Sustainability is one of the founding principals and a cornerstone that Greenbriar Market + Refillery is built on. Now more than ever it is essential that we work to find ways to reduce our impact on the planet and minimize the waste we leave behind. We have tried to tackle being sustainable head on by adopting the following best practices:
All of our products have been carefully selected to have as small of an impact on the planet as possible. Where ever practical we have partnered with local makers. This helps to reduce the shipping distance requirements, offsetting the carbon impact while supporting Canada. Most of our products come packaged in no waste, recycled or upcycled materials that minimize what our customers throw away.
The Greenbriar Collection
The Greenbriar Collection products are produced locally with great effort to keep plastic packing out of the line up. Having the option to either repurpose or refill the containers helps divert waste from the landfill. When they do reach the end of their life cycle, all our private label containers are either compostable or recyclable.
We have requested that our suppliers, whenever possible, limit the packaging and ship as efficiently as they can. We carefully receive all our shipments with the intent to reuse packaging so you might notice your order arrives in a repurposed box with repurposed packing. All our bubble mailers and shipping labels are supplied by either Friendly Mailer or Noissue and are either compostable or biodegradable.
At Greenbriar Market + Refillery we are dedicated to finding products that perform amazingly for our customers while having the smallest possible footprint. A focus on concentrated formulas reduces the requirement to needlessly ship water back and forth across the country. Our suppliers have been carefully chosen for their commitment to the environment and sustainable manufacturing processes. Many or our products are certified organic, fair trade & cruelty free.
