Natural Chemistry understands that our environmental responsibility does not begin and end with manufacturing naturally based products. It is our duty to manage their environmental impact as they move through the product life cycle. By progressively evaluating our operations and creating consumer awareness, we are enabling the overall efficiency of our company and establishing a better future for the generations to come.
Natural Chemistry focuses our earth initiatives in two main areas:
- Formula Concentration
The development of higher concentrate formulas for several of our best selling products has allowed us to conserve water, packaging materials and fuel for shipping loads.
All our products are packaged in 100% recyclable materials. Recycling our products allows the material to be reused for other products which reduces the amount of waste in landfills and energy used to create new materials.
The majority of our printed marketing materials such as brochures, product information sheets are produced using Forest Stewardship Council certified stock. The label on our marketing print documents signifies that it came from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations (Forest Stewardship Council). Also, we minimize our printing by making our marketing materials available online for customer use.
