Sustainability

We’re a small company, but doing the right thing is…everything. Here’s a few ways we’re making inroads into making personal care that cares for the earth our thing.

Recyclable Packaging

Our current tubes are made up of multiple material layers that are fused together (different plastic and aluminium). We have partnered with Red Cycle, a Melbourne-based recycling organisation, who are able to process the mixed materials in our toothpaste tubes for recycling. You can find Red Cycle bins at your local Coles & Woolworths stores. Our mouthwash bottle and cap is also fully recyclable, as well as our outer packaging on all of our products.

Carbon Neutrality

We partner withTrace to help offset our carbon footprint. It’s simple, we tell them all the things we do, from manufacturing toothpaste, to how many desks we have at the office, to how we get our toothpaste to Mecca; then they help us calculate our emissions. We then offset our emissions by helping to fund Trace projects both locally and internationally, including land restoration, preventing deforestation and enhancing biodiversity. Offsetting is a low impact, short term action we can take today, however, it’s not enough. We are currently looking across our entire supply chain to see how we can reduce our impact further.

Recyclable Boxes

Anytime you receive a box of Gem products, you can rest assured that our mailer box contains 49% recycled materials and is recyclable through curb side recycling. So, please toss it in the recycling bin when you’re finished and give it a chance to come back around!

Local Suppliers

Our toothpaste, whitening pen, mouthwash and breath spray are made right here in Australia. Not only is this good for our local economy, it means your oral care essentials don’t have to travel huge distances to make their way to you, therefore reducing our carbon footprint.
