French Soap

Environmental Policy

Policy Statement.

 

We’re passionate about french soap and we’re passionate about our planet and we sincerely believe that a small contribution from all of us can make a big difference. Our commitment to the environment is to have a zero waste policy and so we refuse to sell any products in plastic bottles or using plastic pumps. As a consequence, all our french soaps and products are sold "naked" without plastic and ​packaged in 100% eco-friendly, bio-degradable or recyclable materials.

 

We firmly believe that we have a responsibility to the environment far beyond our legal and regulatory requirements, so we’re committed to reducing our environmental impact and are continually striving to improve our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.

 

We believe that the successful future of our business depends on the service that we offer to the customers we serve, the sustainability of the environment, and the communities and economies in which we operate. We accept that we bear a responsibility to consider the impacts of our actions and how they affect the environment both directly in terms of our own operations, and indirectly through our purchasing decisions, the products and services that we offer to our customers, and the business opportunities that we pursue.

 

We're committed to minimizing the impact of our operations on the environment and to demonstrating leadership by integrating environmental considerations into all aspects of our business practices.

Save our Planet!
