We’re determined that our products make a positive contribution to the environment.
As we’re based in sunny Spain we don’t use much energy, and what we do use is substantially from renewable sources.
Natural Cooling and Heating That Uses Much Less Energy
Our building is designed to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Not too hard as the temperature rarely falls below 9 degrees celsius even in winter. We don’t have heating or air conditioning.
Using Local Suppliers Is REALLY Important
None of our product suppliers are more than 700km away. Everything else we need (such as packaging) is made in Europe rather than China. Everything ships using surface rather than air freight.
Our Packaging Is Super Low Impact
We use the most reusable, refillable and recyclable packaging possible (recyclable in real life not just in theory), and account for the total carbon footprint throughout the life cycle including delivery and recycling costs.
Choosing Riyafa Means More Trees Get Planted
When you buy Riyafa products more trees get planted. These trees reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air and these are EXTRA trees not replacements for existing trees as happens with palm oil.
We calculate our carbon footprint every month and offset any carbon excess by contributing to the Atlas Foundation and using the UPS carbon neutral shipping option.
We Reduce the Earths Carbon
We’re proud to be carbon neutral, in fact over the long term we’re carbon negative which means that with your support we actually reduce the worlds carbon.
