Chia Sisters are on a journey to becoming waste-free by 2025 and are already certified BCorp and Zero Carbon. They are Nelson’s first living wage accredited employer too. Their business is climate positive meaning their overall activity reduces carbon emissions in the atmosphere. After reducing their emissions, the remainder are offset by planting native trees in the local Rameka forest, which is regenerating farmland.
