Onya Are Proud Natural Product Manufacturers in the UK
The last couple of years have been a tough one for the planet and for the people who care about it deeply. It seems that every minute of every day we are faced with the reality of finding out just how badly we have damaged the environment.
From global warming and climate change to oceans choking on plastic and chemicals getting dumped into our rivers, it can often feel like we are swimming against a tide of people and companies intent on causing as much damage as they can to the natural world.
Onya was started as a natural product manufacturer of all this doom and gloom. It is a message from us to show others that there are people out there who care about the environment and that there are small ways that we can change that will have big, positive consequences. There are millions of people out there who rejoice when they hear good news stories from the planet, and it is our mission to help equip these people as best we can for their everyday activities.
What do we mean by natural product manufacturer?
One of the biggest worries with many products on sale today is that they are packed full of chemicals, such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) which is a chlorinated vinyl used in many household items and appliances. Plastics, in particular, are not just terrible for the environment but they aren’t good for your body either.
Most food storage items, such as disposable zip-lock bags and lunchboxes, as well as water bottles, are made from plastic, which contains chemicals that could eventually leach into your food and drink. Plastic is also manufactured using crude oil, ethylene and propylene.
At Onya, we go to great lengths to ensure that we use natural materials where possible and our products are manufactured from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET). This is a recycled fibre made from recycled plastic bottles, which gives previously harmful plastics a new purpose and takes them out of the environment where they are extremely damaging.
And before you question the use of plastic, even though it’s recycled, in things like our reusable snack pouches, you can rest assured that all of our products that store food are lined with PEVA food-safe lining, which is a non-chlorinated liner that will keep your food fresh and safe to eat. The products we produce are made from non-toxic, chlorine-free, BPA Free and food safe.
Where possible, we also ensure that our products are 100% vegan-friendly and are free from any animal by-products.
We follow our brand values
Onya isn’t just about being natural product manufacturers. We believe that there is much more to a brand than what they sell and as such, we are a brand that is all about being ethical, sustainable and fair. Our products come from areas where they create jobs for fair wages, and they are manufactured under the strict sustainable rules and regulations.
