Looking after our environment
We recognise that our work may have a direct or indirect impact on the local, regional and global environment. We are committed to reducing any harm our activities may have on the environment and would wish to promote the understanding of sustainability in its broadest context.
Our ethical and environmental stance is to constantly internally audit our processes and procedures whilst looking for new ways in which we can reduce our impact on the environment, and where appropriate link and work with other like-minded organisations.
Our strategy will focus on:
- Reducing Waste
- Energy and Water saving
- Environmental Purchasing
- Repairing rather than throwing away
As this strategy becomes more established we aim to encourage our staff and customers to become responsible green citizens.
All Health Plus pots are made from recyclable PET, and if your local council offers the facility we would encourage you to recycle all your old pots. We are also investigating the possibility of using pots that are made from recycled PET, although currently this technology is in the early stages of development and we need to make sure that it is suitable for use when packing food products.
All the packaging that we use for sending your order to you is also recyclable.
Vegan Society Registered
All of our vegan products proudly bear the insignia of the world-renowned Vegan Society, because each of them has been registered with the Society before being made available for purchase.
For every ingredient that we use in a Vegan Society registered product, we have to declare to the Society that:
"the manufacture and development of the ingredient contained in the product put forward for registration with the Vegan Society does not and has not involved the use of any animal product, by-product or derivative and do not or have not involved testing of any sort (this includes testing for efficacy, toxicity, cosmetic purposes, etc) on animals conducted at the initiative of my company, or on its behalf or by parties over whom I have effective control."
