FAQ & Product Information
About Natural Products
What are natural products and how are they different?
Natural products are formulated to only use natural ingredients or naturally derived ingredients. They avoid the use of petro-chemicals and man-made substances that are not found in nature. This is important to ensure that we don't expose our bodies to any substances that may subsequently prove to be bad for us.
All Carr Greens products are made from naturally derived ingredients - we believe this is a crucial part of making a contribution to sustainability.
What do you keep out of Carr Greens products?
As well as only using naturally derived ingredients in Carr Greens products, we also avoid any substances which may be associated with long term health issues, or at the very least have created a cause for concern. These include:
We also seek to use sustainable ingredients wherever possible, and to limit distance travelled of ingredients wherever we can.
What does ‘naturally derived’ actually mean?
Ingredients that form naturally in nature, or are extracted from naturally occurring substances.
What are the issues behind the ingredients?
There are very few ingredients which don't present questions or issues on their sourcing or sustainability. We are dedicated to avoid the worst offending and non-natural substances in Carr Greens products. In the spirit of full transparency we have set out in more details some of the key ingredients, why we have used them and any issues that may arise from their production or use:

What are sustainable products?
Sustainable products are those intended to materially limit the amount of the Earths resources in the manufacture, use and disposal. All products use energy and materials in their creation - but we could consider them sustainable if they make a significant effort to reduce this and/or are less resource intensive than common alternatives. There is no definitive definition of what is or isn't sustainable, so we will describe in more detail why we consider Carr Greens items to be sustainable or more sustainable than common alternatives.
Packaging & recycling Carr Greens
First and foremost Carr Greens avoids plastic wherever possible in the manufacture of containers and packaging. This is frequently not 100% possible but we are eliminating it where we can.
We have more details about what materials we use and how we try to reduce resources and increase recyclability.
How are Carr Greens products sustainable?
We choose packaging which avoids almost all plastic and can be almost entirely recycled. We try to limit the use of processes which compromise the recyclability of the product.
