For the team here at Cosmetics Made Easy, running a business is not simply about making a profit. It’s a way of life we have chosen and with it comes social and environmental responsibilities as well as opportunities. We can make a real difference with the choices we make and the interactions we have with you the customer, suppliers and the local community. We are doing all we can to make positive choices but please tell us if you can think of anything that we can do better.
We believe in the mantra Reduce, Recycle, Reuse
The goods we send you can be fragile and sometimes have to travel across the globe, so our packaging has to protect them from the rigours of delivery systems until they are safely in your hands. This doesn’t mean we have to resort to cheap and unsustainable polystyrene and plastic bubble wrap.
We keep our waste to an absolute minimum, meticulously re-using and recycling everything we can. We even have our own on-site compost bin. The compost produced helps to fertilise our family allotment and we share the excess proceeds with anyone who works with us.
Our whole operation is entirely off grid, running on solar power with on-site coppiced willow providing fuel for heating whilst continually sequestering more carbon through it’s root system. Even though the energy is sustainable, we still try to use as little as possible, occupying only the space we really need and paying attention to our usage.
With our range including products from exotic and less developed countries, sustainability is always a major concern for us. Yes, we want to bring you innovative and unusual ingredients, but not at the long or short term expense of our planet and other people. Here is what we do to ensure our activities are as sustainable as possible so that you can feel positive about choosing us as your supplier:
We are always watching the industry for sustainability and environmental issues that could affect us and share what we hear through our BLOG. Where a product we stock becomes problematic we will always seek to find a more responsible source or recommend alternatives to you.
