The Benefits of Using Recycled Bottles

Numerous "recyclable" plastic bottles are frequently discarded in a way that renders them unfit for reuse. Many are thrown into landfills, where they leak dangerous chemicals into the soil that can reach the groundwater.

Our excellent friends at Visy provide recycled HDPE plastic bottles that are recyclable for most of our beauty products. Better yet, since they’re a local Melbourne-based manufacturer, we can reduce transport emissions inside the My Soda factory. Even the pallets they arrive on are made from the recycled HDPE plastic we use in our bottles, making the entire process, from manufacturing to its checkout at your local Woolworths supermarket, as sustainable as humanely possible. 

And since our beauty products are stored in warehouses and delivered straight to retailers from manufacturing facilities, we avoid unnecessary carbon emissions from transportation and delivery. 

Carbon Neutral Dreams

My Soda, along with our parent company Natures Organics and other sustainable beauty brands, are dreaming of carbon neutral future for our manufacturing. Our Ferntree Gully plant, located southeast of Melbourne, Victoria, at the foothills of the stunning Dandenong Ranges, is where we produce our goods on-site. 

We are powered by 5,000 roof-mounted solar panels, which has resulted in an annual reduction in carbon emissions of about 1,000 tonnes.

Plant-Derived Ingredients

We all know that it is nearly impossible to grow and harvest all of our ingredients in Australia due to its severe climate. It's also no secret that crop yields throughout the world have been impacted by climate change. My Soda ensures that those we collaborate with pay close attention to local supply as demand rises to prevent an ingredient shortage in a specific area. 

So that we can avoid harming the supply chain and the environment, crops are distributed throughout various places and allowed time to refill.

You can benefit from plant-based shampoo & conditioner by selecting My Soda:

  • Gentle on skin and hair follicles
  • Greywater-safe
  • Biodegradable
  • No harsh detergents
  • Strict No-Palm Oil policy

Most importantly, we do not include toxic chemicals that harm the environment, our hair or our body. Our shampoo, conditioners, body wash or treatments, and styling products contain zero parabens, SLES, propylene glycol, and other chemicals. Because every time you wash, we want to #kisstheplanet!

Cruelty-Free & Vegan

We never perform animal testing or use substances originating from animals because we love and appreciate our furry friends. Our rigorous requirements must also be met by our suppliers and business partners, which means every single one of our plant-based, naturally derived beauty products is cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

Refill Pouches

The best part about sustainable bathroom products from My Soda is our refillable pouches. We adhere to the circular reuse and recycling paradigm. Purchase any beauty products - shampoo, conditioner, body wash - then use our refill pouches for near-infinite refills. By buying My Soda products and refilling them, you're doing these small measures that enable us to reduce plastic waste by 85% with each refill purchase.

Check out our FAQ for more information about what to do with your refill pouches.

Shopping Local

Shopping locally has enormous advantages for our communities as well. In the wake of the pandemic, we can all give back and lessen our carbon footprint by boosting our local businesses. The entire suite of My Soda beauty products can be purchased at your local Woolworths store, enabling every Australian consumer to support local manufacturing.
