We have gone above and beyond to ensure that while making people look and feel more beautiful that we do everything necessary to leave the whole world a more beautiful and safe place.
TREASURE NOT TRASH
Reducing landfill waste and reversing deforestation of the planet through our ‘Plant a Tree’ with every refill purchased program. Save money on the products you love, while helping preserve our precious earth.
REDUCING SHIPPING POLLUTION WITH LOCAL USPS SERVICES
Shipping our products nationwide using the USPS means fewer polluting delivery trucks heading into neighborhoods every day. The Postal Service delivers 95% of Beauty Society orders along with your daily mail, reducing pollution as your friendly post person already visits your house daily!
100% BIODEGRADABLE PACKING MATERIALS
The packing materials that keep your products safe in shipment are 100% biodegradable organic starch materials that dissolve in water, making them safe for your family and non-harmful to the environment.
We plant a tree with every refill purchased.
By purchasing a Beauty Society refill, you are helping to replenish native trees and help alleviate extreme poverty through our ‘employ to plant’ environmental partnership with Eden Reforitization Projects. Our goal is to plant hundreds of thousands of native trees in Madagascar, Haiti, and Nepal. These specific regions have been ravaged by illegal logging and clear cutting that have destroyed the natural ecosystem.
The deforestation resulting from illegal logging and clear cutting reduces the environment for animals and the reduction of rain-forests has been shown to have a direct connection to global warming. In addition to the impact trees and rain-forests have on the environment, they also have a direct impact on the people that rely on them.
The wages that are earned empower men and women who have been exposed to human trafficking, extreme poverty, or lived as refugees. They are able to support their families and work on small plot farms. Their job is very specific – reforest their nation. For every Beauty Society refill purchased a donation is made, a donation that results in the planting of another tree.

So what do you do with those biodegradable packing peanuts?
- These starch peanuts can be emptied into a large sink, laundry tub or bathtub and dissolved in running warm/hot water or by running the shower. The materials used in this material are not harmful to your pipes and should wash away easily. Any residue left is starch and not harmful to the environment.
- In warmer climates, these starch peanuts can be disposed of in compost settings or gardens. If they blow into neighboring yards or outside, simply wait for the next rain and let nature wash them away!
- Children can dab the ends on a damp sponge and make creative designs with them. When the fun is done, just wash them away with water.
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE REGIONS WHERE YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE WITH
Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea. And now the Malagasy people have no choice but to go into debt or sell themselves and their families into slavery just to survive.
After decades of work and millions of dollars invested by the international community, Haiti remains one of the most environmentally degraded countries on earth. With 98% of Haiti’s forests already gone, the UN estimates that 30% of the nations remaining trees are being destroyed each year. The majority of Haiti’s population uses charcoal as their primary cooking fuel, and charcoal production is a major cause of the continued deforestation of Haiti. This deforestation magnifies the effects of hurricanes and contributes to soil degradation which leaves people without any way to farm their food.
Nepal is one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world and rural villagers in Nepal directly depend on their natural environment for food, shelter, and income. When the local environment is damaged or destroyed, the poor are the first to feel the negative effects. Forced to live on marginal lands, they are at greatest risk. Without financial resources or the knowledge to manage vulnerable resources in a sustainable way, they often further degrade their lands in order to survive. In this way, the problem perpetuates their poverty.
