We Respect Our Planet

In service to our environmental values, we respect our planet by following these practices:

  • Purchase clothing made from organic cotton or bamboo from Me to We Styles  in order to support Canadian workers paid ethically and in a respectable work environment
  • Use compostable and biodegradable bags
  • Compost all food waste and paper products
  • Recycle as much as possible (less than 2% of our waste is garbage)
  • Use bio-degradable and non-animal tested soaps, and cleaning products
  • Purchase from small, local businesses whenever possible
  • Return used containers to place of purchase to be refilled
  • Use cold water for laundry, for cleaning floors and where possible for dishes
  • Package our product in packaging that is recyclable and made from recycled material
  • Purchase produce as locally as possible whenever the growing season will allow
  • Wash and reuse hairnets rather than use disposable ones every week
  • Wash and reuse cloths rather than using single use wipes
  • Wash and reuse wet and dry mop heads as often as possible before replacing
  • Use paper towels for hand washing that are made from recycled materials
  • Reduce paper and ink costs by printing as little as possible and using low-printer settings
  • Use low-energy, florescent, LED lighting.
  • Purchase products made from the most renewable resources (ie: bamboo)
  • Minimally heat the work space and turn all heat and lights off and unplug all machinery when vacating the building
  • Immediately repair cracks or leaks in walls to maximize energy use
  • Combine shipping our product with others products to minimize our carbon footprint

We recognize that we still have a long way to go and at SalsaMan we continue to improve by:

  • Sourcing and purchasing more produce from Vancouver Island
  • Improving our insulation to maximize energy use
