Why we called Shizen Remedies?

Shizen (in Japanese) means “Nature” and “Natural” and we really love  nature so we choose  ‘Shizen Remedies’ as it reflects our belief that nature can heal us, help us clean ourselves, maintain our wellbeing and keep us beautiful.

We are passionate about  the three “R”s – Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling

The three “R”s help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They represent conservation of natural resources, reducing landfill space and wasteful use of energy.  Each of us can make a difference by reducing, reusing, and recycling materials at home and throughout our communities.

Reduce

Waste prevention reduces the generation of waste  so it is the most preferred method of waste management and goes a long way toward protecting our environment.

Little things can help , for example: Purchasing durable, long-lasting goods, Seeking products and packaging that are toxic free, redesign products to: include recyclable raw material in production, have a longer life and be used again after its original use.

Reuse

Use durable coffee mugs, refill bottles, reuse boxes, purchase refillable pens and pencils, bamboo toothbrush, wooden spoon and folks, use cloth napkins, towels and nappies, reuse the empty jars into containers for your own creation remedies or jams.

Recycle

Recycling prevents the emission of many greenhouse gases and water pollutant, and saves energy. Using recovered material generates less solid waste. Also, when products are made using recovered rather that virgin materials, less energy is used during manufacturing, and fewer pollutants are emitted.

Benefits of Recycling

Conserves resources for our children’s future. Prevents emissions of many greenhouse gases and water pollutants, save energy, supplies valuable raw materials to industry, stimulates the development of greener technologies, reduces the need for new landfills and incinerators.

Buying Recycled Products

There is more to recycling than setting out your recyclables at  the curb. In order to make recycling economically feasible, we must buy recycled products  and packaging. When we buy recycled products, we create and economic incentive for recyclable materials to be collected, manufactured, and marketed as new products.
