Commitment to Sustainability
At EMME, we set out to bring authentic Asian scents and flavors to the mainstream home fragrance industry. As a company in today’s world, we have a responsibility to do so in the most environmentally conscious way possible- sharing our culture and experiences as Asian Americans means nothing if we choose to destroy our home on this planet in the process.
Here are some steps we have taken to be more sustainable:
- We prioritize environmental resource reduction wherever it is possible within our own facilities. Our power in both our manufacturing facility and offices is charged to all businesses at a flat rate- we practice resource reduction because it’s the right thing to do, not because of a financial incentive. We actively encourage our neighbors to do the same!
- We love the idea of circularity, so we allocate time within our work day for recycling- at the end of every shift, we double check to ensure that every item that is being discarded is recycled if possible. We know that our customers are thinking the same way, so every component of our shipping process and packaging are completely recyclable- our packing peanuts are actually fully biodegradable! Our candle vessels (both glass and tins) are reusable- check out our social media for ways to clean out your candle once you’ve finished burning it.
- We pride ourselves in only working with suppliers who pay their employees a fair wage! With the disparity of Asian people across the world being paid less than a living wage for long hours of manual labor, we’re proud to support suppliers who choose to be different and prioritize humanity over profits.
While we take our steps toward sustainability seriously, we know there is always more that can be done- our commitment to our customers and to our fellow humans is to keep prioritizing ways that we can minimize our footprint, to continue to adapt, and to keep learning how we can be better.
With love- your founders,
