BUYING LOCAL

We buy local to reduce the cost to the environment, even if it means it costs us a bit more.

ALUMINIUM TINS – Our tins come from London. They can be recycled.Kohlenstoff-Fußabdruck

PLASTIC POTS – Plastic is one of the hardest materials to recycle. So far, wir haben nichts gefunden, das HayMax halten wird, so dass es stabil bleibt, dass auch wiederverwertbar.

Our pots are now made in the UK, which has been great for reducing our carbon footprint.

We are very occasionally asked why our 5ml pots have a recessed/hollow bottom, hier ist eine kurze Erklärung.

When HayMax first started, Max sourced a small quantity of 5ml pots from a German manufacturer. Diese Töpfe sah abgerundet und süß, aber waren auch "doppelwandige’ which meant that there was a small 5ml pot inside a larger pot. Im Rahmen Antrieb von Max 'Ökologisierung zu werden, den er einen Hersteller von Töpfen in Großbritannien gefunden und war begeistert - dies hatte grüner sein als Töpfe der ganzen Weg von Deutschland lieferbar! Oder von China - das wäre billiger, aber nicht gut für die Umwelt. The only downside of this change of pot was the recessed bottom. The 5ml quantity of the product has never changed.

ORGANIC INGREDIENTS – We source ingredients locally where possible. We buy the ingredients for HayMax from UK businesses if we can.

  • We use Fairtrade beeswax
  • We prefer the smell of French Lavender so we use this by choice, but we are open to similar smells from the UK. It is organic.
  • So far, we have not found anything else that we like as much which is also organic.

REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE

We RECYCLE envelopes and boxes in the office.Recycling-Logo klein

We RE-USE boxes, even if it means they look a bit scruffy. Wir denken, das ist besser als neue zu kaufen.

We never throw paper away. We use both sides and then we shred it and RE-USE it for packaging. We also shred envelopes and RE-USE padded envelopes.

TRADING ETHICALLY

Wir wissen, dass, wenn Sie im Geschäft Streitigkeiten sind zwangsläufig entstehen - das ist so, wie es ist. But we think there is a right and wrong way to handle any issues when they crop up.

We have never resorted to using lawyers or going to court to resolve any problems. We prefer to talk to people directly and sort things out amicably. Wir denken, das ist der richtige Weg, Dinge zu tun,.

We believe that if you treat people with respect they will treat you accordingly. This principle underpins our beliefs and how we work.
