Our Commitment to Sustainability. 
With buzz about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch floating in the Pacific Ocean and an estimated 33 billion pounds of plastic entering our marine environment every year, we’ve all become a little more conscious about sustainability and the amount of plastic we use. Whether you’re a beauty enthusiast, a parent trying to make good decisions for their kiddos or an eco-warrior, chances are you have seen the initials PCR  on some of your packaging. But what is PCR and how does it fit into our Raw Sugar Clean For All mission? 
PCR stands for Post Consumer Recycled. Essentially, it is plastic that has been given a new lease on life — recycled after its initial product life cycle and made into a new product. According to some data, using PCR manufactured products reduces energy consumption by 79%. It could save more electricity than is consumed annually in all of Los Angeles and is equal to reducing enough greenhouse gas emissions as taking nearly a half a million cars off the road. 
Here at Raw Sugar Living, sustainability and environmental responsibility are part of everything we do. Clean For All is our mission, not just for what you put on your body, but for our planet too. Guided by our vision to create clean formulas, from products that nourish your body, mind and soul and nurture our planet, we've made a steadfast commitment to embrace post-consumer recycled plastic. By incorporating PCR plastic into our packaging, we're taking a vital step towards a greener future. Our signature eco-friendly white bottles are currently made from 30% Post Consumer Recycled plastic and we have a full commitment to 100% PCR by the year 2030. 
By choosing Raw Sugar, you're not just embracing a clean living brand; you're joining a movement. Each time you reach for our products, you're casting a vote for a greener and more sustainable future. Together we have the power to make conscious choices not just about feeling good and looking good, but about doing good too!
