Our Certifications

When picking more responsible packaging we ensure this is
certified by a global independent standard such as FSC or GRS.

This ensures our paper packaging does not contribute to deforestation or
illegal logging and our plastic packaging contains recycled materials.

We are committed to transitioning to more responsible materials in the future
and will continue to work on this aspect of our business.
