SUSTAINABILITY POLICY

Greener Beauty recognises its responsibility to act sustainably across all of its functions to help create a more sustainable future and to make the world a better place.

Greener Beauty is committed to manage its activities and estates to promote environmental sustainability, conserve and enhance natural resources, prevent environmental pollution and bring about a consistent improvement in its environmental performance.

Greener Beauty is in fact determined to leave the planet in a better place than when the business started to operate.

Greener Beauty commits to ensuring that all staff are aware of these policies and the importance of adhering to them where possible.

This Sustainability policy will be constantly reviewed by the management and staff.

Vegan, Cruelty Free & Natural

As a vegan run business, we strongly believe that by only selling products that are vegan, cruelty free and natural this is where we can minimise our impact on the beautiful world we live on the most. These are the core back bone of Greener Beauty and this will never change.

Plastic Policy

While we are not a plastic free business we do recognise that plastic is having a negative impact on the world we live on. So we are committed to the following:

  • As of January 2020 we made a decision to only bring onboard new brands that are plastic free.
  • The only exception to this would be if a range of products was not only exceptional but game changing. As of March 2024 no new brands have met this standard.
  • Any brands that package products in plastic must ensure that the packaging is easily and fully recyclable in the UK.
Working towards being Carbon Neutral

Greener Beauty is committed to working towards our goal of becoming a carbon neutral business.

We commit to planting trees to negate the carbon footprint of sending orders and the day to day running of the business. You can read more about our commitment to trees by clicking on Our Tree Story from the About Us Menu.

We also are committed to hosting our website(s) on a green hosting platform.

Reef Safe Sunscreens

Greener Beauty commits to only retail sunscreens that are reef safe and will not cause harm to marine life.

Order Packaging

Greener Beauty commits to only using fully recyclable or compostable packaging for when sending out any orders. This includes any tape used to seal the box.

Any flyers included in the packaging will be produced on recycled paper using only vegan inks.

Delivery notes are not included to reduce the paper wastage.

Office Equipment and Resources

Greener Beauty is committed to:

  • Minimise our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste.
  • As far as possible arrange for the reuse or recycling of office waste, including paper, computer supplies and redundant equipment.
  • Reduce the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy efficient equipment and good housekeeping.
Travelling to Meetings

Greener Beauty is committed to have as many meetings using an online provider to minimise travelling where possible.

This sustainability policy is under constant review by the management and staff at Greener Beauty to ensure that we are causing the least amount of harm while also doing the best we can.
