One of Rumpl’s core values is to “look to the future responsibly”, and consider that value in every business decision they make. All Rumpl products are made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials, and the company recycles over 5 million discarded plastic bottles through their supply chain each year.
Rumpl does good by being a member of 1% For the Planet, which means they donate 1% of all revenue to environmental non-profits. Rumpl is also a certified Climate Neutral brand, meaning that each year they offset 100% of their carbon footprint by purchasing offset credits. And to top it all off, Rump became a B Corporation in March 2021. Talk about a brand that does good!
