What responsibility means to us
The team at LittlePod are a forward-looking bunch. We take our responsibilities seriously, which is why we strive to ensure that every aspect of what we’re involved in, from pod picking to package recycling, is as sustainable, ethical and conscientious as possible. This is reflected in everything we do, from our choice of supplier to our packaging materials (such as aluminium and glass, which are widely recyclable).
Recently, LittlePod has teamed up with charitable organisation, Blue Ventures who have developed a wide range of projects from Marine Conservation to Women's health & Education initiatives. 10% of all sales in the LittlePod online shop go to the charity. Dr Vik Mohan is currently involved in rolling out a pioneering Women's health project in the Vanilla growing region of Madagascar.

A small excerpt from Tim Ecott discussing responsibly sourced as part of a more ethical way to trade ahead of 2016.
Sustainability expert Patricia Rain is an inspirational figure in the world of pure vanilla. She works tirelessly on behalf of growers worldwide to promote fair trade and reduce opacity in the industry. Patricia has endorsed LittlePod from the beginning, and with her ongoing support it is our desire to increase the use of real vanilla, raise awareness of the habitats that support its cultivation and minimise the environmental impact of distribution and disposal of our products.
