Giving Back to our Community & the Planet
We know becoming carbon neutral doesn’t happen overnight, so we’ve made a few changes to the way we do things. That way, we can make a difference here and now.
A few other ways we’re doing our bit...
We've revamped our sample packaging to make it 100% recyclable and replaced our plastic polystyrene wrapping with one that can be reused over and over.
Our recyclable boxes are used for most of our sample packs but occasionally we use our old non-recyclable bags, just so we don’t waste them. But don’t worry, we’re phasing these out, so they won’t be around for much longer!
Greener IT Facilities
We host our website on Google Compute (GCP), which has been carbon neutral since 2007 and is expected to be totally carbon-free by 2030!
We always make sure any computers and IT equipment are reused or recycled. We also avoid printing, wherever possible and recycle all our used toner cartridges. These little changes help prevent unnecessary waste and reduce how much rubbish ends up in our landfills.
We offer a volunteering scheme, where staff can take time off work to volunteer for a charity or take part in a community initiative without sacrificing any pay.
We’re always on the lookout for new causes to support, so if you know a charity or social enterprise that would love a helping hand, please let us know!

With the threat of climate change looming, we know the importance of doing our bit for the planet. Which is why, throughout December, we decided to give a little something back with our Plant a Tree campaign.
Between 3.5 to 7 billion trees are cut down every year and this rapid deforestation is having a devastating effect on the health and future of our environment.
With climate change making headlines across the world, sustainability is a hotter topic than ever.
