Eevia Health has implemented sustainability as part of the company’s daily life and we have an internal Sustainability Manual we follow to ensure constant efforts to meet the above goals. We are using wild organic raw materials from abundant resources that are either not utilized at all or underutilized. The harvesting happens carefully by handpicking. The majority of our raw materials come from the pristine forests of the Finnish Lapland of which 99% are organic certified.
Our raw materials are sourced nearby which ensures a low carbon footprint and traceability of the products. We choose our suppliers in accordance to our quality and sustainability related criteria. In production we make sure we are utilizing every part of the raw material. We are also aiming to minimize waste in every step of our supply chain.
We are constantly aiming for a better tomorrow.
