our Return & Earn Program

Our Return and Earn Program has been made to encourage repurposing and recycling resources, as well as supporting a local charity that needs our help. For each bottle you return to us, we’ll donate $1 directly to the Victorian Dog Rescue & Resource Group Inc (VicDRG), to raise funds for animals in need.

Who are the Victorian Dog Rescue & Resource Group Inc (VicDRG)?
The Victorian Dog Rescue Australia support and rehome animals in need. It is a not for profit organisation and registered charity entirely run by volunteers whose goal is to stop the killing in pounds and shelters, to help companion animals in need in the community, and to promote responsible pet ownership.
You can find out more about the organisation here:

What can I donate?
Any empty bottle or jar recieved from an Amber Botanics order can be returned to us as part of the program. 1 bottle = $1.

Where does my bottle go?
We hate waste! As an attempt to give resources a second life, each bottle is cleaned, the label removed and the bottle repurposed around the Amber Botanics household - once they've reached the end of their life, the bottle or jar is then recycled properly through our local council.

What else can I do to help?
If you're not ready to donate your bottle or are out of our local area,
you can still play a part in changing the future of pet ownership and animal shelters.
There are 3 things you can do to help:

  1. Donate directly to the charity
  2. Adopt a cat or dog
  3. Become a foster carer

We hope at the very least, that you recycle your bottles mindfully, and if in doubt, get in contact about the best ways to recycle bottles or order packaging.

  • Aussie Made & Owned

    We are proud to be running an Aussie family business, handcrafting products in small batches.

    Locally Sourced
    We source ingredients and packaging locally and ethically. We are strong believers in supporting small local businesses, just like us.

  • No Hidden Ingredients

    All Natural
    With natural products that work as well as ours, there is no need to hide.

    Low Toxins
    We make our products with minimal preservatives. In rare circumstances where water content can grow bacteria, we use the highest grade, cleanest preservatives possible.

  • Sustainable Packaging

    Our Bottles
    We use recycable glass, and where it is not practical, we substitutate this for HDPE, PET or PP plastics.

    Your Orders
    We always repurpose packing materials and use compostable mailing bags where possible. Opt in for recycled boxes, or a shiny new cardboard box that can be recycled.
