Concept Amenities, recognized globally as a world leader in the supply of guest bath amenities, is one of the first companies in the Guest Amenity industry utilizing sustainable palm oil.
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certificate has been presented to Concept Amenities in recognition of manufacturing soap products using only RSPO palm oil. Concept Amenities ensures this by partnering with certified sustainable palm oil growers who adhere to RSPO social and environmental standards.
Established in 2004, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a not-for-profit association developed to implement global standards for sustainable palm oil. Their objective is to promote the production and use of sustainable palm oil for People, Planet, and Prosperity.
“We are proud to partner with responsible and certified sustainable palm oil growers,” said Natalie Bloom, Innovation & Sourcing Manager of Concept Amenities. “In recent years, there has been a significant increase in consumer education relating to ingredients and sourcing practices. This has fueled growing demand from guests to use ethically sourced and sustainable products. As a manufacturer and supplier, we respect our responsibility to assist with efforts to help relieve the plight of deforestation, to advocate fair wages for families, to improve working conditions, and to protect wildlife.”
Nearly 50% of products on supermarket shelves contain palm oil, from shampoo to beauty cosmetics, chocolate to butter, cleaning products, the list just goes on. Unfortunately, much of the palm oil used in our favorite brands is collected by destroying forests and precious habitats for animals and plants. People are also forced to relocate from their land all while corporations reap millions in profit. There is good news, 50% of palm oil producers are RSPO members and have shown that you don’t have to cut down trees to produce palm oil. The collection of palm oil can be both profitable and sustainable.
As consumers, we should insist that brands use sustainable palm oil in their products. By using RSPO products, we can do our part to help save the environment, prevent massive deforestation and pollution, and help indigenous communities thrive while sparing Orangutans and other wildlife from being killed.
