Sustainability Practices - How we go Green
Sustainability is at the core of what we do. We’ve got a product that looks out for you on and off of the court. EDGE is thinking about your game and our world Formula, Packaging, and Fulfillment: we’ve got you and the Earth in mind.
Creating EDGE, we wanted you to be able to play at the top of your game while taking care of our planet at the same time.
Our formula meets the EPA’s Safer Choice Standards and is made with an alcohol-free, biodegradable green solvent that is VOC-exempt. This means EDGE is safe for your lungs, our planet, and even your pets! We use non-toxic, bio-based rubber softeners picked with customers and the environment in mind.
Material-minded: We use glass bottles and cardboard packaging to minimize plastic use. Glass is completely and endlessly recyclable back to its original condition. Plastic makes up for 20% of garbage in our landfills.
By choosing a product that can be forever recycled and repurposed our glass bottles help out our landfills intake. For our packaging, we went compostable with cardboard. Cardboard decomposes at a rate almost 100X faster than plastics with cardboard in its worst conditions taking about 5 years, and plastic at about 450.
We partner with Shopify to offer Shop Pay at checkout - choosing this payment option completely offsets the Carbon Emissions associated with your delivery.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
In order to achieve our 1.5°C climate goal, climate scientists assert that we need to remove 10 gigatonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere each year. Carbon management programs like reforestation play an important role in carbon offsetting, but they aren’t enough. We need to reduce the amount of carbon we release into the atmosphere, and drastically increase the amount we are removing using a variety of techniques2.
Our goal is to make it as seamless as possible for you to do your part.
