GreenBean Organics is now part of Face of Flowers Organic Wales
In 1999 we “discovered” organics and began converting our West Wales beef and sheep farm
to organic status.
Over the last few years we have become convinced of the
benefits of not only eating organically but also of using chemical free
beauty products. We have also seen the environmental benefit of
organic farming with an increase in birds and wild life on our farm,
as well as healthier and happier cows and sheep. There really
is nothing like seeing the calves chasing around the fields on a summer
Now we want to share this organic lifestyle by bringing to you
the most comprehensive selection of organic products available on line. We
have tried where possible to offer products from small independent producers
and companies who share our views on ethical and sustainable methods
of production. We have, naturally, tried to source as many products
as possible from within Wales, inevitably though, in order to offer a
fully comprehensive range, we have occasionally had to go further afield. When
sourcing third world products we have tried to make sure that these are
FairTrade certified or ethically produced.
We also guarantee that everything we sell
is as ‘organic’ as possible and preferably certified by the
Soil Association, the leading certifier of organic products in the UK. Where
it is not possible to obtain fully certified items, such as cleaning
products or salt and water then we offer credible environmentally friendly
At the moment it is difficult to source fully
certified cotton products so these will have been made with certified
organic cotton but the final product may not be certified. If
any food product is not certified it will be clearly stated this also
applies to the beauty range where we have as far as possible only sourced
fully certified items.
We know there are more fantastic organic products out there and if yours
isn’t listed please let us know so that we can add it to our range. If
you enjoy shopping with us it would be great to hear from – if
you don’t then please tell us so we can put it right!
Why Face of Flowers? Blodeuwedd is a character from the Welsh legends
who was made from flowers – the name literally translates as “face
of flowers” – and is regarded by some as the Goddess of Spring
and Nature so what better name to represent an organic site?
