We won the Green Business of the Year awards!

Yippee! We’re very excited to have beaten stiff competition to win the Green Business of the Year at the 2011 Chamber Bridlington and Wolds Business Awards that was held at Bridlington Spa recently.

Lloyd (our MD) was delighted to receive the award from sponsors Muntons Malt at a glittering ceremony at Bridlington Spa on 14th October.

To reach the final,we had to submit a nomination that satisfied environmental criteria including evidence of a green ethos running through the business, evidence of greening core processes like purchasing and offsetting emissions and evidence of a recognised green accreditation, like the ISO 14001 that we achieved in the summer.

We feel very privileged to have won the award – the environment is at the core of everything we do and we are very proud that our commitment to a sustainable future has helped us to win!

Next stop is the House of Commons next month to pick up our Green Apple award – what a year!

Thanks to everybody who continues to contribute to our success

Lloyd and Sara

 

Ethical Hull business shortlisted for local Green award

We’re delighted to share with you that we’ve been shortlisted in the 2011 Chamber Bridlington and Wolds Business Awards.

We have reached the final of the Green Business of the Year that is sponsored by Muntons plc, itself one of the Sunday Times ‘Best Green Businesses’ for the past four years.

To reach the final, we had to submit a nomination that satisfied environmental criteria including evidence of a green ethos running through the business, evidence of greening core processes like purchasing and offsetting emissions and evidence of a recognised green accreditation.

Given that it’s only 18 months since Lloyd  and I took over the business we are really proud to have become one of only 1% of all business with an ISO 14001 environmental accreditation and to have won a Green Apple award.  Fingers crossed that we can make it three in a row with The Chamber Bridlington and Wolds Business Awards at Bridlington Spa on 14th October!

 

 

World Animal Week 4-10 October

Please help to support World Animal Week by buying products that do not compromise animals in any way.

WSPA World Animal Week is a celebration of animals that helps to raise awareness and standards of animal welfare worldwide.

From October 4-10 every year, the week is your chance to help make the world a safer, more compassionate place for all animals. And when it comes to fundraising, there is no limit to what you can do; the important thing is to let your imagination run wild – and to have fun!

By celebrating WSPA World Animal Week you can help us reach out to the wider community to remind them that animals do matter. Animals like the orangutans who are routinely killed or orphaned by the palm oil industry. These beautiful animals face an uncertain future, but with your support we can help to rescue, care and rehabilitate them back into the wild where they so rightfully belong.  Please visit http://www.wspa-international.org/ to see how you can help.

Bio-D products contain no palm oils and are never tested on animals.  We are also proud to be accredited by the BUAV and to support the WWF.
