Sustainability at the Heart of What we do

On this page you will find out more about our current ambitions and see how we are planing to meet them.

Our Sustainability Ambitions

Our Sustainability Mission

Earthy Roots sees sustainability as a key factor in everything that we do. We have been identifying and looking at ways to become more sustainable as a business covering all the different aspects of work that we do. We are currently implementing a range of different measures which aim to reduce our impact as a company on the environment and increase our sustainability. To ensure that Earthy Roots has a common approach to meet our mission to become more sustainable we have developed the following ambitions and targets.


Our Sustainability Ambitions and Targets

  • Continue to plant bee friendly habitats around and near to our apiaries. With a particular focus on native species of wildflowers and bee friendly flowers.
  • We will continue as a company to have a sustainable ethos and pride ourselves on only using natural ingredients from ethical sources in all of our cosmetic ranges. We take trace-ability seriously and can with confidence say that none of our products or ingredients are tested on animals.
  • New products are to be produced in recyclable packaging and where not currently possible alternatives should be identified or developed. All existing products to be reviewed in order to meet our new targets.
  • All equipment used to be bought through sustainable sources.
  • To promote local collaboration and develop further links with companies in order to lower transport associated with shipping goods on a global scale.  This will involve looking closely at our packaging, ingredient and equipment suppliers in order to reduce emissions through unnecessary transport.

We will be continually reviewing our goals and setting new targets. Find out more about our progress and how we are going to meet our goals in future updates in our Latest News section.



Our Packaging and its Recyclability.

We have been very careful to use suppliers that use sustainable packaging for their products. We have chosen the packaging for our products with thought and care, thinking about the future and how we as a small company can have a positive impact on the environment whilst still operating. Taking these principles forward we actively encourage all of our customers to recycle or reuse all of our bottles and jars.

You do not have to use our packaging for storing similar products in, get creative and if all else fails put it in the recycling so that it can be made into a new product.

There are just a couple of key steps you must follow;

  • Separate the lid/closure from the bottle/jar or tin – Often they are made of two different materials so will need processing separately.
  • Always rinse out any containers before placing in the recycling bin – Unrinsed containers can cause whole lorries full of recycling to be rejected and this otherwise recyclable waste is often sent to landfill.
