We are rethinking and creating a new relationship with plastic
Plastic has massively driven human progress. The universally applicable material is now indispensable and is important in many areas.
Nevertheless: Plastic, as we have used it in recent years, is a danger for the future. Its stability and durability are both a blessing and a curse.
Rethinking is more important now than ever before. This is what drives us at puremetics.
Chris (CEO & CO-FOUNDER)
We find future-oriented alternatives
I am firmly convinced that we humans can solve this problem together and ensure that the world will still be this wonderful blue planet in a million years.
And that’s what we do at puremetics. We eliminate the need for plastic in the bathroom and find better solutions for you and the environment.
We have it in our hands
To understand why a change in thinking is so important for the continued existence of the world as we know it, we would like to present you with some important facts about plastic.
over 2 million tons of plastic waste in the oceans!
In the North Pacific, an island larger than the United States has already formed out of this garbage!
To date, humanity has produced over 6.9 billion pieces of plastic , only 9% of which has ever been recycled , 12% incinerated and 79% ended up in landfill or the environment!
And the plastic production keeps increasing! In 1950, 2.1 million tons of plastic were produced annually, today it is over 406 million tons. Yearly!
More than half of this was only used once for product packaging and was not recycled. That corresponds to more than 200 million tons of plastic waste every year, as much as 90,000 elephants - twice as much as exist in the wild.
PLASTIC BURNS THE ENVIRONMENT FROM 450 YEARS TO "EVER"
Plastic made from petroleum does not decompose or only decomposes very slowly. Rather, it breaks down into smaller and smaller particles, the so-called microplastics .
The burden on the environment is enormous. 90% of all seabirds carry plastic. Millions of animals die every year from our garbage. Entire cultures and reefs are perishing. A dramatic cycle caused by humans. And soon it will be the people who will suffer from these secondary reactions.
TO SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT AND THEREFORE OUR FUTURE!
We solve the plastic and toxins problem in the cosmetics industry with our sustainable beauty alternatives that offer everyone the opportunity to enjoy high-quality cosmetics while saving the world.
Our entire range is plastic-free! From the formulation to the packaging and shipping. We have invested a lot of love and time into this because our vision requires determination and perseverance.
We can't stick to conventional ways, we have to find new ones. And that is our motivation.
EVERY PUREMETICS ORDER
PROTECTS THE WORLD'S SEA FROM A WHOLE KILO OF PLASTIC WASTE!
Plastic-free products and plastic-free shipping are not enough for us; we also want to help protect our oceans from the flood of other people's plastic.
With every order from puremetics we support Cleanhub and thus recover a whole kilo of plastic waste from coastal regions.
We create environmentally friendly solutions
Plastic is certainly very important in many areas such as medical care and can no longer be imagined without it.
However, we need to fundamentally change our relationship with this material: use it sparingly. Recycle. And ask ourselves every day whether we can replace plastic in our lives with more environmentally friendly solutions.
Every day we develop new alternatives for you and our environment that work just as well as plastic and are sustainable.
In this way we would like to make our contribution to an environmentally friendly future and have a positive influence on the future course of the world.
We need your support for this mission
LET'S TAKE IT TOGETHER and turn the tide for the better
Starting today, choose sustainable cosmetics that are good for you and your environment. We offer you eco-friendly beauty alternatives with high-quality ingredients that you will love.
