VOYA Has Teamed Up With Plastic Bank To Combat Plastic Waste
With a heritage in seaweed bathing (a tradition that is 300+ years old), VOYA makes organic skincare products + spa treatments that are sustainable + effective.
Since launching in 2006, the brand’s Founders Mark and Kira Walton have continued on with the belief that “there must be a better way.” In other words, VOYA is continuously seeking to improve its eco-efforts and sustainability practices.
Prior to launching the business, Mark and Kira Walton worked corporate careers in Dublin, before trading them in for a quieter pace of life in Sligo on the West Coast of Ireland.
VOYA has evolved from the widely-acclaimed family-run seaweed baths in Strandhill, Co. Sligo (which first opened in 1912). The Walton family combined its knowledge of the therapeutic properties of its hand-picked, wild seaweed – with the expertise of natural cosmetic scientists, marine biologists, and dermatologists – to form VOYA in 2006.
Harnessing the unique restorative, healing, and anti-ageing properties of seaweed – blended with the purest active organic ingredients and essential oils into exceptional skincare and body-care products that are rich in antioxidants, the Walton Family has launched VOYA into 46 countries.
The brand’s latest partnership with Plastic Bank – is a fantastic addition to its existing relationships – including sustainable seaweed harvesting and packaging, and partnerships with the Soil Association, the World Land Trust, and Seal Rescue Ireland. As part of its Ocean Steward commitments with Plastic Bank, over the next two years, VOYA has pledged to stop the equivalent of more than two million single-use plastic bottles from entering the ocean.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Plastic Bank. They are globally recognised as leaders and innovators in plastic recycling, and we hope to make a measurable environmental and social difference through our partnership with them,” said VOYA’s Managing Director, Mark Walton.
