SAINT CHARLES' COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Ecological. Sustainable. Fair. These three keywords describe the standards we set ourselves every day. Sustainability, the protection of the environment and fair business practices have been a concern of ours since our founding. The Saint Charles family is committed to a number of issues. We see ourselves not only as an economic company, but also as a part of society that wants to make a contribution outside of monetary aspects.
Our approach of "not more, but better" is not only our guiding principle, but also means for us above all responsible business management, in that we not only "avoid", but actively "contribute". With commitment, passion and great partners and projects that support us in our actions and in our way of thinking.
As a cosmopolitan company, we stand for diversity and variety. The Saint Charles team with its employees in Vienna and Berlin is a mirror of our society. Diverse, modern and tradition-conscious at the same time. Our roots are in Vienna, but Europe has long been our home. It is our concern not only to "avoid" but to actively "contribute". With commitment and passion. To build lighthouses with innovative products, intelligent solutions and passionate employees and partners. Lighthouses of sustainability. Lighthouses for the future. For the sake of our children and nature.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCT DESIGN
Our Saint Charles products are often made from 100 per cent natural organic ingredients, without any additives. High-quality packaging is needed to ensure shelf life. We therefore use over 95 per cent brown or purple glass bottles for our products. We try not to let any plastic get into our products. This is because plastic or PET bottles often contain plasticisers and other toxins that may interact with natural ingredients. A big advantage of our products: Glass is up to 100 per cent recyclable.
Local partners are preferred! You don't have to travel far for superfoods, because all the herbs we need already grow on our doorstep. We support many small partners, producers and growers in Austria and neighbouring countries. With our partners, we value the know-how and passion for natural medicine. Instead of negotiating the lowest price with suppliers, we focus on variety, diversity, regionality and quality.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SHIPPING
For all Saint Charles products, we do not use over-cartons. In doing so, we not only protect the environment. Practice shows us that minimalist but high-quality packaging with brown or violet glass is also possible without over-cartons and is appreciated by our customers. In shipping, we only use recycled paper for packaging and use 100 per cent no plastic for filling materials or inserts.
