As four friends who started a business together, we know how important it is to take care of eachother. We also know that as we grow, it becomes more and more important for us to make a positive impact on the world around us. From the beginning, we have tried to create a planet conscious business, and little by little we’re getting there.
Many of our products are handmade right here in the UK, we have a wide zero plastic range and all of our other packaging is widely recyclable in your home collection bins. You may have noticed the shape of our bottles – but did you know that this allows your products to be shipped more efficiently, taking up less space and leaving behind a smaller carbon footprint.
Alongside this, we have teamed up with some outstanding charitable organisations that are helping to offset emissions, improve social well being and ultimately, make the world a better place for everyone.
grüum is proud to be plastic neutral certified. We’ve teamed up with plastic reduction and community empowerment charity, rePurpose Global. They help us to measure and understand our plastic consumption and give us the means to offset it.
We do this by funding collection communities and recycling plants that employ marginalised workers, providing individuals with a regular, stable income, and ultimately, an empowering path away from poverty. On average, rePurpose Global prevents 14,228,074 pounds of plastic from entering the environment each year. 🌎
We’ve teamed up with environmental and social charity, Ecologi to reduce our carbon footprint. Regular financial contributions to this outstanding scheme has so far led to the planting over 3000 trees, the protection and restoration of over 400,000 hectares of forest land, and the generation of various renewable energy schemes across the globe.
So far, thanks to teaming up with Ecologi, we have prevented 230 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. 🌲
Looking after the planet is about everyday actions. You may have noticed the shape of our bottles – this allows our products to be shipped more efficiently, taking up less space and leaving behind a smaller carbon footprint. Many of our products are handmade right here in the UK to further reduce transport waste.
From the beginning, we have created products with recyclable packaging. We’ve since created a wide range of zero plastic products that is ever expanding. ♻️
