Eco Values and Sustainability

I am very conscious of the impact we have on the environment, so at home I've made some big (but very easy) changes at home - such as using Smol laundry tablets instead of washing liquid, fabric squares instead of kitchen roll and loofah scourers instead of sponges. So it would be pretty silly if I didn't make some eco friendly decisions in my business

So far, I've done the following things:

  • swapped plastic grip seal bags to biodegradable grip seal bags for taster bags
  • swapped from kraft bags to biodegradable kraft bags for larger bags. Take a look at my Blog to see see how to help these biodegrade 
  • offer a jar refilling if you drop your jar off to me to save on any packaging (and you save 30p per 100g you buy!) 
  • reuse packaging where I can to send items out to you. I was donated a lot of packaging material from my friend so all the tissue paper, address labels and circle brand labels, were all destined for the bin! ♻️
  • use paper tape to seal all my cardboard boxes, which means they can be recycled without the tape having to be removed 📦
  • plant 10 trees every month and an additional one for every order over £20 placed! You can click the link to see my virtual forest, and plant some trees of your own if you like! 🌱

I made a little video showing it what I do (it took me 3 hours to make, so I'm uploading it everywhere! 😅)

Being a small business and trying to reduce the impact on the environment is tough. Everything that's trying to help reduce single use plastic costs so much more, but I have really tried hard not to increase my prices, because I truly believe in Planet over Profit. I am constantly trying to improve the way I conduct business, so if you have seen something eco friendly that you think might be helpful, let me know 🌍
