Certificate of Sustainability

The Healthy Life in Devizes has been awarded a Certificate of Sustainability under the international Greenleaf Eco Standard.

Over the last 3 years our focus has been to methodically work in the background to make lasting and important environmental changes so that as a business and as a business leader we can help our customers, our business community and our wider community of Devizes make easy and practical steps to head towards carbon neutral.

Carbon neutral is not something one should pay others to offset. We need to all make small changes.

Our first change for our customers is that we have added 'Country of Origin' to the website. This allows you the consumer to choose where your products come from. The information can be found in additional information on each product page.

The impact assessment isn’t as invasive or time-consuming as it sounds.
For SMEs the assessment involves a couple of meetings plus information processing and reports.

Although only about a quarter of businesses gain full certification first time out, the assessments come with full environmental impact reports, a roadmap to carbon zero and full list of recommendations to become fully certified within 24 months.
The Healthy Life has achieved Certification first time round.

Justina has organised a discount code for a Green Leaf audit for like-minded businesses that want part of a trusted, vetted platform of eco-friendly organisations.

In our area we have the wonderful Hayley from @packaging_not_included and also one of our suppliers @greenpioneerltd who are working with Greenleaf to take their businesses Carbon Neutral.
