About Plainville Homestead
All products are handcrafted in small batches using quality, safe, and researched ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible, and working with trusted, reputable suppliers. Nearly all raw ingredients are USDA-certified organic or Ecocert approved. No parabens, formaldehyde, sulfates, or harsh/harmful chemicals, and absolutely no animal testing. Plainville Homestead is a strong advocate for transparency, which is why you will always find a detailed ingredients list with all products. Your skin is the largest organ on your body. Know what you put on it!
Everything down to packaging, shipping materials, and labels have been thoughtfully sourced to reduce my carbon footprint and be environmentally friendly.
- Many of the product labels are made with 100% post-consumer waste. Packing tape is made with 50% recycled content and certified recycle-friendly.
- Gift boxes, fillers, gift wrap, tissue paper, shopping bags, and most shipping boxes are also made from recycled materials and fibers.
- Packing slip is printed on tree-free paper, made from bagasse, a by-product of sugar cane, biodegradable, compostable, and of course, recyclable.
- Cushion packaging material is made of biodegradable and recyclable kraft paper, an eco-friendly alternative to bubble wrap.
- Any cello bags used are made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles, certified biodegradable, compostable, and made carbon zero.
- Business cards are made with 100% recycled fiber and bleached without the use of chlorine compounds; ancient forest friendly, Green-e Certified, and acid-free.
- Packing peanuts are eco-friendly, as they are starch based and simply dissolve away in water if you have no use for them.
