Plastic pollution is a global crisis. Companies may use eco-friendly ingredients but their containers end up in landfills. There’s millions of tons of plastic dumped into landfills and oceans all over the world. We can’t solve the problem alone, but hope we can help to reduce the 800 deodorant bottles that the average person will dispose of during their lifetime.
