 A PLASTIC FREE

FUTURE

ENDING PLASTIC POLLUTION, ONE FACE MASK AT A TIME

Kelp & Co. was founded in 2018 (yes, we’re the new kid on the block), by 23 year old Millie (another new kid on the block) with the vision to give skin care a makeover (pardon the pun). The beauty industry can be really ugly, becoming one of the biggest contributors to plastic waste & over-packaging globally. Whilst some plastic is necessary, a lot quite frankly isn’t. Nor are the boxes within boxes of unnecessary packaging, that have become common place, as brands try to outdo each other with the biggest and best unboxing experience. The result – a wasteful industry that is anything but beautiful.

“At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year.”

Reducing our plastic footprint

We set out to produce skincare without out all the BS – cutting out as much packaging & plastic as possible from our product, whilst also seeking renewable & bio-degradable materials where we can. We just want to create damn good skincare that doesn’t compromise the very thing that inspires us – Mother Nature. Although not quite there yet, we’re well on our way to being 100% plastic free, which trust us is a lot harder than you might think! We don’t want a pat on the back, we think this should be the new normal & hope other brands start to follow suit.

Producing damn good products

Sure we’re trying to reduce plastic & packaging waste, but as if that matters if our skincare sucks. Luckily, we think we’ve got that right. We started by choosing incredible natural ingredients that we love – Australian clay, aloe vera & kelp. We then set about creating vegan skincare, that is not only animal free but also sustainable & cruelty-free. The result, our amazing Kelp & Co. face mask! We love it and hope you will too.

Helping fix the current mess

Whilst preventing further plastic pollution is at the core of what we’re striving to achieve, we felt we also had a role to play in helping clean up our oceans & waterways. That’s why we donate 5% of our sales to the Seabin Foundation, the Not-For-Profit arm of the Sea Bin Project – a revolutionary ocean cleaning technology created by two Aussie surfers.Sea Bins are a sustainable floating garbage bin that collects water borne plastics and trash 24 hours a day. One Sea Bin can collect 1 ton of debris per year, all for less than $1 a day.
