We are very, very proud to announce that we have been certified by Ethy for sustainability!
Ethy is the free app which allows you to shop with accredited sustainable brands, and live a more environmentally considerate lifestyle. But, why is it important to be sustainable?
The United Nations defined sustainability as meeting the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations meeting their own needs. This is extremely important because if harmful processes are maintained, with no change, it is likely that we will run out of fossil fuels, huge numbers of animal species will become extinct, and the atmosphere will be irreparably damaged. This would be catastrophic.
What wouldn’t be? Clean air, nontoxic atmospheric conditions, growth of resources that can be relied upon, and water quality and cleanliness, are just some examples.
So how does Ethy make it super clear to see how brands are scored on their sustainability? Trustmarks. Only companies that have successfully passed ethy's accreditation assessment are permitted to use trust marks. Ethy has six core paths which represent the most pressing sustainability challenges, they are the following: Stable Climate, Clean Planet, Responsible Usage and Production, Healthy People, Thriving Communities and Protecting Biodiversity and Animal Welfare.
There is more information here - www.ethy.co.uk/our-standards/stable-climate on trustmarks, it’s very interesting and definitely worth a read.
Forager Health has proudly received the following trustmarks - Thriving Communities (Gives to charity and community champion), Healthy People (100% Natural), Protective Biodiversity and Animal Welfare (100% Vegan), Responsible Resource Usage and Production (UK Made) and Clean Planet (Plastic free, recyclable packaging, recycled packaging and home compostable).
This is all great, but how is Forager Health sustainable? We are proud to say that we use only compostable packaging, plastic free tea bags and ethically sourced ingredients. Our tea bags contain absolutely no plastic, are made from a non-GMO plant based material and are home compostable within 6-8 weeks. Isn’t that brilliant? Here is some more information - “As NeoSoilon® is a PLA tea bag filter made from non-GMO plant based material, it is the best packing material for organic tea, allowing for completely certified organic tea products.” - www.teacoffeepackingmaterial.com/product/pla-mesh-neosoilon
