To quote your Grandma's classic phrase - treat others as you’d like to be treated yourself. We feel the same about the planet and we like to think that kindness comes as second nature to us. With that we hold ourselves accountable to be kind to the natural world we all rely on. And in ensuring Bloom and Blossom is around for the long-term, we’re committed to being a sustainable business. For us, sustainability is focused on three key areas:
1. Our packaging
2. Helping others
3. Being a great place to work
This is our sustainability promise, and by putting it out here on paper (well, screen), you can hold us accountable too. There’s still challenges we can’t tackle alone, but we’ll do our best to make a difference where we can.
We commit to a product line in 100% recycled plastic by 2021
We target 50% of sold packaging to be recycled by 2020
We’ve made some great progress on this already. Our 500ml bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable, including the pumps. Plastic pumps are notoriously hard to recycle so we’re super proud we’ve managed to produce a recyclable pump. Yes, being made from 100% recycled plastic means the bottles are grey on the outside, but they are full of joy on the inside.
We’ll only use FSC certified card on our product cartons and our plastic bottles in the rest of our range are widely recycled.
We are proudly British, and even prouder to produce all of our products here in the UK, keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible and supporting local economies.
It’s our dream to one day own our own rose field so we can produce our own rose flower water right here in the UK too. We’re all about natural ingredients and can talk about them until the cows come home - so if you’re interested, find out more here.
At Bloom and Blossom our sole purpose is to help families thrive. And as a responsible business, our goal is to give back.
We commit to supporting at least one charity each year. This year we’re partnering with Action for Children who have been there for the most vulnerable children in our society for 150 years. We hope that our range of initiatives will help ensure even more disadvantaged children and their families across the UK receive the help and support they need.
We have implemented a way for you to donate to Action for Children as part of our checkout process and we’re working on other ways we can help.
The dream team
We are proud of our local, diverse team and continue to commit to offer a flexible working environment that supports working parents and family life.
