Here at ARRAN Sense of Scotland we care about the environment and are actively working towards reducing our carbon footprint.
Our procurement strategy and product offerings are focused around minimising single use plastics while maximising the amount of recyclable materials in our new product launches e.g. our ongoing amenities refill program. Our principal bottle supplier is committed to sourcing materials that can be readily recycled and are advancing their programme to include moe PCR (post consumer recyclyed) material in ARRAN bottles.
We also have, and continue to, actively reduce the amount of plastics included in our secondary & gift packaging. Our cardboard gift cartons and boxes are sourced from suppliers whom work with FSC board, committed to well managed forest sustainability & recycling programs. All our corrugated cardboard is fully recyclable and comprises c. 80% of recycled paper.
Finally, we are continuing to focus on sourcing natural ingredients for inclusion in all our new formulations, including our ongoing commitment to using sustainable palm oil in our broad range of bath & body soaps.
Please note, none of our finished products have ever been tested on animals, nor have we ever commissioned our suppliers or any other company to carry out animal testing on our behalf. Read our full Cruelty Free policy here.
Let’s work together to reduce our carbon footprint, it’s in our nature…
