Ethical cleaning firm announces partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

09th Jul

Bio-D was founded in 1989 in Hull and has been committed to sustainable practices and supporting local businesses, projects and initiatives from day one. It is the UK’s leading manufacturer of environmentally responsible, ethically sound, hypoallergenic and vegan cleaning products.
Lloyd Atkin (left), managing director of Bio-D, said: “From our ingredients to our manufacturing processes and supply chains, the natural world has always come first. Our ethos has been to create products that don’t cost the Earth, in any sense.
“We support everything Yorkshire Wildlife Trust stands for. It believes in protecting and restoring our natural world for future generations and ensuring that our wildlife, woodlands, grasslands and more are able to breathe and thrive.”
Last year, Bio-D celebrated its 30th anniversary by enjoying its greenest year yet, introducing bottles made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste plastic across its entire consumer range. The national cleaning brand encourages its customers to ‘think local’, so decided to do the same when committing to its first corporate partnership.
Lloyd added: “Yorkshire is Bio-D’s home; the company was founded here and our roots are still very much in the county. Our headquarters are in Hull, so we wanted to support a local cause that would truly benefit our region. The more positive local projects that can secure the necessary funding, support and commitment of local people, the more we can make a real difference. Together.
“We hope that our partnership will continue to develop and that we can help Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for many years to come.”
Bio-D is now a Gold-level corporate partner, joining just six other organisations in the top tier of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s corporate partnership programme.
“We’re delighted to welcome Bio-D as a corporate partner,” said Rachael Bice, CEO of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
“Much of our marine work is focused around eliminating plastic pollution and marine waste from our seas, so we’re pleased to support a company that uses 100% recycled plastic throughout its range – particularly one based locally in Hull, as those are the very seas that the trust aims to protect and restore.”
Bio-D has an ISO14001 accreditation from the British Assessment Bureau for putting environmental management at the heart of its operations, and its products have been recognised by The Ethical Consumer Magazine as a ‘Best Buy’.
