Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Nature is under threat and it is our duty, as individuals and as companies, to be the best possible stewards of our planet. The Nature of Things is committed to play its role. The best way we can do this is through our commitment to sustainable sourcing.

We only source from producers who have genuine passion for distilling top quality oils and a proven record of sustainable practices. Our producers work hand in hand with their communities to protect the environment and support their local economies. Whenever possible, we will source essential oils that are organic certified and/or fair trade certified.

 

Our commitments as a business

Sourcing our ingredients and packaging from ethical suppliers is not enough, we also need as an organisation to play our part. As a business, we are committed to: 

  • Using packaging with the highest possible recycling rate, such as glass, aluminium and paper​

  • Limiting our operations footprint by reducing our energy and water usage

  • Compensating our people fairly and supporting their development 

  • Supporting organisations that help protect the environment and promote responsible business
