At Pharmaca, we’re committed to celebrating and preserving the earth, and we take pride in our offering of environmentally friendly products, from health and beauty items to supplements to non-toxic home products. Here are just a few terrific things you’ll find at Pharmaca that are great for you and the environment:
Reusable water bottles
Carry a reusable bottle and you’ve got easy access to hydration all day long. BPA-free and available in a variety of fun styles and colors, these non-leaching bottles are the perfect way to quench your thirst and eliminate the need for disposable bottles.
Eco-Fact: Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour.
Skincare made with organic and biodynamic ingredients
Choose cleansers, moisturizers and makeup from conscientious producers like Juice Beauty, Jurlique and Primavera. Their support for organic farms keeps pesticides out of the environment—and off of your skin!
From cute eyeglasses from Zoom to Preserve’s sturdy toothbrushes, purchasing goods made of recycled plastic keeps it out of landfills, saves energy and increases demand for these types of products.
Eco-Fact: Recycling 1 ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space.
Eco-friendly household cleaners
Look for detergents and cleansers from Seventh Generation, Mrs. Meyer’s and Biokleen. They’re great at getting the dirt out without filling your home with chemicals like phosphates or petroleum products. Pharmaca also helps conserve plastic by offering refillable, recyclable containers and refill pouches.
Recycled content paper products
Pick up Seventh Generation’s tissues, feminine care products and bath tissue made from post-consumer-content recycled paper and you’ll go a long way toward conserving our forests.
Eco-Fact: Each year, nearly 900 million trees are cut down to provide raw materials for American paper and pulp mills.
Wild-crafted, organic supplements and herbal remedies
Pharmaca carries a diverse assortment of supplements from manufacturers like New Chapter, Herb Pharm and Reserveage Organics who carefully harvest only the finest-quality ingredients. Filled with organic roots and mushrooms or wild-crafted herbs that are sustainably gathered from their natural habitat, these supplements often come in recyclable packaging.
About 14 million disposable batteries end up in landfills each year, allowing chemicals like mercury and cadmium to leach into groundwater. But there’s no need to throw out rechargeables—just pop them in the recharger for a few hours and you’re good to go!
Eco-Fact: Each rechargeable battery can replace 500 to 1,000 disposables.
