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.emissioni di anidride carbonica

PLASTIC POTS – Plastic is one of the hardest materials to recycle. So far, non abbiamo trovato nulla che conterrà HayMax in modo che rimanga stabile che è anche riciclabile.

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, ecco una breve spiegazione.

When HayMax first started, Max sourced a small quantity of 5ml pots from a German manufacturer. Questi vasi sembravano arrotondati e carino, ma anche erano 'a doppia parete’ which meant that there was a small 5ml pot inside a larger pot. Come parte della unità di Max di diventare suono più ecologico ha trovato un produttore di pentole sede nel Regno Unito ed è stata felice - questo doveva essere più verde di spedizione pentole tutta la strada dalla Germania! O dalla Cina - che sarebbe più conveniente, ma non va bene per l'ambiente. 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-logo piccolo

We RE-USE boxes, even if it means they look a bit scruffy. Pensiamo che sia meglio che comprare quelli nuovi.

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

Sappiamo che quando si è in controversie commerciali inevitabilmente si presentano - questo è solo il modo in cui è. 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. Pensiamo che sia il modo giusto di fare le cose.

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