The plant-based, organic beauty brand Alpine Provisions is making all its product packages plastic-free, in an effort to support the plastic-free movement and inspire the body care industry to do the same.

The company has created prototypes of aluminium body care bottles, which the most recycled material on the planet. Shipping aluminium saves millions of pounds of carbon emissions each year due to how light aluminium is. The company is also using paper for packaging their products such as paper deodorant tubes, paper lip balm tubes, and paper bar soap wraps. Paper is also environmentally friendly because on average five trees are planted for every tree harvested.

Alpine Provisions founder Joshua Onysko told VegNews “I’ve been plant-based since 1997 for animal-welfare reasons when I read that plastic pollution kills over 100 million marine animals a year I knew I had to make the change,”.

“It took 14 months and a lot of testing and design work, but we are proud to be going plastic-free this summer. We are excited to be where we are but we all must do this together. I want us all to realise a life after plastic.”

The company is currently hosting a crowdfunding campaign to support its plastic-free launch and has so far raised $50,000. Alpine has created a “Lather it Forward” as part of its campaign, a pledge that makes essential cleaning “community packs,” which include hand sanitiser, hand soap, and all-purpose soap available to those most financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
