The Herb Temple consider the impact of its decisions on its workers, customers, community, and environment. It is committed to collaborate with companies that share the same values, promote these responsibilities and behave in a similar way. Therefore we choose partners that respect certain codes of ethics.
We bank with Bank Australia, Australia’s first customer-owned bank and the most responsible bank in Australia. They divest from the fossil fuel industry, support renewables, animal welfare and have been carbon neutral since 2011.
We use Future Super for our superannuation funds. Similar to Bank Australia, Future Super has zero investments in fossil fuels, in companies that finance the fossil fuel industry and no investments in companies involved in detention centres.
We send your parcel using Sendle. A company registered B Corp and Australia’s first carbon neutral delivery service.
Our shipping boxes contain zero plastic and even the packing tape we use to seal the boxes is Landfill-Biodegradable made by BioGone.
And we search the web using the beloved Ecosia search engine. They use profits from advertisement to plant trees all over the world.
These are just a few things we do to help make the earth a better place. By choosing to support The Herb Temple and The Happy Herb Shop Newtown you become part of this virtuous circle.
