Neal's Yard Remedies Issue 20 - 2018

From supporting indigenous communities who harvest our premium ingredients, to using World Land Trust Carbon Balanced card product packaging, we act sustainably and ethically to protect this beautiful planet for everyone. Beauty that protects the planet We’re ethical We’re the world’s first beauty and health company to be awarded 100/100 for ethics (in an independent audit by the Ethical Company Organisation) and the first in the UK to achieve Fair for Life certification, which ensures farmers and producers get a fair deal for their work and a social premium for community projects. We’ve also pioneered FairWild® sustainably harvested wild ingredients, which ensures a fair deal throughout the supply chain. Reducing our packaging impact We’re fond of our blue bottles. We think they look great. The blue pigment protects against sunlight, which allows us to create purer products with fewer preservatives. All our blue plastic shower, hair and skincare bottles up to 300ml are made from 100% recycled plastic, while the paper and card we use are from sustainably managed sources.
