What makes VeganTan so sustainable?

All of VeganTan’s goods are packaged in sugar polymer and recycled ocean plastic, and the company has been Plastic Negative since its inception. VeganTan gives a portion of every bottle sale to help eliminate single-use plastic from the environment and promote fair pay for trash workers.

Also working with Guaranteed Irish, VeganTan supports local, Irish jobs and the Irish economy.
