- we planted 24,710 trees:
- 512 in 2018 in Hauts-de-France (Linselles, Bailleul and Béthune with Canopée Reforestation association)
- 5,000 in 2019 in New Aquitaine (Bonneuil-Matours with the Naudet nursery)
- 19,198 in 2020 in the Grand Est region (Dinteville with the Naudet nursery).
Even more in 2021!
- we are turning to green energies: the majority of our buildings are already supplied with green electricity from Enercoop
- our offices and warehouse are passive energy (triple glazing, adjustable solar shading, air exchange, etc.)
- we finance the installation of wind turbines and photovoltaic panels with Innovent, a company based in Villeneuve d'Ascq (North of France). Our contribution permits the production of more than 240,000 KWh of green electricity per year, more energy than our buildings consume: we have positive-energy headquarters, warehouse and Avril stores!
- we deliver the restocking of our Lille shops by bike via Coursiers de Flandres
- we turn off the lights in our shops in the evening
- all our Colissimo and Lettre Verte deliveries are CO² neutral thanks to La Poste group's carbon reduction and offset efforts (13 tonnes of CO² equivalent offset in 2020)
- We transport our pallets of goods in trucks running on natural gas (95% less CO² emissions)
Reduction of waste and wastage / recycling of packaging:
We have eliminated the plastic wrapping around accessories and products whenever possible (except for items requiring special protection against humidity or for hygienic reasons). We replaced this packaging with paper (body & hand soaps, etc.)
We are stopping the production of liquid hand soaps because we offer solid alternatives (body & hand soaps, cold soaps). However, we continue to sell our stocks until exhaustion.
We are working on the development of products in aluminum packaging, packaging that can be recycled many times over than plastic (a balm deodorant, shea butter will soon join the range)
We include recycled plastic in the packaging of our new products whenever possible (for product packaging as well as for accessories such as the pencil sharpener which will soon contain a share of recycled plastic)
We promote the reuse of packaging: it is possible to refill your shower gel in most of our stores. Two shampoos will soon be refillable in store.
We are working on the development of solid formulas because they avoid the transport of water compared to liquid formulas. We are also planning refills of these powdered products.
We would like to integrate multi-purpose products in our ranges (all in 1: blush / blush / contouring ...) of make-up-care products (lip oil) in order to limit the number of products purchased and avoid waste
We are looking to develop refillable makeup (cardboard box purchased once + refill cups in paper envelope)
We educate our employees about recycling and sorting packaging.
Non-marketable products (short expiration date, damaged packaging) are donated to associations.
CO² reduction / relocation:
We are trying to repatriate the manufacture to France (this is the case for our lipsticks which are now made in France instead of Italy) and we are working on the repatriation of other products, in particular accessories from Asia ( example: our tweezers are now made in France)
We are looking for solutions so that the delivery of our merchandise to our order preparation warehouse is done via trucks running on natural gas.
And many other advances: our product team is fully engaged on these topics!
- we only use kraft and packagings from previous deliveries as wedges
- we reuse products boxes to send orders
- we buy most of our computer equipment in refurbished
- we print cash receipts and credit cards only at the request of customers
- we do not offer checkout bags and only offer paper bags or fabric tote bags to buy
- we do not buy plastic water bottles
- we reduce our consumption of disposable paper towels with washable cloths and cloths
- we manufacture ourselves our cleaning products
- we sort our waste and get the paper back to paper
- we do not print any document to promote our brand (catalog, flyer ...)
- we do not manufacture samples
- we opened a bank account at the NEF, a social and solidarity finance bank. The money is only spent to finance ecological and social economy projects.
- we are patrons of Musée la Piscine in Roubaix, Opéra de Lille, Théatre du Nord, Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg, Opéra de Rennes, Le Quai theater in Angers. For these large performing arts institutions, we provide free Avril make-up used by performers on stage.
