Contented Company, Contented Earth: Ethical, Sustainable & Climate Friendly Small Business

Ethical and Sustainable Living as ethically and sustainably as possible has always been one of my core values. So when I started The Contented Company (and Contented Earth especially), I wanted those values to be at the core of the business too.  Whilst no-one can ever be perfect, making the best possible choice available at every decision is something I don’t take lightly – from choosing which products we stock, to how we handle your order, to how we get it to you, to how we try to have a positive impact on the world as a business.

Offsetting the Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Your Flights
