Our Sustainable Approach
Here's a snapshot of where we're currently at as a company:
Westman Atelier products will steadily transition to refillable packaging beginning as soon as 2022. Our team is working meticulously to ensure that these are produced using the most sustainable materials available and through an environmentally-responsible supply chain process. In the meantime, our product empties can be dropped at Credo boutiques nationwide for recycling in partnership with Pact.
All of our secondary packaging is recyclable. We use Invercote board for our folding cartons, which has one of the lowest carbon footprints of any paperboard available; our folding carton supplier is FSC certified and has the French Certification of Imprim’vert, which is committed to reducing waste.
Our e-commerce boxes, brush boxes, and shopping bags are made from recycled content; our tissue paper is made of 60-70% post-industrial fiber and 10% post-consumer fibers.
We work only with labs that are proactive and forward-thinking in their approach to sustainability. This includes measures to meaningfully lower water consumption each year, obtaining energy from renewable sources, and initiating long-term traceability of recovered waste.
All website orders are carbon neutral and powered by Shopify Planet. Through Planet we are able to support promising climate solutions and groundbreaking technologies that remove carbon for a minimum of 1,000 yrs.
We are members of Pact Collective, a group of beauty industry stakeholders taking responsibility for our packaging. Pact has two main goals: to collect and recycle beauty packaging and educate the beauty industry on sustainable packaging. You can send in your empties by following the instructions here.
NO ANIMAL TESTING
We do not test our products on animals, or work with any suppliers that do.
Our makeup brushes are handmade by artisans in Japan using sustainable FSC-certified birchwood handles and cruelty-free synthetic bristles.
We believe in repurposing our luxury packaging whenever possible. A few of our favorite team strategies: Turn your empty Eye Pod vessel into a travel-size jewelry case or on-the-go pillbox. Convert the 'click-and-go' caps of our stick formulas into the world's chicest office and kitchen magnets. Scrape single-use doses of makeup into our slim mirrored compacts or pods for a hands-free evening out.
