My aim is to bring to you as many eco friendly and green products as I can. This is to try to make life easier for you and so that you can do your bit for the environment without spending hours looking for the best sustainable and environmentally products. I'm researching many companies, but they need to fit with my values.
There are many companies that claim to be green and organic, but then they have many things with plastic packaging. We need to be looking at eliminating all single use plastics. A lot of these companies say they only use recycled plastic. They also say it’s recyclable once finished with. Can we be absolutely sure that when we put it in our recycle bin that it’s definitely going to be recycled.
I will continue to add companies to my website as and when I’ve done sufficient research to make sure they have my values. Please keep checking back for updates.
I've spent many hours researching the Internet for the best products I can find that are sold by companies that have the same values as me.

Our mission is to promote a balanced diet and improved well-being through the use of Superfoods, which have many benefits for the body and mind.
Our story began with us producing natural supplements for weight loss. We believe in maintaining a healthy weight using good quality, natural, supplements which support an active lifestyle and good diet. This organically progressed into a passion for improving health and lifestyle through the use of high quality Superfoods. We want to share the benefits of Superfoods with others and demonstrate how easy it is to incorporate Superfoods into your diet for a better you.
We are all aware of the disastrous effects of the use and disposal of plastics. For this reason we are committed to using 100% recyclable materials wherever possible, this includes our delivery packaging. We only use plastic where it is absolutely necessary and we are constantly looking for alternatives.

Big Green Smile view on plastic
BigGreenSmile’s fight against plastic
A key topic on everyone’s mind at the moment is plastic packaging and how it can be reduced or eliminated altogether. So, what are we doing to tackle this issue?
Plastic free products
We encourage suppliers to minimise use of plastic and when reviewing new product lines prioritise those that contain no plastic all.
Plastic free wipes
We have discontinued all baby and facial wipes that contain plastic and are looking for a completely plastic-free option.
Plastic free packaging
Plastic packaging received from suppliers with our deliveries is put straight into dedicated recycling bins that are situated around our warehouse. The pellets we use to protect your goods in orders are made from starch that is 100% biodegradable. The pellets offer great protection, ensuring products reach you in perfect condition. The boxes we use are plastic free and we use paper tape with zero plastic in it to secure your boxes.
