Sustainability Advisory Panel
Making ethical shopping easier for you

What is SAP?

The Sustainability Advisory Panel brings together six leading eco and ethical experts. Every single product in our eShop has been individually reviewed and approved by the Sustainability Advisory Panel, providing a guilt-free shopping experience for the ethically-conscious.

Panel members have been selected for their extensive experience in fields ranging from waste and recycling; ethical fashion; carbon management; behaviour change; corporate sustainability; environmental charities and sustainable living. The panel is independent of Green Rewards and its role is to help us bring an ethical shopping experience to our customers in a hassle-free way by vetting our full range of products before they enter our shop.

The Panel are always happy to hear from our customers. If you have a burning question for them, please email [email protected] with Sustainability Advisory Panel as the email subject and we will pass your query on.
