• 12 - Ensure responsible consumption and production patterns

• 14 - Life below water: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainale development
• 15 - Life on land: Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
The paper stock used in our boxes is sourced sustainably and 100% recyclable. This means there is no plastic coating that impacts the ability of our packaging to be processed when brought to a recycling center.
Our cartons are made of recyclable paper, with no plastic or glue inner layers. While we do still use plastic packing tape for our products due to their versatility and strength, eventually we would love to switch to more sustainable adhesive options. Just as each one of us is still learning and adapting to a lifelong sustainable lifestyle, EQUO is committed to continuing to improve our sustainable processes in the future.
