Here at Mizan, providing high quality products is important. We also have a strong environmental policy which includes eliminating plastics whenever possible.
All our products are sustainable and organic most of the time. Occasionally our suppliers run out of organic herbs and tinctures and we have to substitute with non-organic ingredients, which is why we don’t label products as organic (except for the massage oils). Usually they are organic, but we want to be honest with you.
All liquid products are in glass bottles, herbs are in bags or tins, both of which can be recycled or even better re-used.
Packaging for dispatching products is generally recycled; we save all packaging coming in and re-use it whenever possible. When we buy packaging materials, it is from the Green Stationery store. Even the tape we use is non-plastic or paper.
In-house we recycle and re-use everything possible. For instance, when the printer has a blip, that otherwise wasted paper is shredded and used for packing or stapled together as a notebook rather than thrown away. The printer cartridges are all remanufactured, and when empty are sent for recycling. Every little thing helps.
All that we do has an impact on the world, the best we hope for is to minimise the negative consequences of actions.
