Our products are formulated with certified organic ingredients (wherever possible)
This means that less pesticides and herbicides are being used on our earth, and more sustainable growing practices.
We package our products in easy to recycle materials
We choose aluminium as our primary packaging material as its the easiest material to recycle and light to transport (less carbon). We also offer complimentary recycling for all non-kerbside recycling packaging e.g. pumps, atomisers, droppers.
We take every effort to reduce plastic packaging
We are on a path to reducing our plastic packaging to as minimal as possible by 2023, including introducing more compostable options (super exciting - watch this space!)
We ship carbon neutral and with 100% recyclable or compostable shipping options
We ensure that every parcel that heads your way is sent 100% carbon neutral and in packaging that is either kerbside recyclable or compostable.

Recycling a single aluminium can could power a television for 3 hours. Our main packaging material is easy to recycle aluminium.
It is estimated that around 75% of all the aluminium ever produced is still in use today. This includes the aluminium we use for our packaging!
Multi-material plastic packaging is among the most difficult types of waste to recycle. We aim to use as little plastic as possible in our packaging and are continually working to further minimise our use of plastic.
