No waste "Sqround" Bottle? & Four Reasons We Chose to Use Them in our Hair Care
Sqround - It’s not exactly a square. And it’s not exactly round. Ok, now that you know what sqround is (sorta), I’m sure you’re wondering what the benefits are and why Jill Turnbull decided to package her hair care in these specific shapes?
No waste packaging
NO WASTE in manufacturing - There are always leftover materials with cylindrical bottles. Think about baking cookies; if you stamp your circles, there will always be leftover dough, whereas if you make them square, there is little to no surplus. Limiting the waste, we produce played a large part in choosing the bottle shape. In the beauty industry, there is an abundance of waste, so we made sure to be as eco-conscious as possible when designing our packaging.
A sqround bottle won't roll, and it's easier to hold. I know this reason is pretty self-explanatory, but super convenient! If you drop the bottle or it falls over in the shower, it won't roll away! No Waste!
These bottles are designed to look great in your bathroom, they line up easily and snugly on your shower shelf, and they take up less space. The rounded edge adds an easy-to-hold grip; whether in the shower or unboxing, they won’t slip away. No Waste!
It was essential to limit our waste, so we considered how to save space when packaging these bottles when you head off on vacation. With so much travel, and elements like chlorine, sun, and heat damage, I often find my hair in desperate need of some love and attention – so I usually pack them in the Cotton Sac they came in to avoid bursting, spilling, or leakage. Using a sqround bottle, you can stack the bottles on top of each other or have them lay next to each other in your suitcase for check-in. Looking after your hair as you travel the world is integral; you don’t want to undo all your good work from the rest of the year by leaving your products at home and skipping proper hair maintenance. No Waste!

One of our core values at Jill Turnbull Beauty is that we make hair care, skincare, and makeup products sustainably with ocean-safe ingredients and are always cruelty-free.
OUR CLEAN PROMISE - the beauty industry has a significant (and frightening) impact on the environment . . . marine environment in particular.
We have created plant-based, multi-use products, no waste, recycled, recyclable, or reusable packaging, all to work towards a bluer future.
We exclude potentially harmful ingredients; it’s easy to find alternatives that are shown to be less likely to irritate sensitivities.
Our products are produced and packaged to coexist harmoniously with our pledge to sustainable beauty and are BPA-free, with no waste, recycled, recyclable, and reusable after use.
Each bottle, jar, and tube is made of a most recyclable form of plastic PET, designed to last up to 2 years, allowing for multiple refills and with no waste.
As we know, glass is unsafe to use in the shower, so we offer resilient packaging and encourage refilling it once empty for no waste.
We work hard to ensure these materials are directly tied to upcycling efforts to reduce plastic waste. We skipped out on outer cardboard boxes; every piece of printed material, including the box your products arrive in, is produced from recycled materials.

Our products are cruelty-free, and we're working with the Humane Society of the United States to end animal testing for cosmetics.
