We’re honoured to be selected as a finalist in this year’s Australian Organic Industry Awards in the category of Manufacturer of the Year. Huge thank you to the judges and @australianorganic for considering us.
Organic Merchant is wholly committed to organic practices in our day-to-day production from our facilities being powered by solar energy down to using biodegradable packaging tape. We commit to regular audits to maintain our ACO accreditation and ensure that our facilities and systems adhere to ACOS.
Our product packaging is proudly plastic free. We choose to seal our loose-leaf tea in home compostable plant-based cello bags and recyclable FSC certified and chlorine free cardboard boxes.
Our glass jars are made from biophotonic miron glass which extends the shelf life of products and reduces use of resources and waste as the glass is a natural product and 100% recyclable and reusable. Our labels are printed on recyclable paper using HP eco inks.
We are currently moving towards becoming a B certified corporation, which centres on purpose and people over profit. We are very mindful of how our business operations and model impact our workers, community, environment, and customers.
We continually review our products, packaging, operational procedures, and logistics to improve where we can, minimising our environmental impact and enhancing sustainability practices.
