Tropic with Joy: Caring – More Than Skin Deep

Originally posted at

If you’re familiar with the Tropic range of skincare products, you’re probably aware of the the importance of creating products that are natural and cruelty-free, in harmony with the world around us. As you’d expect, the commitment to caring doesn’t end there. Tropic has an ‘Infinite Purpose’, a commitment to create a cleaner, greener, more empowered world.

A huge part of that commitment is the impact of packaging on the environment. In 2019, 0% of waste was sent to landfill and there’s a conscious effort to consider and maximise the effect of packaging on the environment. When a box of Tropic Skincare products arrives, there’s no damaging plastics to be seen and even the air-filled bubble-wrap that prevents products from being damaged in transit is made out of a specially bio-degradable, potato-based material.

As the message says, simply add this packaging material to your garden compost area, like any potato peelings, and it will simply compost down, helping wildlife – and your garden – to thrive!

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to go whale-watching, in Monterey Bay, California. We’re all now aware of the importance of keeping waste plastic out of the sea but the sight of humpback whales lunge-feeding in the wild was an emotional reminder that we should do all we can to minimise our effect on the sea – and everything that lives there!
