Neighbourhood Botanicals was actually the first UK beauty brand to go carbon negative and is now offsetting twice the amount of carbon it emits. The company works with Huoshui HydroPower Project, which "generates renewable energy for rural Southwest and South Central China." This project not only offsets carbon emissions, but it also funds local initiatives, employment, and educational programmes. Other sustainable initiatives from the company include working with small local suppliers who responsibly source ingredients, using only fully recyclable packaging, and being manufactured and shipped from the UK-based lab. The brand is also working towards a zero-waste refill scheme in early 2021.
