M·Y·O Cosmetic Cases Inc. invested in planting an acre of trees offsetting over 5100 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions over 10 years. The World Tree Program plants and grows Empress Splendor trees — which absorb 11 times more carbon than any other tree — through a network of experienced farmers, generating income for them and offsetting millions of tons of carbon in the process.
MYO uses an electric car for transportation! Reducing harmful air pollution from exhaust emissions and increasing health benefits – better air quality will lead to less health problems. Reduced Noise Pollution - Electric Vehicles are also quieter than petrol/diesel vehicles, which means less noise pollution.
Once our case reaches the end of its lifespan, we are committed to taking our ‘Ready to Recycle’ cases back and reusing the material to make new M·Y·O Cosmetic Cases. Working with our manufacturer, its components are cleaned, heated and remolded. Any parts of the case that do not meet the ‘mold again’ criteria, will be responsibly recycled.
Always mindful of our carbon footprint, 90% of our sourcing and manufacturing is done within North America. We work with a manufacturer in Vancouver, Canada that is certified for manufacturing medical materials. They have environmentally responsible systems in place that include a recycling program for all unused materials, and a water filtration system that reuses water during the manufacturing process.
While introducing a minimal makeup philosophy to my then teenage daughters, I was inspired to want a more simplified makeup routine for myself and reduce the packaging and unused cosmetics, in my overflowing makeup drawer and makeup bag. This started me on a path that led me to collaborate with the experts of the industry, Professional Makeup Artists, and eco-minded young people to innovate a customizable all inclusive refill reuse makeup system.. It had to be a case that had solid benefits for both professional makeup artists and the eco-minded everyday consumer - supporting a minimalistic approach to makeup while accommodating multiple make-up types. With a litany of innovations, our case offers the flexibility to use at home, on the go or on-set/#bts for pros! Making Makeup life easier!
