Sustainability

All our processes and decision-making is weaved around a more sustainable future

Offsetting Our Carbon Footprint

 

Using the Toitu Carbon Assess Tool, we have gained visibility around the carbon we are emitting within our supply chain and then connect us with unique projects that offset this activity. It’s our mission to adapt and continually improve our business processes, to better our planet and do our bit to combat climate change.

 

Cheers to change!

Restoring Native Forests

 

We have offset our full carbon emissions by funding multiple Native Forest Restoration projects around New Zealand. This mitigates our climate impact and removes carbon from the atmosphere.

 

The native forests we protect and restore are Pigeon Bush Reserve, Rangitoto Station Reserve, Puhi Peaks and Puhoi Far North Reserve. These projects involve recovering native areas that have been degraded, damaged or destroyed. This can include planting new trees as well as controlling weeds, pest animals and other threats to forest habitat.

Glass Jars and Metal Lids

 

As an environmentally conscious company, we choose to use sustainable packaging over plastic alternatives.

 

This includes using glass jars, made from 90% recycled glass! Producing recycled glass reduces related air pollution by 20% and related water pollution by 50%. Plus our metal lids are 100% recyclable.

FSC® Approved Paper Labels

 

We only use FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) approved paper labels that are 100% recyclable. They are a natural, textured stock that is made from 30% post-consumer waste. 

 

You can be certain that our labels won’t be on earth forever!

Econic® Compostable Pouches

 

We are proud to offer our Salted Caramel Macadamias in fully home-compostable Econic® pouches, derived from sustainable and renewable resources.

 

Our packaging has been designed to decompose in home composting systems that contain the right amount of heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms, meeting the European or Australian home compostable standards.

Plastic Free Online Shopping

 

Yes, all our online orders are packaged in FSC® approved cartons using strong brown kraft paper that’s fully recyclable.

 

The decision to use paper/cardboard instead of bubble wrap and other plastics during our packing and delivery process has ensured that our (and your!) environmental footprint is kept to a minimum.
