The global population is projected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. The
equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the
natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles.
Water, energy, and food are impacted the most by over consumption and production.
Our survival depends on finding a solution.
Responsible consumption supports Sustainable Development Goal #12 - Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
What we are doing.
We are working to ensure that all existing and new suppliers adhere to
our Ethical Code of Conduct, as we aim to preserve the environment and
the well-being of the communities in which we source from.
DECIEM holds itself accountable for its impact on People, Earth, and Animals, and we are consciously working towards transparent and responsible sourcing.
Bye-Bye Black Friday/KNOWvember:
Since 2019 we have closed our stores and website on Black Friday for a day of nothingness. We strongly believe that skin care decisions should be made on education over impulse, and the rushed atmosphere of a flash sale does not align with this point.
In November 2020, DECIEM launched the KNOWvember campaign with the goal of creating a culture of mindful and sustainable consumption. The campaign included educational content to ensure our consumers were shopping mindfully and slowly.
Additionally, instead of providing a discount dedicated to Black Friday, we provided a month long discount of 23%.
What you can do.
Everyone has an opportunity to decrease the amount and types of products they consume. Equipping yourself with product knowledge is one of the first steps you can take to make a difference.
Here are some reflective questions you can ask yourself before purchasing a product:
- Do I need this product and what purpose will it serve?
- Is this product Cruelty-Free?
- Is the company working on sustainability and social impact?
- Contact our Customer Happiness team to ensure you are choosing the best products for your specific needs.
