Why Zero Waste and Sustainability Matter
From the very beginning, Pit Liquor founders Jason and Erica Feucht have been passionate about sustainability. Locally sourced ingredients, glass bottles, recycling, and low carbon emissions have been part of Pit Liquor’s growth at every step.
Making an Impact
As a company, we see that our actions have larger ripples because of the scale of our impact. We want to do our part to make sure each of our choices makes the world a better, brighter place. We’re proud to say we’re carbon neutral, and taking big steps toward becoming carbon negative.
Us too. All Pit Liquor bottles, from rollers to sprays to refills, are glass bottles. Plastic is a terrible choice for our planet while glass is recyclable and can be broken down because it's made from silica and biodegrades.
You might have noticed that our caps are still plastic. Our co-founder Jason wants to find a way around the necessity of the plastic cap, and is taking steps toward that goal this year. It'll take time, but every Pit Liquor purchase supports that step.
Packaging For The Planet
We strive for sustainability from start to finish, including the packaging. We ship our bottles in fully recyclable packages so you aren't throwing a single piece in the trash to rot in a landfill forever. When you receive your PL goodies, you'll find them wrapped neatly in craft paper and nestled in biodegradable packing peanuts. These bio peanuts are made from natural, plant based starches that dissolve in water, so simply wash them down your sink!
Caring for our planet is more than just a fun idea. It's imperative for ensuring this place can take care of our children and their kids. Ready to join us? We thought so. Here are a few easy ways for your to get behind our sustainability goals...
3 Ways to Join PL’s Sustainability Pledge:
1. Buy a Refill Bottle
Purchasing a Refill of your favorite scent allows you to fill up your 50ml bottle SEVEN TIMES. Even better—your Refill bottle doesn’t just save the planet, it also saves you time and money. Last year Pit Liquor sold over 2,000 Refill bottles, saving 10.3 tons of CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere. That’s a reason to celebrate.
If you've been a customer for a while, send your used bottles back to us!
1. Gather 5 bottles from previous orders
2. Clean the bottles (a quick rinse will do!)
3. Send them to us (you pay shipping) and please enclose the email address and name you used on your orders so we can reach out with a discount code for your next order.
4. Once we receive your order, we’ll send you a code to use on a future order!
