Alpine Provisions

Creating life after plastic

Who They Are

As a kid growing up in the suburbs, Alpine Provisions Founder Joshua Scott Onysko, never felt like he really fit in. So when he was 16, he dropped out of school, bought a 1973 VW camper, and moved to Vermont. Arriving at the peak of Autumn, Joshua found himself amongst the golden trees and in the crisp mountain air. Finally, he was where he belonged. From then on, Joshua has worked to share the experience of the outdoors with everyone, no matter how far from the mountains they might be.

In 2018, Joshua started Alpine Provisions, a plastic-free and organic personal care line, as a way to use business to create positive social and environmental change. He knew he wanted to share the beauty of nature with everyone, particularly those who have historically been unable to access it, so he established the Alpine Provisions Scholarship Fund. This fund supports the Outward Bound Leadership program and provides three-week-long wilderness adventures for disadvantaged youth. Alpine Provisions believe that for future generations to understand and respect nature, they must first be able to witness the life-shaping perspective of being immersed in the mountains, forests, and untamed wilderness of the planet. By giving the gift of the outdoors to the youth of today, we can help inspire them into becoming conscious leaders of the future. Nature is infused into every aspect and ingredient of Alpine Provisions’ products, always staying true and respectful to people, planet, and purity.

Why We Like Them

Clean beauty starts with clean ingredients and there is no compromise made when it comes to each Alpine Provisions product. Careful dedication is given to find and sustainably source the best organic oils, saps, and flowers nature has to provide. Using only certified organic and fair trade ingredients means that Alpine Provisions can ensure that each component of their incredible body washes, shampoos, and soaps was grown ethically and processed without the use of toxic chemicals. Cultivating crops without pesticides means less soil and fewer waterways are depleted or compromised. Organic ingredients like coconut and olive oil, shea butter, and aloe vera nourish and soothe the skin while fragrant essential oils delight and enliven the senses. With Alpine Provisions, your daily routine is both good for you and prioritizes the health and wellness of the planet.

As a Leaping Bunny partner, Alpine Provisions operates on a non-negotiable code to never use or abuse animals in the process of creating beauty products for humans. As the most impactful beings on the planet, it is the responsibility of people to protect the earth and all living beings on it. Alpine Provisions stands by their commitment to being cruelty-free and 100% vegan and guarantees no product was or will ever be tested on animals. Plus, no product contains or uses any animal extracts or by-products in the ingredients or manufacturing process.

Additionally, Alpine Provisions also believes that eliminating plastic is critical in order to truly be cruelty-free and better for the planet and all creatures who inhabit it. With discarded plastics overwhelming our landfills and contaminating our oceans, the only real solution is to go plastic-free. Every Alpine Provisions product comes in either 100% recyclable or compostable packaging with hyper-detailed, geometric designs that capture the spirit of nature and the brand. All liquid products come in aluminum bottles lined with a BPA-free protective coating to make them infinitely recyclable. With 84% of aluminum ever made still in use today, this makes it a great packaging choice to cut down on waste and create a reusable and refillable bottle. Plus, it won’t break in the shower! Each moisturizing lip balm and effective deodorant come adventure-ready and packaged in compostable paper tubes, eliminating the need for clunky, wasteful alternatives.

From day one it has been critical to the brand’s mission that a portion of sales goes to support the Alpine Provisions Scholarship Fund. This fund helps introduce disadvantaged youth to nature through the Outward Bound Leadership adventure programs. These programs provide young adults with formative outdoor learning experiences in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Utah, Alaska, and Wyoming. (https://www.outwardbound.org/)
