Q & A

General

Where are you located?

I have recently moved to Keene Ontario but my bees live at my grandpa’s farm in Omemee. I spend most of my time in the Peterborough and Northumberland/Kawartha Lakes area. There is no store location for Growing Green Co.

How long have you been beekeeping/making soaps?

I’ve been beekeeping for four years and I’ve been making lip balms and soaps for myself for a while but only selling them for about a year.

Products

Do you test on animals?

I only test on myself and my family. I make sure that I use and like every product before I start selling it.

What do you mean by “all natural ingredients”?

I only use natural ingredients in all of my products. That means no harsh chemicals or synthetic products. All my ingredients are often found in your own home. I use olive oil, coconut oil, and avacado oil. I also use honey and beeswax from my own bees. In addition I only scent my products with pure essential oils or oils I infuse myself. My face oils contain infused oil I create by using organic fairtrade coffee beans and almond oil.

Do you make everything yourself?

Everything I sell is hand made by me.

Are you Nut free?

I do not use peanut oil in any of my products but I do use almond oil. I clean and sanitise my equipment after each product is made but I cannot guarentee there will be no contamination from any of my ingriendents.

Are you zero waste?

I try my hardest to be zero waste and plastic free at every stage of Growing Green Co and in my own life but I am not fullly zero waste. I still purchase some ingredients in plastic packaging but I am always looking for the best option. In the future I hope to be fully plastic free. However at my current scale it is too expensive, as Growing Green grows I will have more oportunity to switch to zero waste without raising my prices.
