On World Oceans Day, we honour our planet's shared oceans and our personal connection with them. It's a day to recognize the ocean's vital role in our existence and to promote ways in which we can help protect it.
We are delighted to announce our partnership with Dalloway Terrace at The Bloomsbury Hotel and tonic brand The London Essence Company, we launched a three-month summer terrace floral installation and limited-edition Neal’s Yard Remedies afternoon tea, which will focus on ethical and sustainable practices, and the preservation of British biodiversity.
For all of us at Neal’s Yard Remedies, World Bee Day is a chance to celebrate our precious pollinators and all the wonderful things they do for our ecosystem. It’s also a day for reflecting on our own role in the protection of species facing dramatic decline, as we continue our mission to help save as many bees – and their habitats – as we can.
Since opening our doors in 1981, we have been committed to reducing our impact on the earth. From the charities we partner with to the ways we source our ingredients, we live and breathe our mission – not just on Earth Day, but every day.
This year, we’re celebrating the work of the Nature Friendly Farming Network (NFFN) and donating 50p from every transaction made this Black Friday weekend to the sustainable farming organisation’s peer-to-peer learning programme.
Many of us are becoming more conscious of our environmental impact, seeking solutions to help combat climate change and protect wildlife, and looking to holistic approaches to support our overall wellbeing. In short, we’re searching for ways to live more sustainably – and at Neal’s Yard Remedies, we believe that getting involved in the organic movement is one of the best ways to tread more gently on the planet. So, we’ve broken down six simple steps to help make choosing organic easy for a safer, healthier and fairer world.
The ever-growing list of industry buzzwords – think ‘clean’, ‘green’, ‘eco’ and ‘pure’ – can make navigating the beauty world a minefield. Organic beauty is at the top of that list, but it’s more than just a popular catchphrase – it’s a planet-positive movement taking beauty by storm. As proud pioneers of organic beauty since 1988, we thought we’d decode the term, so you can choose organic confidently, enjoy all its benefits and love it just as much as we do.
We all need to do our bit to look after our oceans, and today we’re reflecting on our own sustainability initiatives and goals, as well as taking a closer look at one of our favourite aquatic ingredients.
