SUSTAINABILITY

Small Logo_bw.jpg

Terra Stoma is a proud member of Small Business for Big Change (SBBC), a growing collective of small business owners who are:

  • Dedicated to making your dollar count towards real change.

  • Passionate about sustainable and Earth-minded products.

  • Committed to eco-responsible business practices and approaches.

We utilize simple & customizable Pay Back to the Planet (P2P) Programs that focus on:

  • Reducing waste

  • Reusing packaging

  • Donating money to organizations actively working to reverse the damage done by decades of plastic disposal. 

SBBC believes that working together towards a unified goal is the best way to make an impact - for the organizations we partner with, as well as for each other. Through this exchange of ideas and experience, we encourage each other's development and the continued innovation of sustainability practices. 

Our P2P Programs

PLASTIC TAX

While most of our product packaging comes in recyclable glass or biodegradable "eco-tubes", there are still some items that come packaged in plastic tubes. 

These items are subject to a "Plastic Tax", which means that a portion of their sales are donated annually to a list of organizations making the world a better place. 

Our ultimate goal is to find a plastic-free solution for these products, however until that time we hope you will select an organization that speaks to you!

  • All padded mailers are biodegradable and our cardboard boxes are made from 100% recycled material and post-consumer waste.

  • The paper tape used to seal them is both biodegradable and recyclable.

  • All packing paper has been upcycled from local businesses and saved for reuse.

  • All Thank You notes are printed on recycled paper. 

  • All product labels are made from renewable sugarcane crops and are 100% biodegradable.

  • Any "plastic" bag you receive (ex. Eye Potion Minis) is actually a wood-cellulose derived bioplastic and is fully compostable.
