The personal hygiene company is reducing plastic waste by providing shoppers with refillable applicators and containers for everyday products like deodorant and shampoo

Personal care and hygiene company Humankind is on a mission to reduce single-use plastics in consumer goods. Accordingly, the products sold by Humankind have packaging and containers that are durable and reusable.

The first time a Humankind customer orders from the company, the product will arrive in its reusable plastic container. Each subsequent order will deliver the product in just a paper pod, letting consumers put the product into the original reusable holder. Humankind also offers some products in a form that does not require plastic packaging of any kind, such as tablet mouthwash and shampoo bars.

Currently, Humankind only offers three products—shampoo, mouthwash and deodorant—but plans to expand its range. In addition to providing people with sustainable personal care products, Humankind will also donate $1 to ocean cleanup efforts for each first-time purchase.
