We’ve since re-branded & re-focused. The “Coco” means “Conscious Consumer”.
This is a direct representation of how we are trying to change our lives ourselves. We now take responsibility for any waste we produce & of course we try to minimise as waste as much as possible. This is something we weren’t doing before because we simply did not have the awareness. We are now trying to make up for it & we ask for your support in this too.
We’ve been obsessed with educating ourselves on the matter as well as ensuring that our products and packaging are either 100% recyclable or compostable. This also extends to our LiveCoco dog grooming products.
As part of our research, we found out that only 9% of plastic waste is recycled…so 91% ends up in landfills and our oceans (possibly in a whale’s stomach or choking a turtle!). Naturally, we found this absolutely shocking. Therefore, we decided that we had to know that at the very least, our products did not contribute to this 91% of non-recycled plastic.
In order to guarantee that our products are actually recycled, we’ve created our own closed-loop recycling system. So, our used products & packaging can be sent back to us for recycling. We understand that this is not the perfect solution but to be honest, it is better than nothing. We are not stopping at this solution however, we are always working on ways to make our products and operations, including our LiveCoco dog grooming products, more eco-friendly so please bear with us; but as usual, please do email us with our suggestions. Our greatest teachers have always been our customers since we started and we believe that with you is where the greatest knowledge lies.
We will now broaden our range to products for the Conscious Consumer. We have so much for you in the pipeline, so watch this space!
