Shampoo bars are helping the environment
Every concentrated GOOD CUBE bar replaces five 350ml plastic bottles. How? Because our shampoo bars condition as well as shampoo. GOOD CUBE are made with biodegradable ingredients and packaged in compostable materials, so our conditioning shampoo bars leave no trace (except, of course, for your clean, nourished and energised hair!).
Every 120g GOOD CUBE shampoo bar sold:
Prevents 4 plastic bottles from polluting our environment.
Funds the removal of 1 litre of plastic from our beaches and coastlines.
GOOD CUBE Partner with:
Sustainable Coastlines – a non-profit organisation that exists to clean up New Zealand’s coastline for the benefit of our precious sea birds, marine life and the enjoyment of all New Zealanders. Why shampoo bars? Because for every 120g GOOD CUBE bar sold, 33c goes to Sustainable Coastlines to help remove 1 litre of plastic from NZ beaches and shorelines. And that’s very good.
Total volume in litres of rubbish removed from the coast by our team since 2002.
