Our Sustainable Future

Here at Pacific Hygiene, we understand that our natural world is unique and precious, particularly here in New Zealand—the biota of New Zealand is amongst the most remarkable on Earth. Long geological isolation from the other continental landmasses has gifted us high species endemism, and we should all be doing whatever we can to preserve this for our children and children’s children.

As a leading manufacturer and importer of hygiene consumables in Australasia—which are necessary for our health and hygiene—we have worked and invested in understanding our environmental footprint as part of our commitment to sustainability and carbon neutrality, for the planet and our future.
