The 'social' criteria stipulates that:

✅ No harassment / violence
✅ Consideration of living wage gap
✅ Fair, legal working time
✅ Protection for migrant workers
In a similar vein, we use recyclable packaging materials from other small independent businesses, where possible. Being a natural minimalist my intention is to keep packaging to a minimum, but as with all things it's a balancing act: I need our products to arrive safely, and to have a bit of a wow factor.
