At Saint Francis Place, we opt for organic, bio-dynamic, and/or wild-harvested products where possible to ensure the ingredients used are exposed to lower levels of toxic metals and chemical pesticides.
All products are cruelty free, which means we do not test on animals, and the brands we stock do not test on animals or source from suppliers who test on animals.
Any products containing palm oil or beeswax are ethically sourced or from sustainable suppliers.
We care about the environment as much as our customers. The packaging we use for in-store and online purchases will be from socially responsible or recycled sources or up-cycled and reused where possible:
Recycle Bag Program
Our voluntary ‘Recycle Bag Program’ in-store aims to reuse paper shopping bags, which cleverly include our branding to extend the life of bags that have already been produced with the Earth’s finite resources. Next time you purchase from us in-store, let us know if you're happy to use a 'Recycled Bag' and we'll happily package your new items in one of these special bags.
Alternatively, feel free to bring in paper bags that may be accumulating in your closet from previous purchases you have made to up-cycle and keep the program going. We'd love you to take part!
As a business, we make the effort not to purchase plastic shipping supplies as much as possible. However, we feel that it is best for our environment to reduce the waste of these materials by saving those that we receive from other sources. We hope that you appreciate our decision when we choose to reuse previously used shipping materials that are still in immaculate condition for online orders.
We are continuously striving to improve our impact on the environment to be in a more positive and productive direction. This includes curating a collection from brands who are equally as conscious about their impact, but also being able to help our customers along the way. We are currently working towards partnering with a recycling initiative to reduce the impact of waste from the products purchased past and present. We look forward to sharing this information with you soon.
