Certification story

Bower Collective makes sustainable living simple. They are an online retail platform for sustainable home and personal care products, delivered using our innovative closed loop refill system. Its vision is to eliminate plastic waste and help its community create more sustainable homes. Bower Collective’s sustainability approach revolves around waste reduction, ethical supply chains, low carbon and sustainable ingredients.

Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. Over the next year, Bower Collective will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, the company has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
