WaveWall is a health-conscious company and places a high priority on sustainability, ethics and the environment.
We have set out our ethical values covering the use of animal products, the environment and CO2 emissions and working conditions in the interests of transparency and you can read about them on this page.
In line with those values, we are 100% vegan friendly and carbon neutral. This exciting step will bring us closer to a sustainable company and future.
No Animal Products Used
We believe in the importance of human health and also the health of all beings and that is why we are working hard to phase out animal products in our range. All products sold through our website are 100% vegan friendly.
We do not support the use of animal products or animal testing. While we do cite some evidence from studies on rats, we do not endorse the use of rats and other animals in carrying out scientific studies and strongly encourage the scientific community to perform more human studies on the effects of mobile phone radiation.
In making our products vegan we are trying to alleviate animal suffering as well as improving the environment. The farming of cattle for meat, leather and other byproducts has a devastating effect on the global environment and ecology. It is much more resource-intensive than plant-based agriculture and ultimately these are resources better spent elsewhere for a sustainable future.

We believe that our environment is precious and fragile. We also believe that climate change is very real and poses a severe threat to the planet. We work hard to reduce our carbon impact wherever possible in the manufacture and transport of our products. We are constantly trying to reduce our use of air freight, and using sea freight where possible instead.
Sadly, we can’t reduce our carbon footprint completely – yet! Therefore, we neutralise all the carbon that we cannot cut out through carbon offsets. Carbon offsetting means we sponsor the plantation of trees to “breathe in” the CO2 that we emit.
We believe that everyone has the right to reasonable and safe working conditions. We work hard with our suppliers and manufacturers to ensure that everyone who works hard to develop, produce, package and deliver our products to you work in fair and safe conditions. As of 2019, we are asking all our suppliers to, at a minimum, conform to the Fair Labor Association Code of Conduct.
We believe that international trade has an important role to play in alleviating poverty and our products use parts from a number of different developing countries. We try our best to provide employment to those who need it most and to ensure a reasonable wage relative to living costs.
We are a UK registered company and we pledge to pay our full and fair share of UK corporation tax.
Carbon Offsets Purchased:
We use sustainable methods wherever possible (such as heating our offices and choosing packaging) and use carbon neutral methods where needed. We have purchased the carbon offsets below in addition to cover extra emissions that we cannot eliminate directly. Certificates are in the name of Lime Creations Ltd – our parent company.
