Hain-Celestial recognizes the need to be good stewards of all natural resources. Learn more about our commitment to the environment.
Our company is committed to reducing our ecological footprint to help preserve the planet, now and for future generations. Recognizing the need to be good stewards of all natural resources, we are dedicated to reducing, reusing and recycling across all areas of our business and we continuously look for new ways to help protect our planet, from the field to the factory to the shelf.
Packaging Choices. We use environmentally friendly packaging and have a corporate initiative to continually seek out opportunities to further our sustainability and reduce our environmental impact. All of our packaging is recyclable and we deliberately seek out only containers made from materials that are readily accepted by most curbside recycling programs. A majority of our plastic bottles are made from 100% post consumer resin and we strive to maximize the use of post consumer material in all of our containers. This creates a second use for millions of plastic bottles annually that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Our unit cartons are made with 80% post consumer material and the paperboard is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, assuring that only responsibly sourced virgin and recycled fiber is used in its creation.
Please help us reduce landfill space and save precious resources by recycling all of your household packaging whenever possible. Together we can create a more sustainable future.
Carbon Footprint. We incessantly look for new ways to reduce our environmental impact. Whenever possible, we source packaging components and ingredients locally to reduce the carbon cost of transportation. Simple choices, like sourcing our containers from suppliers near our California manufacturing facility (rather than from Asia as so many personal care manufacturers do) can make a great difference in reducing carbon emissions.
We strive to run our business in a manner that promotes long-term solutions to environmental problems, maintains the integrity of natural ecosystems, and conserves the quality of air, water, and soil for our children's children.
