We have our first pledges!
We are delighted to have Enniscorthy Enterprise and Technology Centre join us in our early stages of development. The Centre have set up a community garden / biodiversity planting around the grounds!
We are also joined by Holos skincare, who have really embraced Goal 12 on sustainable consumption and production. They are going packaging free on orders and are aiming for zero waste to landfill in the production of their products!! Here are some of their activities
"We sell online and have recently invested in a plastic free packaging system. Any plastic/bubblewrap/unsustainable packing product we receive, we re-use rather than throw away and we ask our customers to re-use. Our business neighbours deliver used boxes and shredded paper for packing to us.Moving forward all new product packaging will be plastic free (or as much as is possible).
We use ingredients made from plants in our products. These come in little glass bottles and smell devine. When the bottles are empty, we pass these onto a Sensory Therapist who works with children and adults who have extra needs.
We buy our ingredients from sustainable farmers all over the world and only work with suppliers that have vegan, cruelty-free ethics at the fore.
We manufacture in small batches so avoid waste." - Niamh from Holos
