We consider the environmental consequences of all business decisions and strategies.
We pay close attention to waste, whether that be in materials or energy.
Our power is provided by a renewable energy company.
Our own packaging is largely recycled and recyclable.
We are in regular contact with our suppliers to encourage them towards more sustainable choices.
Our vehicles are currently small diesel vans but we intend to replace these with electric vans at the earliest opportunity.
We recently received certification from Plastic Free Communities, a Surfers Against Sewage initiative, as an approved supplier.
We want to reduce the environmental impact of the products we sell so our list of organic, biodynamic and natural products is continuously expanding. We favour sustainably produced products wherever possible.
These aren’t just business decisions for us - this is the way we live our lives, and always have. Alan in particular has been an active volunteer and community leader in a number of environmental groups.
We know many of our customers share our belief that the environmental imperative should be central to every aspect of social and economic life.
We are fortunate to live and work in South Devon. It is truly an area of outstanding natural beauty and we will play our small part in keeping it that way.
