’ve planted 13,818 trees, go us! We think that’s pretty bloody epic, also makes me feel way less guilty when I buy something when I should be saving ha. Alongside that, when we are packing our orders everything the products are packed in is either recyclable or biodegradable and we have bulk filling stations to refill your products at our Burleigh store. There are still things that we are working hard to improve as we are not perfect, but we come pretty damn close. Choosing to do plant based skincare was extremely important for both Kate and I. We were sick of buying products that stipulated they were natural when really half the ingredients were made in a lab, with petrol, yeah – I know, crazy but true. We were given all of these beautiful ingredients by mother nature, why wouldn’t we use them.
