We use aluminum jars because we absolutely wanted packaging for the Happinesz deodorant that is durable, not using a lot of energy to transport (light weight!!) and can be recycled and will not end up in our blood stream.
So plastics were out of the question and also other bulky (bamboo, wood) or heavy (glass) packing material. Also we wanted something beautiful, elegant, easy to carry and small for in our handbags or pockets.
By buying a Happinesz deodorant you avoid to buy a plastic deodorant container.
If you like to know more about the plastic soup you can find more on the Plastic Ocean Website .
