You’ll find the answers to many of your questions about EarthRx and our products below. If not, contact us:  info@earthrx.com

 

How do we make the oceans better, one wash at a time?

Single-use biodegradable product packs and compostable packaging helps keep plastics out of the ocean. No plastic bottles, tubes or jugs that may find their way to the ocean. We are trying to reduce marine pollution by stopping it before it even has a chance to start.

 

How do I use the the EarthRx BodPods™ ?

  1. EarthRx Bodpod™ should be kept in a dry area, convenient to shower or bath. Remember, the individual EarthRxBodPods™ quickly dissolve in water, so direct contact with water is not a good idea until you are ready to use!
  2. Place the bodpod in a pouf, washcloth or just use your hands to create an amazingly rich lather that is great for your skin.
  3. When the bodpod is exposed to water, the water-soluble film dissolves in a matter of seconds releasing the body wash liquid to produce the rich lather.
  4. Enjoy the feeling of clean, silky soft skin!

 

Can I keep the BodPods™ pouch in the shower?

The bodpods will dissolve when exposed to water so for the best results, we suggest storing the product pouch outside of the shower. Bring one or more bodpods into the shower with when you are ready to wash.

 

How do I get the most lather out of each BodPod™?

Using a shower pouf or washcloth will generally produce the most luxurious lather, but you can also simply rub the bodpod in your hands.

 

How much bodywash does each BodPod™ contain?

Each single-use bodpod contains enough bodywash and produces enough rich lather for one wash. We took special care to portion out right amount of bodywash for a nourishing, moisturizing shower, while encouraging water conservation.  Your personal preferences may vary so feel free to use more bodpods.

 

What makes the BodPod™ film dissolve in water?

Our water-soluble films are made of PVOH which is colorless, odorless, biodegradable and non-toxic. It dissolves completely upon contact with water and naturally biodegrades.

PVOH is both safe and environmentally friendly because it does not persist in the environment, contaminate the recycling stream or contribute to micro-plastic pollution. It’s unique safety and environmental profile make it an ideal material to help make personal care products safer, simpler and more sustainable.

 

What should I do with the package when I’ve used up all of the BodPods™?

EarthRx™ packaging is certified as fully compostable and should be disposed of according to your local waste disposal guidelines.  Compostable packaging can be treated like food waste. It is designed to decompose as part of the organic waste stream and return to the environment as a natural fertilizer for soil and plants.

 

Is the package really compostable?

Yes, absolutely. The EarthRx™ pouch is certified compostable by the BPI and meets the international standards on compostable materials.  The pouch is printed with plant-based, biodegradable inks and has a fully compostable zip close. Within an industrial composting complex, it will disintegrate after 12 weeks and completely biodegrade after six months. These standards also ensure there are no hazardous consequences from the breakdown of fully compostable materials, assuring that all certified compostable materials are nourishing and perfectly safe for the cultivation of soil.

 

There are 2 types of composting:   Home and Industrial.  Do EarthRx bags compost in both conditions?

Our bags compost under both conditions, but timing may vary depending on heat and humidity.

 

What is the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

Biodegradation is a biological process where materials are metabolized into CO2, water and biomass. The process of biodegradation depends on the conditions of the specific environment and on the material and therefore, the rate of decomposition varies significantly.

Compostability describes material which biodegrades within a time frame of 180 days under composting conditions.

 

How does EarthRX fit in to a larger sustainable strategy?

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.

They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

EarthRx™ is trying to do our small part to support and help preserve our oceans and forests without compromising your personal care.
