How are YOU helping the environment with our Carbon Neutral Conscience Free raw Welsh Honey?
For some time we have been concerned about the impact we have as a species on this planet which affects biodiversity, ecology and the climate. We are all intertwined yet we, as humans, are creating the biggest affect, and not always in a good way.
Offering a choice for YOU
We recognise that when we sometimes go shopping, and maybe it’s the only store around, that should we wish to purchase say tomatoes yet all of them are covered in plastic we have little choice. Its either have tomatoes in plastic, or none. We recognise therefore that there is a big onus as producers to help customers create that change by offering a CHOICE. All of our packaging therefore come plastic free. It’s the same with CO2 emissions and we offer YOU a 100% Carbon Free raw Welsh Honey. Our honey comes Conscience Free.
That choice is a fully sustainable honey that produces no Carbon Emissions when looking at everything together. For us that means no CO2 has been produced by supplying YOU with our delicious raw Welsh Honey. How do we do this?
We plant on our own land to ensure that we keep true to our word. For as long as the farm is within the family we will retain all of these trees to their full potential. Unfortunately, we have heard stories in the press of many companies investing in tree plantation schemes only for them to be ripped up by new owners some 10 years later. We will ensure that this does not happen.
How do YOU save CO2 and help sustainability with our raw Welsh Honey?
So, all of our honeys are CO2 neutral at the very worst. How do YOU save CO2? As purchasing our comes with absolutely no CO2 should YOU use our Welsh Honey instead of purchasing granulated sugar YOU will be saving all the CO2 that would be involved in that production. Its staggering that for every 1kg of sugar, 2kg of CO2 is pumped into the atmosphere And that is by purchasing ‘local’ European sugars made from sugar beet. Sugar cane produces a lower carbon footprint, but then it is shipped from quite far away so food miles must be considered. By using our raw Welsh Honey instead of granulated sugar YOU are reducing CO2 into the atmosphere 100%.
Climate change Welsh Honey & Pollination
By buying our Welsh Honey YOU are supporting not just agriculture and farming but helping to reduce the risk of climate change. This is helped by ensuring pollination happens as the diversity of plants ensures that they survive. Many plants need seeds, and many seeds need pollination. Without the seed’s plants do not evolve to our changing climate keeping them going for the next generation.
But the sustainability of flora also helps with locking in CO2. Plants lock up CO2 not just in leaves, but its stems and roots. This is a bit too tricky for us to measure here accurately, but we look forward to the day when research publishes these results. When we say our Welsh Honey is CO2 neutral, we mean everything we do here to sadly create some that is measurable. But it has wider affects where CO2 is locked up, but is not measurable right now. Rest assured the bees supported the pollination, so more CO2 is locked up!
What’s not to like about our raw Welsh Honey?
Briefly, the more of our raw Welsh Honey is consumed YOU reduce CO2, reduce plastics, reduce the effect of business’ on the climate and create more natural pollinators. And whilst all enjoying a lovely local raw Welsh Honey. What’s not to like?
