handcrafts their products at their eco-factory in Dorset, where they make their
products in small batches to ensure they are as fresh and effective as
possible. The eco-factory – which also
houses offices and a store - is sustainably designed using energy efficient air
management, rainwater and grey-water recycling, solar panels and much more to
ensure their carbon footprint is kept to a minimum.
In an effort to
help keep oceans free of plastic, Neal’s Yard Remedies is working on a number of
initiatives, including a promise that all their plastic bottles will use 100%
recycled material by 2025. Most of Neal's Yard Remedies' products are offered in their iconic glass bottles and jars (except
where weight and safety dictate otherwise eg. within the shower) and earlier
this month, the company launched a refill scheme whereby customers can refill
two of their most loved products (Geranium
& Orange Hand Wash and Bee Lovely Bath & Shower Gel) at ten of their
stores which are listed here.
In addition to Ethical Accreditation, the company
is certified by Cruelty Free International, The Soil Association and CarbonNeutral®.
