The two companies share similar commitments toward respecting the planet and its resources by providing sustainable products that allow eco friendly consumers to feel good about their purchases while looking good as well. “The Freedom of Animals mission to provide distinct and purposeful designs that comply with ethical practices is a direct reflection of John Masters Organics desire to create a luxury beauty line that treats the earth with respect,” says John Masters, Founder of John Masters Organics. “We are thrilled to offer these luxury holiday gifts that hold true to our commitment that caring about yourself and caring about the earth are not mutually exclusive.”
John Masters Organics has a simple and clean approach to producing and sourcing their products--partnering with local farmers with a proven history of ethically harvesting ingredients. None of their products contain artificial colors or fragrances, and every aspect of packaging involves only eco-friendly practices, like using minimal amount of ink and printing on 100% recycled unbleached paper.
And in partnering with the luxury beauty line, Morgan Bogle, Co-Founder and Designer of Freedom of Animals, said that she "wanted to design something organic that both pulled from our love of animals and John Masters Organic's love of botanicals. I felt the two married well and having the elephant emerge from the plants seemed to be a strong message. During a time of holidays with giving and receiving, we both wanted to offer a lovely gift set that is both organic and consciously made.” She went on to say, "We have the same approach to business and ethics, and I am absolutely in love with all their products!”
Freedom of Animals was founded in 2013 with a mission to provide sustainable, cruelty-free luxury bags without compromising on style, sophistication and versatility. Their sleek and purposeful designs comply with ethical practices, providing an eco-friendly choice in the luxury accessories market. They use only high quality fabrics and materials that are comprised of post-consumer plastic (like water bottles), organic cottons and low chemical hardware. Even their bags' rich colors are achieved by using vegetable-based dyes that are all recycled.
Now that's something you can feel good about giving to anyone, eco conscious or not.
