As part of our principle to inspire wellbeing for the world, we are keen to reduce the impact our business has on the planet. The food chain is one of the basic keys to life on Earth and yet it is increasingly coming under threat through the effects of climate change. We are a fairly young company and so have a long way to go to achieve our goal. In addition to our Plant A Tree for Me program, here are some other initiatives we are currently employing:

  • Our range of spices and spice blends support organic and sustainable farming practices by small farmers and co-operatives.
  • We import direct and distribute direct, keeping the supply chain as short as possible and our goods as fresh as possible.
  • Our organic spices and blends are delivered from Farm to Pantry in 6 steps or less!
  • All of our food packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable and so we ask that you help complete the cycle by recycling the same.
  • Our organic spice, spice blend and gift packaging is free of sulphur, amide, amine, silicon, latex and BHT (Butylated Hydroxy Toluene) and/or meets FDA and CFIA regulations.
  • The manufacturers of our non Spice Sanctuary products are chosen, among other things, for their commitment to environmental responsibility.
  • We offer free shipping to collectives to help reduce our carbon footprint by only having one shipment apply to multiple purchasers.
  • We offer a one point collection point for local orders (Banff & Canmore) to further help reduce our carbon footprint.
  • We re-use and minimize packaging when shipping goods to our customers.
  • We serve the needs of customers better in the communities they live in by supporting and directly supplying good local food stores.
  • We engage the services of Canadian businesses and promote Canadian jobs wherever and as much as possible.
  • We partner with and supply other environment conscious businesses only.
  • Wherever appropriate and possible, we offer products or services with seasonal produce and organic ingredients in mind.
  • “Paperless” communication with registered customers: all news and updates will be sent via email including the option to purchase paperless gift certificates.
