FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Hybrid Hippie is an alternative lifestyle brand that is legally incorporated in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Yes – 100%! At Hybrid Hippie, we love and care for all living beings – and do not endorse or use animal byproducts in any of our existing range of products.

We are committed to make sure all of our product packaging is 100% plastic-free; while we strive to use minimal packaging across all of our range, most of our packaging is made using recycled materials and printed on with soy-based inks.
We may have to use cardboard shipping boxes when delivering larger products or orders; and, when we ship orders internationally to make sure you receive our products as they should be. There may be times when we have to opt for the standard bioplastic mailer bags provided by our logistics partners for deliveries of certain products. This is something we are working on, alongside our logistics partners, to have replaced on a priority basis.

The silicone that goes into making each one of our Lids and Food Storage bags are 100% BPA and plastic-free. The premium food grade silicone that is used is either FDA or LFGB certified, and are designed to be extremely versatile and durable.
Silicone, being made primarily by heating sand, is a safer choice for you and the planet. Its properties including heat and cold resistance makes it the perfect alternative to the single-use plastic cling films and zipper bags.

We have always got your back! In case you have received a faulty product, drop us an email on contact@hybrid-hippie.com with details, and we will be more than happy to resolve this for you.

If you are returning an unsuitable item for a refund, you would need to send the item to our warehouse in Dubai using a tracked shipping method. We will refund the cost of the item only and not the original delivery cost.
Should you be returning a damaged or faulty item for a refund we will refund the cost of the item and shipping costs –  including the original shipping costs and the return shipping costs.

We currently work with multiple production units around the globe to manufacture and deliver high-quality products with sustainability at the center of every step. Our products and packaging are designed and conceptualized in Dubai, UAE – and, are manufactured by our production units across UAE, Vietnam, India, Nepal, China, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

Sustainable living at Hybrid Hippie does not end at just being eco-friendly and environmentally conscious – but, being and doing the best we can to ourselves as humans. We believe in sustainable practices across our supply chain – from sourcing of raw materials to the people who help us craft our products, and the shipping practice we adopt. All of our production units operate on renewable energy.

All carbon emissions that are caused during the shipping process are offset on a monthly basis. We, in fact, offset more carbon than that we leave behind.

While many of our products are bio-degradable, we don’t want to see you throw them away. Products like our bamboo toothbrush, reusable bamboo kitchen towels, ear swabs and a few others can be easily added to your home compost.


Some of our products, made from Stainless Steel and Silicone, are naturally not bio-degradable – but, could break down in a couple of decades. We have built them to be tough, so you can continue using them safely for as long as possible – and, when the time comes, they can be easily recycled.

We knew you would ask us this!
The answer is Yes. The species of bamboo that goes into our products is called Moso Bamboo. Bamboo, in general, is one of the fastest growing natural resources on Earth – and, is almost fully grown within an average of 3-4 months. Growing and harvesting bamboo also does not require using pesticides or other harmful chemicals.

The natural anti-microbial properties make it an excellent material for certain products. Finally – before you ask, Pandas do not rely on this specific species of bamboo due to its height.

We know the wait can be hard, so we do our best to have your order delivered to you at the soonest possible.
