Commitments, Sourcing & Ethics
We are strong believers in supporting good people and good practises and that means buying goods and services from people and organisations that have respect for others and the planet. We will not giving support to any organisations that are harming the environment or are harming people or animals in any way.
The people that we work with - whether they are customers, suppliers or associates - are part of our day-to-day and we would rather they were nice, honest individuals!
The money that you give to any organisation is the best way you have of changing things - for better or worse. Vote with your feet!
We work with a few different factories and suppliers, chosen for their commitment to quality materials and processes. We only work with materials that are safe and reliable and that must be proven with independent testing and personal inspection.
Due to the shift in global manufacturing, the best suppliers of stainless steel household products are based in China and India. Recent shifts in the supply chain have left European manufactures focussing on either more complex custom items such as furniture and industrial equipment or extremely low cost items such as food packaging that need to be made close to the food suppliers.
We remain open to working with new suppliers and if you are maker, manufacturer or distributor and would like to work with us, please get in touch!
We have always been a bit of a pair of “Eco Warriors,” or maybe more accurately “Eco Worriers” - knowing that stuff should be done differently but not really knowing where to begin. Making small changes like what we store our food in is a good step to making less of an impact on our precious world and also caring for our inner eco systems by reducing the exposure to chemicals each day.
We are passionate about what we are doing, we want to provide our customers with an honest product, that is safe, reusable, durable, long lasting and has minimal impact on our world. We also rather like tasty lunches and snacks and have a hearty appetite for all things healthy and tasty!
We’d love to hear from you and have your thoughts on what we are doing. We hope Mintie the hedgehog will make you smile and help you to have a tasty lunch every day.
