Gem is an entirely carbon neutral company. We partner with Trace to help offset the carbon footprint for our entire business. 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 so we can offset them.
Anytime you receive a box of Gem goodies, you can rest assured that they are made of 100% recyclable materials. You can also toss them in the recycling bin when you’re finished and give them a chance to come back around!
All Gem products 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. It’s a small way to make a big difference.
We’re working tirelessly to crack this beast… and it really is a beast. Toothpaste needs to be well protected from exposure to air, so it doesn’t deteriorate when it’s trying to do its job. Right now, plastic is the substrate that allow the least amount of air to pass; and therefore keeps your toothpaste unequivocally safe. But fear not…We’re on the case! We’ve got three different options in development right now and are on track to bring you a sustainable tube by early 2022!
