We get it, "sustainability" is the latest buzzword everyone's throwing around these days. But as a small business, we know that our actions have a bigger impact on the environment than just one person's. That's why we're doing our part to minimize the negative effects our commerce can have on the planet, with the goal of protecting the natural resources and wild spaces we all enjoy.

Sourcing Sustainable and Ethical Ingredients

At The Mod Cabin, we believe in using natural plant-based ingredients in our products as a way of striving towards sustainability. By sourcing ingredients from nature, we can create effective, safe, and responsible products that are free from harmful chemicals, parabens, and sulfates. However, we recognize that not all natural ingredients are good for you or good for the eco-systems they're harvested from. Therefore, we carefully select ingredients that are both sustainable and ethical, ensuring that our products are not only good for you but also have minimal impact on the environment.

Handcrafted Manufacturing

We also use small tools and make things by hand, which reduces energy usage and waste. By using traditional methods, we not only save energy but also ensure that every product we create is made with care and attention to detail. And let's be honest, there's something really rewarding about working with your hands.

Sustainable Packaging

We understand that packaging is a significant contributor to waste, and any packaging we use has an impact on the environment. The sustainability of a material depends on multiple factors such as the raw materials used to produce it, its recyclability rate, and the manufacturing process. These are all points we consider when we choose our packaging and packing materials. That's why we opt for glass, aluminum, and paper packaging and packing materials. These materials are easily recyclable, reusable, and biodegradable, making them more environmentally friendly options than traditional plastic packaging.

Plastic waste is a major global problem, with an estimated 8.3 billion tons of plastic produced since the 1950s and only a small percentage (about 9%) being recycled. The production and disposal of plastic packaging have a detrimental impact on the environment, contributing to pollution and endangering wildlife. It makes common sense to us that if you're going to invest in natural healthy grooming products, then we should offer them to you in packaging that will minimize our impact on the outdoor spaces we all enjoy.

At The Mod Cabin, we're proud to offer natural, effective grooming products that are crafted with care and integrity. Our commitment to these kinds of common sense initiatives means that you can feel good about using products that not only nourish your skin and hair but also have minimal impact on the environment. Join us in our mission to protect the wild places we love and enjoy products that are as rugged and adventurous as you are.
