When the week starts with #Earth Day , protests continue for environmental reform and millions of people take heed of David Attenborough warning about the potential climate apocalypse?
There is environmental hope ! At Proper Oils we know it all starts with making the right sustainable changes however small.
It’s important to think about the choices you make whether that’s the businesses you partner with or the suppliers you buy from.
The first question you should ask. Are they making the right choices environmentally and sustainability?
At Proper Oils we are very aware of these responsibilities. Whether we print on recycled paper or source our energy from a sustainable Green Energy source. These choices only cost a small amount more but it’s the core value of our business to make the right environmental choice over saving money.
Our business is founded on environmental principles of creating a circular economy for cooking oil and therefore creating green energy from waste.
So please this week take a moment to think about what you could do differently as an individual or a business. Especially when you are thinking about who you work with and buy from.
Here are the key actions we have taken over the past 12 years. We are proud of these environmental actions we have made. What changes can you make?
