Brand Sustainability Report
Why We Chose to Partner with Them
Apothékary’s mission to help people find natural remedies to their issues without resorting to a “pharmaceutical first” solution is one that we completely support. As well, their list of ingredients are from well known sustainable plants. Additionally, the fact that their products ship in glass bottles, which are easy to recycle, points to their concern to operate in a sustainable manner.
Unfortunately, while the company makes many claims towards sustainability (fair trade, sustainably sourced, etc.), there is no clear evidence of validation of these claims via any certifications from recognized 3rd parties. This raises the serious concern of greenwashing.
We have reached out to Apothékary for further documentation in order to validate their claims. If we receive anything from them, we will update our review accordingly. In the meantime, we would say that they look like they are doing the right things, but that we are cynical enough to require more evidence.
