Siita, the world’s first zero-waste company


Following the announcement covered by Korea Herald, South Korean vegan cosmetics brand Siita said Thursday (Mar 2nd) that it has been recognized as one of the first zero waste companies globally by a sustainable fashion and lifestyle platform affiliated with the United Nations.

The Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network is an UN-hosted online platform for industry stakeholders, NGOs, and governments to seek collaborations and report progress for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Siita was introduced as one of the model cases that have introduced eco-friendly innovations in the fashion and lifestyle sector.

“Siita is the only company in the world that decomposes products made of plastic. All Siita products are fully decomposed and return to nature,” the platform said.

This is the first time that a South Korean company has won recognition from the platform, Siita said.

The platform especially highlighted Siita’s own plastic decomposition system.

The company collects all product containers that are made of biodegradable plastic to make them into organic compost.

Compared to existing facilities using microorganisms, the technology lowers the costs, while the processing period which usually takes about six months is also cut in half.

The organic compost is supplied to neighboring farmhouses, a win-win between the company and the local community.

Bloomberg and IBTimes described Siita’s technology as having “changed the paradigm for solving environmental problems.” Vogue even referred to the company as “the Apple of cosmetics.”

“It is a great honor to be named as a model case for sustainability,” said a Siita official. “We will continue to offer eco-friendly solutions and to invest in sustainability under our goal of ‘keeping Earth alive.'”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
