This product contains recyclable materials. It may be recyclable with curbside recycling collections, but might need to be sent to a special recycling facility. Contact your local waste-hauler or recycling facility for details. Appropriate facilities may not exist in your area.

Sustainable Lifestyle

This product helps promote a more sustainable lifestyle. Whether it encourages re-use and the movement away from disposable products, or it promotes sustainable actions like recycling and composting, this product can help you lower your environmental footprint.

Low Impact Ink

Companies can adopt multiple practices to print clothing, books, and catalogs in a more environmentally safe way. Low impact inks can include vegetable, soy, or water based alternatives, and generally do not contain harmful toxins like heavy metals or phthalates.

Recycled Paper

Recycled paper can contain both pre- and post-consumer recycled content. Once paper is sent to a recycling facility, it’s washed to remove any inks and converted to a watery slush called “slurry.” This slurry is spread and rolled to create different types of paper. This process keeps paper out of the landfill, prevents trees from being cut down, and saves the energy and resources needed to create virgin paper products.

FSC Certified Wood

Products with the Forest Stewardship Council certification are made from or with wood sourced from FSC managed forests. FSC standards ensure the respect and wellbeing of indigenous peoples, forest workers, and local communities. Harvesting in certified forests maintains the ecological functions of each habitat. FSC prohibits the use of pesticides, GMOs, and the conversion of forests to plantations. As a third party, not-for-profit agency, FSC provides nonbiased audits of forest management.

The EarthHero Library

At EarthHero, we’re all about making sustainability more accessible. We also recognize that it’s not always easy to do the “right thing”, especially when you don’t know what that is! We truly believe that sustainability shouldn’t be a compromise or incite confusion or anxiety!

That’s why we work hard to help out our customers in every possible way we can. Whether that’s providing your favorite plastic-free essentials, or creating blog content that takes a deep-dive into eco-textiles, environmental anxiety, or microplastics – we want to be your one-stop resource. We’ve also come across some true eco-experts along the way. In our “EarthHero Library” you’ll find a collection of books that have helped us wrap our heads around the difficulties facing our planet and the various ways that we, as people, can get involved. We hope they will bring you inspiration and advice, too!

    Very much related to time and place and not everyone can just move for a clean start. Some of us need to stay where we are and make the best of out situation. Would not recommend.
