Low-Impact Network

Low Impact Network

As of June 2012 we became a part of the Low-Impact Network which is administered by LILI, the Low Impact Living Initiative.

All member companies and organisations have genuine green credentials, and assess their products and services as a whole before branding them sustainable, rather than many large companies that use ''greenwash' as a means to promotes and protect themselves, rather than the environment.
