Our Commitment to
a Healthier Planet
a Healthier Planet
At Hawkins & Brimble we care. We care for the people around us and we care for the planet. Just because we’re a new brand doesn’t mean we can’t do our bit. Every year, 8 million tons of plastic waste escapes into the oceans from coastal nations. If we don’t act now, by the year 2050, plastic will outweigh fish in the ocean. Scary stuff.
In February 2021, we teamed up with the Marine Conservation Society as one of our first commitments to a healthier planet. We have also made the decision to repackage our best-selling products into aluminium bottles, accompanied with 100% recyclable pouches. When you reach the end of the bottle, simply refill and go again.
We hope you enjoy your bathroom upgrade, whilst being kind on the environment.
“We applaud Hawkins & Brimble for their commitment to minimizing their impact on the planet. We are excited to work together to spread the word about how amazing our marine environment is, and how important it is to look after it.
A huge thank you to Hawkins & Brimble for their support”.

Keen to Know More?
We are working to reduce our carbon emissions which is why we are proud to support suppliers who are mainly UK based. Other steps we are taking towards a healthier planet include:
> All our cardboard packaging is made from 100% recycled board.
> We were one of the first brands to move all our plastic packaging to 100% PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) plastic. This means the plastic has been reprocessed to be re-used and better still, PCR plastic conserves energy and non-renewable resources.
> We don’t use any plastic in our transit packaging and will keep it that way.
> We use glass packaging for our moisturisers and beard oil which is easily recyclable.
> We are aiming to reduce our use of plastic by 95% by the end of 2021 (more news to follow!)
