We recognize that natural and environmentally friendly products are growing in importance to our customers, and we are committed to expanding our range of offerings to meet this demand. This includes natural beauty products that meet the European Union standards for reduced environmental risk and impact, including Avalon® Natural Products, Yes to Carrots®, Dr. Bronners and Weleda. These beauty brands have also signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics.
Our own Earth Essentials® product line offers natural and environmentally preferred products that are made with 100-percent recycled fibers and includes plates and bowls made entirely from natural and renewable sugarcane. We’ve recently added kitchen bags to our line of sustainable products. Greenpeace awarded our Earth Essentials paper towels, toilet papers and napkins its “Green Tree” stamp of approval in 2009, a recommendation that stands today.
