Packaging is kind of a big deal at Zerra & Co.

Our mission is all about finding the intersection between sustainability and accessibility, so we want to make sure we get the best cosmetics in your hands with the least impact on the environment as possible.

As a company, we wanted to make sure that our products, packaging and the carbon emission from shipping online orders didn’t negatively impact the planet.⁠ With your help, we've made a huge impact this year!

As you know, Zerra & Co. is always (and we mean always) aiming to love your skin and love the planet. Being a company that primarily sells online, one thing we have had to deeply consider is our carbon emissions and how they affect the planet.

With that in mind, we decided Zerra & Co. would ship completely carbon neutral. And we are happy to report that we’ve stuck to it! Everything you order from us will be sent to you and any carbon emissions as a result of that shipping will be totally offset at no extra charge to you.

Pretty awesome, right?

We think so, but if you’re unfamiliar with carbon neutral shipping and wondering what it is and why we do it, we’ve got the lowdown for you.

As you know, sustainability is kind of a big deal over here at Zerra & Co. From our packaging, to our shipping practices, to our handcrafted products, our aim is to build a brand that is kind to your skin, kind to the animals, and kind to the planet.

With that in mind, we want to make sustainable gifting as simple and attainable as possible for you this year (and every year hereafter) so you can make your list, check it twice, and return to holiday bliss without all the last minute shopping, wrapping, and stressing.

It’s that time of year again, and we want to help it go as smoothly for you as possible! We can’t wait to see all the amazing ways you include Zerra & Co. in your sustainable holiday gifting this season, and we want to do everything we can to help you get your gifts into the hands of your loved ones on time.

With the holidays fast approaching, let this be the year you are totally ready and enjoying a season full of cheer instead of stressful last minute gift shopping. The only thing that could possibly make it better is a selection of unique and thoughtful gifts - thoughtful for the receiver and thoughtful for the planet.

Luckily for you, we’ve made your holiday shopping super simple with our low waste holiday shopping guide. It includes a handful of our very favorite sustainable gift options we know you and your loved ones will adore as much as we do.

We know that our products and packaging are a bit unconventional, but they're easy to use - we promise! Lowering waste in your beauty routine doesn't have to be hard and we put together the following videos on how to use some of our best selling zero waste products!
You can help keep waste out of landfill, and we are here to make it as easy as possible! As you may have seen, all of our packaging is created with sustainability at the forefront of our minds. Our containers are either 100% compostable, recyclable, or eligible for our container return program.
