    Unwrapped Life Honors Earth Month with “The Healer” Limited-Edition Hair Bars, in Partnership with Plastic Bank®

    Together with Plastic Bank®, Unwrapped Life is on a mission to prevent over
    2.5 million plastic bottles from entering our oceans.

    This year, in honor of Earth Day Unwrapped Life, the plastic-free beauty brand providing zero-waste alternatives for everyday products, is partnering with Plastic Bank® to keep plastic out of our oceans!

    During the month of April, their goal is to prevent over 2.5 million plastic bottles from entering the ocean and with the launch of “The Healer”, limited-edition shampoo + conditioner bars, they will do just that –every purchase of The Healer prevents 1,000 plastic bottles from entering the ocean. This new partnership strengthens Unwrapped Life’s commitment to helping eliminate Earth’s plastic pollution with the support of Plastic Bank®’s extensive global network of micro recycling markets. By building ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities, Plastic Bank® works to improve the lives of collector communities and reintroduce plastic waste into manufacturing supply chains.

    “Every April, Earth Day inspires us to reflect, learn, and reignite our commitment to reducing the plastic waste that is plaguing our planet, and effecting its most vulnerable inhabitants. The past year has faced us with many challenges, but what always remains is our unwavering devotion to making the world a better place for everybody, everywhere.”
    – Arden Teasdale, CEO

Boasting a unique triple threat oil blend with Abyssinian seed, broccoli seed, and tamanu; frizz is controlled, manageability and shine is improved, and hair is smooth and tangle-free! The conditioner can also be pulled through the hair after towel-drying to further release any remaining tangles prior to combing. A delicious blend of ylang ylang, pink grapefruit, and eucalyptus essential oils, round out this super-bar and… and best of all, smells just like bubblegum!

    1 Product = 10 Trees – Nature’s Path is planting 10 trees for every item sold on their website throughout April to celebrate Earth Month

    As part of 2021 Earth Month celebration and in partnership with tentree, Nature’s Path is planting 10 trees for every item sold on www.naturespath.com during the month of April 2021 (up to 100,000 trees). (Includes all of Nature’s Path brands: Nature’s Path, Love Crunch, EnviroKidz and Que Pasa.)

    At Nature’s Path, they hold ourselves accountable for doing what’s best for people and the planet. Of course, protecting the earth is a big job. Luckily, Nature’s Path got great partners like tentree, whose comfy Earth-First essentials are changing the way we think about everyday items like clothing and textiles to protect the world we play in. With their help (and yours), Nature’s Path is out to shake things up and create a cleaner, greener future.

    Besides constantly looking at innovative ways to make apparel with the smallest possible footprint and create more circular supply chains, tentree is on a mission to plant 1 billion trees. Why? Because it’s one of the best ways to create a more sustainable future. That’s why on April 1st, Nature’s Path became Planet Partners and set out on a mission to support tentree by planting up to 100,000 trees—10 trees for every item purchased through their website in the US. Nature’s Path also sat down with tentree to talk about their goals surrounding sustainability, the organic movement, and food security.

    With a product line of over 150 delightfully nutritious cold cereals, granolas, oatmeal, waffles, tortilla chips, salsa, and more, Nature’s Path is the largest organic breakfast and snack food brand in North America, and is sold in more than 50 countries around the world. Brands within the Nature’s Path family include Love Crunch, Qi’a, Que Pasa, and EnviroKidz. All Nature’s Path products are Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified, and are made with wholesome, premium ingredients that nourish consumers in a healthy and delicious way.

    Nature’s Path believes that everyone has a right to organic food, regardless of circumstance. Over the past 11 years, the company has donated more than $40 million to food banks, endangered species, community organic gardens, school gardens, frontline workers, children’s hospitals, and other organizations in need across North America.

    Nature’s Path believes everyone has the right to quality organic food and that’s why they maintain an annual commitment of donating $2 million worth of food to those in need. Nature’s Path also provides financial support to urban gardening projects who grow fresh organic food and who help nurture their communities.

    Nature’s Path mission is to Leave the Earth Better than you found it, and every day they strive to move closer to this, whether it’s through the food they make or the causes and communities they support. Nature’s Path has a series of sustainability goals and targets that are part of the strategic and annual business planning process. Nature’s Path was the first North American cereal company to have their manufacturing facilities Zero Waste certified and they are committed to making all their packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. Making bold and ambitious commitments and engaging the internal teams to achieve them is a powerful way to solve complex issues.
