We are committed to using natural and certified organic ingredients. Our Himalayan mountain plants are grown, harvested and collected using organic and sustainable production methods. For every mountain plant we use, we work out sustainable methods together with our Nepalese partners, taking into account all possible environmental, social and ethical factors.
All our packaging is made from recyclable or recycled materials. But we want to do more. We want as much as possible to evolve to plant based or recycled packaging. This is where we are for the moment:
• all our labels and tubes are plant based, made on the basis of sugarcane
• the paper in all cardboard boxes and promotional material is sourced from sustainable forests
• we use glass bottles where we can
• we are working out a refill system (more info by the end of 2019)
But we cannot do this alone. We need you to help us on this one. Because by re-using and recycling the CÎME packaging, you help us care for our planet. So thanks for recycling them.
Our aim is to evolve to a circular model, minimising our CO2 emission and the creation of waste. However, until we have reached that point, we calculate each year our total CO2 emission.
To compensate for this emission, we help plant trees in the foothills of the Himalayas, together with WeForest. We chose to support the Khasi hills project.
This way, we can support the Khasi communities to restore their forest and to mitigate climate change in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Our active ingredients are mainly harvested and collected in food deficit areas in the Himalayas. Meaning that the local population depends on food import from the Nepalese lowlands.
We use the little airplanes, flying back empty after each food delivery, to transport our ingredients from the mountains to the lowlands.
From thereon, they are transported on the top of public buses to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, where they are all collected to be shipped together to our laboratory.
