Pioneer in Repurposing :
The circular economy sits at the heart of what they do – they even named themselves after it! UpCircle also hints at ‘upcycling’, the process of making something better from things that already exist.
All of their products come in 99% recyclable packaging with glass jars or bottles with aluminum lids. They even show a lot of ways to reuse/ repurpose their empty bottles on their Instagram @upcirclebeauty. They also offer plastic-free refills on their website.
Aside from the actual products, their marketing materials are made from paper that’s made from recycled coffee cups and we only use paper tape which has been made from recycled fibers.
1/3 of all food produced is wasted. It’s one of the most wasteful industries in the world meaning that it gives companies like Upcircle a huge number of ingredients from which to do better things. Food ingredients can have powerful effects on the body - inside and out – so there’s an opportunity for them to create beauty products from food ingredients that are being discarded yet still have much to offer our skin. They started with sourcing coffee grounds from artisan cafes and repurposing them, now they have given numerous food waste like fruit stones and chai spices a new life in terms of skincare.
Their ultimate mission is to leave the world better than they found it by transforming ingredients that would otherwise be discarded into natural, organic beauty products – better for you, better for the world.
