Is your packaging recyclable?

What charity work does The Cosy Cottage Soap Company participate in?

We are proud to have partnered with many selected charities over the years including The Breast Cancer Haven, MacMillan, Marie Curie, The Dementia Society and The Orangutan Foundation. We also work very closely with The Croft in Malton, which is part of the Camphill Village Trust for adults with learning challenges. Our partnership with the Quaker Congo Partnership is also ongoing and we have provided training and equipment to women in DRC to enable them to build sustainable livelihoods for them and their families.

We have taken to decision to select specific charities on whom to focus for a period of time (such as six or twelve months) rather than spread our involvement too thinly and risk diminishing its impact.
