RECONNECTING HUMANS WITH NATURE
OUR STORY - MISSION - VALUES - SUPPORT
MEET AMANDA & CERI
We are an LGBTQ+ Couple who are Geordies and live in Newcastle Upon Tyne . We are massive animal lovers and we follow a plant based diet for our health and the animals.
We love to go on adventures with our 2 dogs Lolly & Memphis, being outside and enjoying nature.The beach is our happy place, as both of us being Earth signs we feel such peace and tranquility there.
Ceri is a keen photographer and Amanda loves to setup her telescope in the dark sky areas of Northumberland and Yorkshire and capture some 'out of this world' astronomical sights.
Where it all began...
Our love for animals, the planet and helping others is what inspired us to start our own business.
We started our zero waste journey 5 years ago after we changed our cleaning business to be 100% ECO.
We started to make changes within our home, business and lifestyle but found that we were having to use supermarket branded products that were expensive, single use plastic and not ethical as there was limited options for reusable, refillable, ethical and affordable products.
We found many small UK based businesses making handmade products that were just what we had been looking for.
So we decided to setup an eco natural online shop to provide people with the option to buy natural, eco-friendly, reusable, affordable products to help them to make the changes to to become eco from the comfort of their own home.
So in 2020 during lockdown, Amari Wild was born (Amari- taken from both our names) and meaning ETERNAL in Hebrew and Wild meaning to live or grow in the natural environment.
Amari Wild have set out to change the way people consume everyday products and think about their waste.
We offer people a zero waste solution on their everyday essentials by providing only the very best choice of products for you, your family and home, making sure they are ethically sourced, handmade in the UK with
100% natural ingredients, cruelty free, single use plastic free, plant based and sustainable.
We believe Eco friendly products shouldn't cost the earth, quite literally!
So why not have a browse in our shop to get you started on your eco journey or have a read of our blogs to give you tips on where to begin...
Welcome to Amari Wild :)
MISSION AND VALUES
Our mission is to help others to make small changes that make a big difference in their life and to the planet.
We aim to do this by helping as many people as possible to swap to more eco friendly alternatives to save them money, have less toxins in their home, reduce plastic waste and to reduce their carbon footprint.
Whether this be by providing an eco friendly product in our shop or help and support on where to start, as it can be very overwhelming knowing where to begin or what to buy and not all brands and products are as transparent as they seem, and you don't want to be caught out by the greenwashing.
As a small UK business we want to help support other small UK businesses so our promise to you is that we will only sell products that are handmade in the UK by businesses that share the same ethics and values as we do.
All the products we sell are made with 100% natural ingredients and are cruelty free, as testing on animals goes against EVERYTHING we stand for.
Our aim is to provide as many reusable & refillable products as possible thus helping to reduce plastic and landfill waste and keeping our oceans plastic free.
We sell skincare and household products with a zero waste loop system (find out more here).
Join us on our journey to make the world a cleaner, greener place to live by joining the Amari Wild Tribe and taking one step closer to being an ECO-warrior!
HOW WE SUPPORT FAR PLACE ANIMAL RESCUE
Farplace started small in 2002 taking in animals at their Farplace home in beautiful Weardale, Northumberland.
They registered as a charity in 2008 and since them, they have grown over the years, so they now have an animal care team of 3 full time staff, extensive vet costs, land purchase of woodland and fields that are used for both wildlife habitat creation and horse rescue. They have stables and a wildlife experience zone for the public footpath that crosses their land, with bird hide and a range of different habitats.
They have a great management team and their events and shops programmes are growing rapidly, to hasten the day they can open more rescue centres.
We hope you will join us in their journey.
Their charity number is 1126812
Their Scottish charity number is SCO47720
You can visit them at www.farplace.org.uk
We found out about what Farplace does by joining a Vegan group on Facebook. What they did resonated with us in a huge way because, believe it or not Lolly & Memphis are both rescues too.
We wanted to help this charity in any way we could so we decided that for every purchase a customer makes, 10% of that order (every order) will be donated to the charity.
We hope you agree with us when we say that, this charity is deserving of a little help and you will join us in our efforts to raise awareness of these neglected animals.
