Cheeky products : now registered with The Vegan Society
Wednesday, 28 July 2021
Our pursuit to bring Simple Reusables to even more people is an ever evolving one as new needs emerge in households, as more types of materials are developed for production, or, in fact, as new requests come from Customers with what would make their lives easier on the go.
We're always looking to do our best today and better ourselves tomorrow, by thinking about what else we could be doing and never resting on the old proverbial laurels.
And our stance on sustainability is the same.
We have been striving for this in all areas of our business from product and packaging, to ingredients and suppliers since day 1.
That was reflected in this year's Queens Award for Enterprise in Sustainability - awarded to commercially successful businesses that benefit the environment, society and the economy. Read more about our award here.
And when it came to veganism through the lens of sustainability, it was important for us to be able to offer - and guarantee, with credibility and authenticity - our products as being truly vegan.
Not only for our customers, but also for ourselves.
To know that we're doing one more thing to lessen our environmental impact and facilitate making bigger change possible, for more of us. Whatever your beliefs or dietary preferences.
For us, veganism and the quest for the credibility of being able to use the trademark against our products was about a belief in production and materials and the process that gets those to us.....and therefore to you.
It wasn't a short process (to say the very least....Heidi has the patience of a Saint with all the rigour that was gone through with this!)
But it's a hugely worthwhile one when we know why we're doing it..........
And the great news is, earlier this month we received confirmation from The Vegan Society that they have awarded us it.
The ability to use the trademark.
The recognition and endorsement.
'Certified by the Vegan Society'.
So from now on you'll notice 48 of our products - from oils to pants to wet-bags, wipes and more - with the new vegan logo (like the one above) in the bottom left hand corner, across our site.
That logo means Pants with absolutely no wool content, unlike many of other Period Pants on the market.
Ethically extracted ingredients, never tested on animals.
Fabrics used in pads, wipes and bags made with "dyes manufactured without the use of any animal products, by-products or derivatives (the word 'animal' referring to the entire animal kingdom. That is all vertebrates and all multi-cellular invertebrates)." (to quote the specific rigour our product checks went through).
We're really excited to be able to guarantee this to you but f you're ever in doubt about what's what or just want to understand more about our products, our processes, our suppliers, the vegan trademark (or anything else about our business to be honest), our incredible Customer Service SUPERSTARS are on Chat or email and LOVE a natter with customers.
We'd love you to say hi! x
