Sustainability and Sauce Shop

We recognise that, as a manufacturer, our business has a negative impact on the world around us.

This awareness pushes us to continually strive to make our company more sustainable in a variety of different ways—whether that be by reducing plastic in our packaging, becoming climate positive or proudly partnering with Ecologi on much larger environmental projects.

Is Sauce Shop a sustainable business?

Open tab

We're proud of where we are on our sustainable journey but, let's face it—we're not saving the world by making sauce.

As a manufacturer who make sauces from scratch, we recognise that we have a negative impact on the climate and environment.

There is always room for impovement and, as we grow, we're becoming more sustainable in our practices. So far, we've become carbon negative, we've supported several environmental projects, we plant a tree for every order placed through our website, and have significantly reduced our plastic usage.

Is sustainability important to Sauce Shop?

Open tab

We believe that sustainability should be at the back of everyone's minds in everything we do—both as a business and as individuals.

Although we're here to create great tasting sauces, that shouldn't come at a great cost to the environment.

Tree Planting

Do you fund tree planting projects?

Open tab

Absolutely. We plant a tree for every order placed on our website.

Deforestation and wildfires have contributed to habitat loss, ecological collapse and rising temperatures globally. The projects we support work to restore these ecosystems and, once grown, our trees will help absorb excess carbon from the atmosphere.

It's important to note that trees grow slowly, so the amount of carbon they absorb will be more significant in the future. Therefore, reforestation projects we fund aren't included in our carbon offsets—that would be cheating!

Where are your trees planted?

Open tab

Our trees are located where they can have the maximum impact. Most of them are in Madagascar, with some more in Uganda and Mozambique. Again, you can find where they're located here.

What type of trees are you planting?

Open tab

Mostly, our trees are mangroves, located in Madagascar. They're tropical, coastal trees which can survive in super harsh conditions. It's thought mangroves absorb 4X the carbon that other terrestrial trees absorb - their complex underground root network is essentially a massive carbon storage unit. That's alongside acting as a natural coastal barrier so that communities and ecosystems are protected in the future.

Carbon Negative

What do you mean by carbon negative?

Open tab

Carbon offsetting is not a quick fix solution to the climate crisis and there are many false claims made my businesses surrounding the topic. Planting trees is not an effective way to offset carbon.

At Sauce Shop, we like to be real. With Ecologi, we are able to offset our carbon by supporting real projects, backed by real evidence, such as producing energy from waste rice husks in India, providing cleaner cookstoves in Zambia and Ghana, and using waste biomass to produce electricity in Chile.

Each quarter, we offset 2x the carbon we emit across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions alongside making conscious efforts to reduce our impact as much as possible.

Are tree planting and offsets the same?

Open tab

Not at all. Trees take time to grow before they reach their full carbon storage potential.

We offset our carbon footprint through a range of projects that are reducing, or avoiding, greenhouse gas emissions.Find out more about where our donations go at

What projects are is Sauce Shop supporting?

Open tab

Through our partnership with Ecologi, we are able to support a range of carbon avoidance projects that are certified at the very highest level. (Verra, Gold Standard)

This has included peatland restoration and conservation in Indonesia, generating electricity from landfill gas in Brazil and producing renewable wind energy in Bulgaria.
