Majority of our products are packed in material that is capable of being recycled, re-used as well as being compostable and bio-degradable.

What is Palm Oil?
Palm Oil is a variety of vegetable oil extracted from the fruit and seeds of the oil palm, although it is native to parts of west Africa, the trees are mainly grown on enormous plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia, which produce 86 per cent of the world’s supply.
Reitzer Healthcare does not make use of Palm Oil in any of their products.
How does Palm Oil harm the environment?
Oil palms grow well in low-lying, tropical regions, which tend to house rain forests and peat-lands. They home to an array of endangered species including orangutans, rhinos and tigers. The creation of massive plantations has meant these rich ecosystems have been replaced with mono-cultures – “green deserts” in which native animals and plants cannot thrive. Burning of forests to make way for palm pollutes the environment, and deforestation is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. In total, palm oil plantations are now thought to cover more than 27 million hectares. While palm oil development has brought great economic opportunities to some local people, it has also been linked with the persecution of indigenous groups as developers move in and seize land.
