About Us

Why we’re here.. Our Ethos

Image Client
Onist aims to offer sustainable options for everyday products in an effort to promote healthy and earth friendly living. Striving to have products available that are made from sustainable materials or created with natural ingredients, with as little or no plastic packaging is what we're about. Reducing waste or offering biodegradable options is the underlying theme with most items adhering to this. Additionally we loath animal testing and stock products that are cruelty free. We do have a lot of vegan products with the aim of increasing this as we develop.

We also hope to promote awareness of the environmental issues facing the world today. Our planet does not have infinite resources, and it can’t cope with the demands made by today’s instant-gratification, disposable consumer market. This site hopes to encourage people to protect the planet by living more sustainably – choosing natural, earth friendly products and to help create zero waste. We regularly post articles and information on our Facebook page about sustainability issues, efforts being made by people around the world, plus tips and hints for living more sustainably.

One of the biggest barriers when it comes to people adopting a more sustainable lifestyle is a lack of awareness and readily available information. This is why we’re here – we aim to be both an information source for current sustainability issues and provide encouragement when considering more environmentally friendly lifestyle choices. We also want to offer a range of sustainable alternatives to the regular everyday products we use, allowing our visitors to choose more responsibly.

It’s hoped that Onist will help people make changes to their lifestyle so that together, we can begin to tackle the problems our planet is currently facing.
