What does Balineum do about environmental issues?
This is something we think about a lot, because we all have an impact on the world we live in. We believe that we have a moral responsibility to provide our customers with quality products that won't need to be readily discarded or replaced. We use sea or road freight for our shipments, rather than air, and use packaging that can be recycled. We work with manufacturers who are also environmentally concerned and when feasible we use organic materials. It's a start and we're looking at ways to improve our environmental performance further. We also believe simply describing something as eco, green or organic doesn't make us environmentally or socially sound. There are consequences resulting from all consumption's and we like to consider the overall impact of our decisions.

Is Balineum concerned about ethical trading?
We are. Our suppliers are chosen because of quality not price. We only work with established and professional manufacturers. We regularly visit our manufacturers. We also believe that paying our suppliers in a timely manner, and paying them fairly, is an important part of running our business.
