We are carbon neutral.

It is not enough to just stand back. We commit to being carbon neutral across our business.

Our carbon neutral commitments

Reduce.

We commit to work to continually reduce our carbon emissions.

We choose our partners carefully and will work with our supply chain to carry on improving. Where we can take action to reduce our footprint, we will.

Offset.

For emissions we cannot eliminate, we commit to offset through Gold Standard carbon credits.

These pay for amazing projects that remove or reduce carbon dioxide from the environment.

Whole business.

We commit to being carbon neutral across each part of our business.

Manufacturing our skincare drops, all packaging, fulfilment, and shipping: we will ensure our (and your) carbon footprint is zero.

More about being carbon neutral...

  • What does being "carbon neutral" mean?
  • How do we make sure we're carbon neutral?
  • What are carbon credits?
  • What projects will we support?

Being “carbon neutral” means that the amount of carbon dioxide produced (from doing things like burning fossil fuels) is equal to or less than the amount of carbon dioxide being captured or taken away from the environment.

We care about the amount of carbon dioxide emitted because it (along with other greenhouse gasses) traps the sun's radiation inside the earth's atmosphere, causing earth to heat up.

It’s tough to reduce carbon emissions to zero - just heating and lighting an office results in emissions. This means however hard we try, we have a carbon footprint. To neutralise this footprint, we will purchase Gold Standard carbon credits).

We believe in being carbon neutral across every area of our business that we are able to. 

This means we measure and add up the carbon dioxide produced across: the manufacturing process, the packaging, supply chain shipping, running an office, employee commuting, and shipping you your product. It gets nitty gritty but we think it’s worth it.

You'll see the carbon footprint of the raw materials isn't listed here (it's the only thing not included). We want to, but right now we can't accurately measure it due to the lack of data available from our supplies. This is something we'll continually try and improve upon.

Every year we’ll make this data public, so you can see exactly how we’re doing.

Carbon credits are special instruments that can be purchased.

The cost of them represents the amount it takes to reduce or remove carbon dioxide from the environment.

The money from carbon credits is used to support projects which reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the environment - like planting trees (scientists call this carbon sequestration) - or decrease the amount of carbon dioxide that gets produced - for example, providing more fuel efficient cookers for families in the developing world, or investing in new forms of energy like solar power.

We only support Gold Standard certified projects.

It's actually quite tricky to quantify how much good carbon reduction or removal projects really do.

Gold Standard projects have been through rigorous processes for quantifying their effectiveness.

To be Gold Standard, the project must also take into account the wider impacts, like ecological benefits, support for human rights, and sustainable development. Youcan learn more about the amazing work of Gold Standard here.

To learn more about your own carbon footprint, the WWF has a great tool. It might surprise you which of your lifestyle choices contribute most carbon emissions.
