You may already know that ecology is a real matter of the heart at Urtekram. However, did you know that we also work actively for a better and more sustainable world? This applies to the entire chain, from the individual grower to how we package and transport our goods.
We have signed both the Plastics Initiative and the Transport Initiative, and in 2019, we gradually switched to using plant-based plastics in all our skin and hair care packaging.
Less production waste
We always work to minimize our waste in production. In cases where it still occurs, for example when labels end up wrong and the products cannot be sold, we donate the goods to aid organizations in Denmark.
Solar cells and biogas
We take a number of actions to reduce our energy consumption. Here are some examples:
- Our Danish warehouse building has solar cells for electricity production
- We buy green electricity from hydropower
- Our warehouse uses biogas for heating
- We have lowered the temperature in our production to reduce energy consumption
