Sustainability

Regarding sustainability, we are doing what we can to look after our planet. 

We like to buy the best quality ingredients we can find and we look for the best taste, texture and freshness.  We use suppliers who have a good reputation, labour practices, duration of business experience and where possible organic practices and certifications. 

We try to find suppliers as close to home as possible. 

We are doing all we can to reduce the impact on the environment and we therefore choose amber glass because our vinegar likes to be in the dark and even though transport is a bit more costly than plastic, it’s easier and quicker to recycle.  Glass can also be reused in the kitchen, bathroom etc. 

We pack our product in boxes that are 70% quality recycled cardboard.  All boxes are reusable, recyclable and degradable. 

We protect the bottle during delivery by using natural crinkle cut shredded paper which is made from 80% recycled material and is 100% recyclable. 

As we use Royal Mail, all liquids must be placed in a leak proof inner and outer bag and marked as fragile. Our inner bag is biodegradable and our outer bag is fully compostable. We also use brown paper fragile eco friendly 100% fully recyclable and biodegradable tape. 

Our paper labels are plastic free and they peel off for recycling if soaked in warm water.   

Supporting Bath Beekeepers

We will be giving to the Bath Bee Keepers Association 10p for every 480ml bottle and 5p for every 240ml bottle we sell.

Bath Beekeepers are a Branch of Avon Beekeepers Association (ABKA) – Registered Charity No 271717 They are affiliated with the BBKA (British Beekeeping Association and are an umbrella organisation for their network of five local beekeeping branches.
