I am committed to creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly business here at Snowdonia Soaps.
As part of this, for every single order placed on the website, I will purchase one tree which will be planted as part of a reforestation project*.
Other changes we have been working on:
Using environmentally friendly packaging is as important to us as it is to you.
From hand wrapping our soaps in food grade paper, using glassine bags for shampoo and bubble scoops, to glass jars for creams and lotions, we have tried to source sustainable packaging for the majority of our products.
For whipped soaps we use recyclable PET jars. We would love to use glass, but it would be dangerous in a shower, so these are the best compromise we can currently find.
And you can rest assured that we have put as much thought into the packaging your parcel arrives in.
And we use eco friendly corrugated cardboard sleeves to protect glass jars whilst in transit. And add additional protection with paper 'bubble wrap' made from recycled material.
The packing peanuts are made from starch and are biodegradable. Try pouring hot water on them and see what happens!
And our DPD mailing bags are made from 80% reclaimed material and are 100% recyclable.
The next change will be to replace the tape used to seal your parcel with a paper based tape.
*trees will be purchased in batches a couple of times a month rather than individually each time an order is placed.
