earth day 2023: how we’re doing our small part to help the planet
Happy Earth Day! Today is all about celebrating the achievements we’ve all made (yep, including you) towards protecting the planet and raising awareness around the importance of its preservation. In honour of Earth Day, here’s an insight into some of the ways we’re trying to do our part to contribute to the well-being of our planet.
1% FOR THE PLANET MEMBER
alott donates 1% of sales from our eco-friendly haircare products to 1% for the Planet, a global organisation bringing businesses together to help preserve Earth. All the money donated goes towards making a difference for future generations such as fighting climate change, planting trees, and protecting wildlife. So, if you think about it, it’s you that helps us make a change. Now that’s what we call teamwork.

REPLACING SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WITH REFILLABLE BOTTLES
Helping to reduce the production of single-use plastic - which is approximately 50% of all plastic produced - we use refillable bottles made of glass and aluminium that can be refilled again and again (and again!).
To refill your Sea Salt Spray, simply purchase our Sea Salt Spray Refill pouch to top up the goodness. When you’ve collected 5 refill pouches, we’ll provide you with a free postage label to send them back to us to be recycled. As a thank you, we’ll send you another refill pouch. Sound good? Great.
We’re also offering 20% off refill pouches this weekend for Earth Day – use code REFILL20 at check out.
PRIORITISING NATURAL INGREDIENTS
We prioritise natural ingredients in our hair products, without harsh chemicals that negatively impact the planet. You won’t find any sulfates, parabens, artificial fragrances, silicones, or SLS anywhere near our eco-friendly haircare products, so when they do eventually return to nature, they can safely do so.
A key ingredient found in all our formulas is Halen Môn sea salt, which detoxifies the scalp, absorbs excess oil, and gives texture and mega volume. It’s produced in Anglesey, off the coast of Wales, by a family-run business that’s audited by The Soil Association to make sure no additional ingredients or chemicals are found in the production or cleaning processes.
CERTIFIED CRUELTY-FREE AND VEGAN
We’re proud to say we’re certified as cruelty-free and vegan by PETA, AKA People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and The Vegan Society. We believe the lives of animals are just as important as the lives of humans, and we need to use our voices to speak up for them. But what exactly does going cruelty-free do for the planet? Well, it helps us be more environmentally conscious as no chemicals are used in our products.
To discover whether these chemicals are harmful or not, they’re tested on animals first. During these tests, many toxic ingredients are released into the environment and disposed of into the soil, air, and waterways which are all contributing to destroying our planet.
ONLY PRODUCING WHAT WE NEED
Our sustainable haircare products are made in smaller batches to be more environmentally conscious by reducing our carbon footprint and avoiding wastage.
To maximise shelf-life once purchased, store our products in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat. For the Moisturising Shampoo Bar, it’s best placed in our custom-made Shampoo Bar Dish to properly drain the bar in between usage and get more washes out of it.
