Certification story

Natural health company BetterYou has achieved the Planet Mark certification.

As part of its Better Planet Project, BetterYou use plant-based plastic, derived from sugarcane, in over half our product range. The company is working to remove ocean waste plastic, eradicate palm oil from its product range and helping to support the wider community.


BetterYou is working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, it will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, BetterYou has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year BetterYou must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
