nirāmaya is a zero-waste product supporter. What does that mean?
‘Zero waste’ is a set of principles focused on waste prevention. The goal is for no trash to be sent to landfills, incinerators or the ocean. In short, zero waste products conserve resources and minimize pollution. For many products, once they are used, the goods are dumped in a landfill or destroyed in an incinerator. In contrast, the zero-waste approach attempts to conserve natural resources and reduce pollution from extraction, manufacturing and disposal. Creating zero-waste products means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.
At nirāmaya, we use only all-natural ingredients. We source our ingredients from ecologically sensitive and friendly suppliers. Only the purest ingredients go into our products. None of the ingredients we use are toxic or harmful to the environment. Most of our ingredients are organic and are grown and produced by suppliers that follow environmentally-friendly and sustainable practices.
nirāmaya consciously selects packaging and shipping materials that maximize recycling opportunities and minimize waste. All of our packaging and shipping materials can be recycled.
Lastly, if you live in the Ottawa (Ontario, CANADA) area, nirāmaya will joyfully refill your product in the original nirāmaya packaging or in any container you prefer, so long as it is large enough to hold the quantity for a given product offering. Here are 3 options for you to consider in dropping off your container for refill:
- Drop off and wait. If you would like to drop off your container and wait for it to be filled, please allow us lead time to prepare your product so it is fresh and ready for your arrival. In most cases it will only take a few minutes to fill your container with your product.
- Drop off and return later in the day. You can drop off your container and come back later in the day to pick up your product.
- Drop off and come back another day. You can drop off your contained and come back another day to pick up your product.
In summary, nirāmaya supports a zero-waste product lifestyle in three ways. First, we use only natural ingredients that are non-toxic nor harmful to the environment. Second, we consciously select packaging and shipping materials that can be recycled. Lastly, we will joyfully refill your product in the original nirāmaya packaging or in any container you prefer.
