Importance of the environment
Health of the planet Earth is crucial for all of us. There is no planet B where we can escape when Mother Earth has been destroyed.
We all need to make ecological decisions, both in our personal lives and in business.
In our personal lives it is easy and fast to make some changes which really matter:
- Follow a plant-based diet. It is a very easy and a superfast way to influence the health of the planet, animals and yourself.
- Recycling: plastic, cardboard, glass, metal, and all the other items which are recyclable. In Finland, recycling is a very easy. It is an effective way to take care of the environment.
- Fly less and spend more time in the nature nearby. It has been scientifically proven that time spent regularly in nature improves health and wellbeing effectively.
- Think before you buy.
In the business: We have been importing goods for years, but at some point, it started to feel frustrating and not so ecological. Many items, like hoof boots which are our main products, are made in countries with no recycling system and 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. Metal parts of the boots are made in Europe. This is a huge step towards greener business for us. In Finland employees have high standard working conditions and rights.
We hope that you think before you buy another pair of hoof boots. When you buy, please take a moment and consider:
- Do I really need new ones yet?
- Could there be used boots available in the market which would be suitable for my horse?
If you still think you really need new ones, we are happy to help you to select the right size of durable, ecological, comfortable and classy FlexHorse boots™.
