"What engaging me to commence with this due to a passion to understand the relationship among daily products that we have been using and the ultimate impacts to our health and the environment."
Ruby spans more than a decade working in environmental and sustainability commercial development, specialising in commercial retail design, materials research and management.
As more you in touch with the industry and the more you realise how much waste we are producing every day, how many unfair trades happening in the market, how many chemicals in the products that we use, not only daily products, but we are talking about materials inclusive of the materials that build your house. No.2 Organics was therefore born as an ethical brand with the consciousness of ecological and social sustainability.
“There are alternatives nowadays that are cheaper, easier but synthetic to fulfil our needs, however, when we choose toxic and chemical based products, they go through the water system and unfortunately some of the toxic and chemical can never be filtered and it becomes water pollution. The effects of this pollution can damage life in the ocean and freshwater, which continues up the global food chain. We are exposed to high levels of many toxicants through foods, health problems include skin damage, problems with the circulatory system, and an increased risk of cancer."
We support formulations are biodegradable and grey water safe. You will feel confident that what you’re using is not going to damage our rivers, animals and plant life once it heads down the drain. The products that we selected are grey water safe because of the gentle, plant-based nature of products, water waste generated after use of products will not harm or cause build up on your plants and gardens.
No.2 stands for ecological balance, one’s inner balance, and harmony between humans and their surroundings. She believes ecologically unethical choices eventually come back to us in the form of polluted food and water.
We educate our customers of the origin and how our products being made. We work with brands who use better materials (ingredients), improved manufacturing processes and sustainable practice. Our brands show a concerted effort to do things differently and to act more consciously. We choose brands that made beautiful, elegant and contemporary packaging.
No.2 wishes to enhance public awareness of choosing products in a sustainable way, to our body, the environment and our next generation. They believe that quality natural products should be available to everyone and therefore No.2 Organics is established as a place housing only the ethical, ecologically-friendly but affordable beauty & daily alternatives for people.
