Newell respects your world

Commited to the environment

ocean friendly

Sustainability and the zero-waste philosophy are becoming increasingly important in society and Newell is aware of this.

We want to contribute as much as possible to the improvement of processes, in all stages of the manufacture and distribution of our products, always thinking about reducing the ecological footprint and caring for and respecting the environment.

Eco-friendly products

ingredientes de origen vegetal
  • Eco-friendly formulations
  • Eco-friendly packaging
  • Eco-friendly labels
  • Eco-friendly bottles

At Newell, we are committed to ingredients and manufacturing processes that respect the environment to offer you sustainable care. Whenever possible, we use organic, natural, sustainable, and biodegradable ingredients in our formulas.

  • Sustainable ingredients:
    • IR3535, the main active ingredient in Newell repellents, non-toxic to aquatic organisms, rapidly biodegradable
    • 100% biodegradable vegetal-based fatty acids
  • Natural ingredients:
    • Citriodiol®, produced from the oil of the Eucalyptus Citriodora tree, located in sustainable plantations with ECOCERT certificate
    • Oatmeal amino acids
  • Organic ingredients:
    • Organic Tea Tree Oil, used as a repellent against lice
    • Organic Java Citronella, natural ingredient with insect repellent properties

We apply eco-design criteria to minimize the environmental impact of those factors that are considered most relevant, such as CO2 emissions.

We use vegetable inks whenever possible and our packaging is FSC certified. The FSC Principles and Criteria describe the essential elements or standards of environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable forest management.

Our labels are made from a recycled PET film with a thickness below the standard (70% less plastic) that is manufactured from consumer waste, favoring a circular economy and reducing the carbon footprint by 70%, in comparison to non-recycled material labels.

We use 100% recyclable PET, 100% recyclable HDPE or 100% R-PET (100% recycled PET) bottles, wherever possible, made from waste materials. R-PET bottles are slightly different in color from regular PET bottles.

In 2014, more than 57% of PET bottles had already been recycled through different processes.
