It’s what guides what we’re doing today and how we envision tomorrow.

WHAT WE’RE DOING

NATURE-INFUSED FORMULAS

  • To create our clean products, our international team of scientists and botanists marries the amazing powers of naturally-derived ingredients with the most advanced scientific research.


  • For us, it’s not about rushing to be first, but about giving you our best. Our development cycle is rigorous and it generally takes over two years to develop any product because we refine formula after formula until we get it right.


  • We never lower our standards (and neither should you). We conduct significant evaluation and testing to ensure the safety and exceptional performance of every product.

WHAT WE’RE DOING

MINIMAL PACKAGING

TODAY

All of our cartons are FSC certified, made with paperboard from responsibly managed forests. 55% of our packaging by weight is recyclable, refillable, reusable, recycled or recoverable.


TOMORROW

We’re on it—by 2023 our goal is to ensure that at least 80% of our packaging by weight is recyclable, refillable, reusable, recycled or recoverable.

WHAT WE’RE DOING

CONSCIOUS MANUFACTURING

TODAY

We use 100% renewable electricity to manufacture our products in primary facilities. Because it’s the right thing to do.


TOMORROW

But we’re not done. By the end of 2020, we will achieve zero-industrial waste-to-landfill for all global manufacturing and distribution sites.2

WHAT WE’RE DOING

OUR STORES

  • We prioritize the use of low-emitting, recyclable and/or recycled materials in all our new store fixtures and visual merchandising.


  • We’re using materials that emit no or low VOCs and/or contain post-industrial recycled content for the wall finishings in our new stores.


  • Counters in our new stores are made with FSC certified paper and/or post-consumer recycled paper; they are also Greenguard certified.


  • Origins is proud to power all of our freestanding stores in North America with 100 percent renewable electricity.

 

1 At Origins, “Clean” means that we extensively research and evaluate our ingredients for purity, efficacy and safety. And we continue to take steps to improve how we take care of the earth—from using manufacturing processes that help reduce our impact on the environment, to planting trees worldwide.


2 Waste goal includes industrial waste from 50 in-scope locations (14 manufacturing sites, 31 distribution sites, and five innovation sites). Industrial waste includes the solid component of the waste stream arising from commercial and industrial activities (not collected as Municipal Solid Waste), but does not contain Listed Waste, Hazardous Waste or Radioactive Waste.
