OTO IS COMMITTED TO REBALANCING OUR PLANET AS WELL AS OUR PEOPLE

oto sustainability

No action comes without impact. We carefully consider every choice we make to balance creating the most effective products and experiences while delivering them in the most thoughtful and sustainable way.

Building a more sustainable future was a pillar of our crowdfunding platform at the end of 2021 and we have 3 areas of focus:

1. INTENTIONAL INGREDIENTS

sustainable ingredients

OTO sources the best ingredients available from ethical and sustainable sources, to create the best products possible for people and planet.

All our products are +90% naturally derived, with most being +95%. We use naturally derived ingredients wherever possible. However, natural isn't always better; in some instances, synthetic ingredients represent a safer, stable and more sustainable option.

We have an extensive list of ingredients that we do not and will never use, including Parabens, Phthalates, DEA, MEA, Synthetic Fragrance, Synthetic Colourants.

2. PURPOSEFUL PACKAGING

sustainable packaging

Our target is to be 100% recyclable or refillable in 2023 and we are in the development phase of this project.

We are also on a mission to ensure all materials used in our packaging are sustainably sourced and made from recycled material where possible. Our cardboard pulp is sourced from FSC and PEFC accredited Holmen Group who hold a platinum Ecovadis rating.

3. CONSCIOUS OPERATIONS

operational sustainability

As well as sustainably sourcing our raw materials wherever possible, we are currently auditing our supply chain and production to minimise OTO’s impact on the planet, and reduce unnecessary travel, power, waste and materials.

Further than carbon neutral, we seek to offset our footprint with positive action and will be sharing more on this in 2022.
