Our Environmental Strategy

Environmental sustainability has become imperative for our generation. As the impact of human activity on our planet are increasingly apparent, there is increased awareness of climate change, ecological footprints, dwindling natural resources, threats to our quality of our air, land and water, and ultimately questions about our ability to sustain our own well-being and quality of life.

Why is domestic production important?

Even if all the factories in Asia meet the highest environmental standards, the impact on the environment to ship product half way around the world is huge.

Every container shipped from China to Europe puts an amazing 2 tonnes of CO2 directly into the atmosphere.

Shipping product by sea to the consumer alone accounts for 5% of total global CO2 emissions? You may be surprised to know that the CO2 emissions for a large container ship is equivalent to the output of a small power station.

Environmentally it is almost a case of out of sight out of mind.

At Hubmar, we produce domestically.

We feel it is now time to tell our customers what we do, and why, so we can be judged more widely by the standards we have set for ourselves.

As a Canadian manufacturer of the very best Aromatherapy diffusers, accessories and related aromatic products, Hubmar is unique for the simple fact that we make our products locally.

Most other leading companies have their manufacturing done in Asia (mainly China).

Hubmar does source some smaller volume components in Asia, however the larger components are produced locally and all assembly and packaging is done domestically.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Environmental groups have been promoting "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" and Hubmar has put this at the centre of its strategy.

We are actively reducing the material content of our products by "going leaner".

We are re-using materials where possible to lesson our impact on non-renewable resources.

Each year our emissions, waste, and what is recycled are monitored with the aim of reducing the impact on the environment.

Every product which is returned to us is stripped down for recycling.
