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.empreinte carbone

PLASTIC POTS – Plastic is one of the hardest materials to recycle. So far, nous n'avons rien trouvé qui contiendra HayMax de sorte qu'il reste stable est également recyclable.

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, voici une brève explication.

When HayMax first started, Max sourced a small quantity of 5ml pots from a German manufacturer. Ces pots semblaient arrondis et mignon, mais aussi étaient «à double paroi’ which meant that there was a small 5ml pot inside a larger pot. Dans le cadre de route de Max pour devenir son plus écologique, il a trouvé un fabricant de pots à base au Royaume-Uni et a été ravi - ce devait être plus vert que des pots expédition tout le chemin de l'Allemagne! Ou de la Chine - qui serait moins cher, mais pas bon pour l'environnement. 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.recycle-petit logo

We RE-USE boxes, even if it means they look a bit scruffy. Nous pensons que ce mieux que d'acheter de nouveaux.

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.

CHARITABLE DONATIONS

À HayMax nous pensons qu'il est vraiment important de faire notre part. Nous ne sommes pas en criant sur nos dons de bienfaisance, mais voici un haut rond.

HayMax is a proud supporter of the Fondation «British Allergy Allergy UK‘ the leading national charity dedicated to supporting the estimated 21 millions de personnes souffrant d'allergies au Royaume-Uni. They also provide a dedicated helpline, support network and online forum for those with allergy and intolerance.They also help and support to educate health care professionals who work with patients with allergic conditions.

HayMax has pledged a donation every year for four years to the Organic Trade Board, supporting growth of sustainable, organic industry in the UK.

Action Against Allergy and the Anaphylaxis Campaign are both very important to HayMax and HayMax works to support them in any way that we can.

Ad hock donations to marathon runs, fun runs and community events are made throughout the year, as well as raffle prizes for fundraising events.

TRADING ETHICALLY

Nous savons que lorsque vous êtes dans les litiges commerciaux seront inévitablement - c'est juste la façon dont il est. 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. Nous pensons que ce soit la bonne façon de faire les choses.

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