To protect the Soak bath and shower bombs against moisture and bacteria, I use 100% biodegradeable shrink film Biolefin TM. The fine layer of Biolefin that is wrapped around the bath and shower bombs ensures that they do not start to fizz during transport or that you get a crushed bath bomb. This shrink film is not converted into micro plastics, but into food for bacteria and other micro-organisms after it ends up in the environment. Because the process of biological degradation already starts after 18 months, you can simply compost the foil. Besides that it’s super practical, it’s also good for our planet.
Wherever possible, Soak By Anne Lynn opts for ecologically friendly and sustainable materials. For example, I never test on animals and choose boxes and shipping boxes that consist of 100% recycled paper. In addition, Soak’s shipping boxes are very compact so that no filling is lost and you ultimately have less waste.
The production of bath and shower bombs takes place in Belgium and I mainly work with other Belgian suppliers, which also limits the distance for deliveries. I closely follow the developments of environmental alternatives and I try to choose the most environmental friendly solution wherever possible. If you have any suggestions, please do let me know!
