Sustainability at Urban Spa
We are sustainable in our ingredients, materials, and packaging. We review all of our collections with the goal of removing plastic from our packaging whenever possible while delivering the perfect products you love. In 2019, we created a whole new look for our Lovely Lavender Eye Mask. We’ve ditched the plastic sleeve and designed a beautiful paper box (recyclable). We also made changes for 7 more of our best-selling spa products, including the Classic Nail Brush, the Serious Sisal Buffer, The Only Headband, and more.
Giving at Urban Spa
Urban Spa Cares is our ongoing commitment to donate 10% of profits to causes we champion. Our giving partnership with Asia’s Hope SEA Ministry empowers women and children who would otherwise be at risk of exploitation in Thailand. We donate to the Canadian Women’s Foundation to support female economic empowerment, and are proud activators in the radical generosity movement with SheEO, helping fund women-owned businesses in Canada.
We focus on social justice issues, not just charity. We volunteer both locally and globally, including humanitarian trips with Homes for Hope to support families living with housing insecurity in the Global South. Our in-kind program connects us to community initiatives, bringing our sustainable brand into countless lives through product donations.
Urban Spa has earned B Corp Certification from the nonprofit B Lab, becoming one of 300 companies in Canada to certify as a B Corp. The Certification process requires a comprehensive review of a business's social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. It is based on a vision of creating a community of for-profit companies committed to redefining success in business.
About Urban Spa
Urban Spa’s products with purpose bring beauty rituals into our daily lives and improve our impact on the planet. Over a decade ago, our original products were designed to promote skin exfoliation for an iconic natural brand, Burt’s Bees. In 2015, Urban Spa spun off into its own company, rebranded, and added makeup brushes to our spa tools offering. We’ve always taken pride in our business model of sustainability, rooted in our desire to design products that create positive change. Better beauty, for a better planet.
