What we are doing at Youth Beauty to better the Environment
As a business, we have both the responsibility and opportunity to do the right thing by our people, our communities and the planet.
When it comes to packing your orders, we recycle our cardboard boxes as much as we can.
Whenever we head out to do our weekly food shopping, if we see boxes available for use we grab as many as we can and bring them into Youth Beauty to re-use in packing order to our clients.
We have also started to shred old paper documents in replacement of bubble wrap as well as using "junk mail" to protect your products in the package. By doing this we hope to reduce the use of Bubble Wrap to where we will no longer use this method for packing.
Goodbye Plastic Bags!
Removing single-use plastic bags is a big step, but it’s just one part of our overall aim to reduce and remove as much unnecessary plastic across our business as we can.
But what do I carry my products in?
For clients who walk in to collect their orders from us, we will no longer use Plastic Bags. You are more than welcome to bring along your own bags with you otherwise we will now have Compostable & 100% Biodegradable bags
Compliant with the NZ Government regulations
