ÍON is excited to welcome our newest corporate customer Etsy Ireland. The team in the Dublin office have signed up for ÍON wellness programme, meaning they will take premium organic herbal drinks daily to support their health and wellbeing. The benefits of the wellness programme already speak for themselves: 87% of participants found their energy levels had improved by week 3 of the programme. We’re excited to see similar results for Etsy. It’s sometimes very difficult for a small company to make their programme stand out from the many wellness programmes available to companies.

Jennifer O’Riordan, Workplace Operations at Etsy Dublin explained the reason they chose ÍON wellness programme:

 “At Etsy we make employee wellness a priority and we are always looking for new initiatives that have impact and resonate with our own values. We love how ÍON Herbal Drinks are 100% natural and plant-based. Our team are generally quite health-conscious and this type of wellness programme being offered in the workplace really appeals to them.”

                         ÍON founder Dr. Aoife Kelly at Etsy European HQ in Dublin.

Etsy is a company that values and honors designers and makers and one that creates stronger connections among people who make, sell and buy goods. ÍON herbal drinks are handcrafted and made in Ireland, and Etsy in particular would appreciate the value of a handcrafted product. I am very proud to help ease the stresses and boost the energy levels of the Dublin based team. Some participants are enjoying Lavender Herbal Drinks programme that helps reduce stress levels, while other participants are taking energy-boosting Ginger Herbal Drinks programme.

ÍON and Etsy share one value in particular and that is in sustainability and waste reduction. Etsy was awarded Platinum Zero Waste Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council in 2017. The platinum certificate is the highest award possible and it's something Etsy works really hard to maintain. ÍON has a collection policy for companies, meaning empty bottles are collected at the end of the monthly programme, sterilised and re-used. For Etsy this aspect to the programme was essential to them. According to Etsy HQ in Brooklyn, they will commit to running zero waste operations globally by 2020.
