When it comes to going green there are many small steps businesses can take that add up to big changes for all of us. Dancing Dingo has taken the following steps towards helping the community and the environment:
Dingo is a member in good standing with the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database by Environmental Working Group: Skin Deep pairs ingredients in more than 25,000 products against 50 definitive toxicity and regulatory databases, making it the largest integrated data resource of its kind. Dancing Dingo products are listed in the database with a very low hazard rating between 0-2. http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/
Dingo is a members in good standing with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics: a coalition working to protect your health by calling for the elimination of chemicals used in cosmetics that are linked to cancer, cause birth defects or other health problems. By signing, we pledge not to use chemicals that are known or strongly suspected of causing cancer, mutation or birth defects in our body products. http://www.safecosmetics.org/
We are members of PETAs Caring Consumer Project and have agreed never to do product testing on animals, or buy ingredients from suppliers known to conduct animal testing.
We use minimal packaging - less to produce and throw away.
We sell many of our products in bulk to save on packaging and shipping.
Concentrated products: a little goes a long way
We use PET bottles, the easiest plastic for consumers to recycle
Our soaps and other products are 100% biodegradable, which makes them earth friendly as well as skin friendly.
Our server, Dream Host, is carbon neutral. They purchase renewable energy credits and carbon credits to offset the pollutants that are created as a result of running their business.
We support several local charities with donations and assistance.
We believe that you have a fundamental right to know exactly what is contained in the products you are buying and therefore give full ingredient disclosure on all of our products.
Fact: While the body's digestive system is actually designed to filter out impurities, the skin, as the body's largest organ, absorbs 60% of what is put on it directly into the bloodstream. (Source: Good Housekeeping Institute)
