preserve products

Today Lu 'n Am would like to highlight a line of products who takes the philosophy "reduce, reuse and recycle" to the next level.

Preserve products philosophy is "nothing wasted nothing gained". The line of products which includes personal care items (toothbrushes and razors), kitchenware (cutting boards, colanders) and tableware (cutlery and plates) are all made with 100% recycled materials. The company's goal is to keep its products out of the landfill.

Preserve has a partnership with Stonyfield Farm to reuse their yogurt containers in their products. Reusing the plastic results in less resources (water, energy, oil, etc.) being used to produce their products. Less green house gases are also emitted in the environment.

Not only does Preserve use recycled plastic, they encourage their customers to recycle once they need to replace the item. I have purchased preserve toothbrushes for our whole family. Once they were worn, I was able to send them back to Preserve in a postage pre-paid envelope. They have a similar program with their razors. Talk about closing the loop - no waste!

Preserve products:

* are not tested on animals

* are made in the United States, working with US manufacturers

* do not contain toxic chemicals such as BPA

* uses clean energy and energy reduction measures at their office headquarters

* support local non-profit organizations

Next time you shop for personal care items, consider a purchase from Preserve. The website has a handy dandy shop search feature so you can find the nearest store that carries this eco-friendly line.

Cheers, Kimberly
