Importance of the environment
Health of the planet is crucial for all of us. There is no planet B where we can escape when Mother Earth is destroyed.
We all need to make decisions that are more ecological in our personal lives and in business.
In our personal lives it is easy and fast to make some changes that really matters:
- Go to a plant based diet. A very easy and super fast way to influence the health of the planet, animals and yourself.
- Recycling: plastic, cardboard, glass, metal, and all the other items that you can recycle. In Finland recycling is a very easy and effective way to take care of the environment.
- Fly less with airplanes and spend more time in the nature near by. It is proved that spending time in nature regularly increases health effectively.
- Think before you buy.
In the business: We have been importing goods for years and at some point it started to feel frustrating and not so ecological. Many items, like horse boots that are our main products, are made in countries that have no recycling system, environment protection not to mention proper working conditions for employees.
In 2011 we decided we want to make a change that really matters. It took years and years of work but we made it.
Flex Hoof Boots™ are made in Finland. In Finland we have high standards of environment protection and recycling system. Metal parts of the boots are made in Europe. This is a huge step towards more green business for us. In Finland employees has high standard conditions and rights.
We hope that you think, before you buy another pair of new hoof boots. When you buy, please take a moment and think:
- Do I really need new ones yet?
- Could there be used boots in the market that would be ok?
If you still think you really need new ones, we are happy to help you to select right size of durable, ecological, comfortable and classy FlexHorse boots™..
