About Livewell Directory

Why should I list my business?

Our vision is big! We want to help everyone around the World find their local, planet friendly, ethical and health endorsing businesses as conveniently as possible. At the moment people tend to go straight to the big supermarkets or well advertised businesses without considering where their meat comes from or whether a product has been tested on an animal or if the clothing they’re wearing was made by a person who works in terrible conditions. So by joining our directory you will not only gain recognition for your hard work in being ethical, but you’ll also be part of a revolution towards a healthier, kinder and fairer planet.

What is the listing criteria?

If any listings are found to not adhere to our terms and conditions we reserve the right to remove them from the Directory with immediate effect and without a refund.

Food

The following criteria is required for Food listings:

  • All listings must provide proof of certification via licence code or chain of custody numbers
  • RSPCA Assured Certification (or equivalent) is our minimum requirement for any animal products
  • Eggs must be graded 0 – 1 (free-range organic)

Retail

To list your business under this category you must provide:

  • Proof of certification membership via a licence code or chain of custody number (where relevant)
  • If not a member of a certification body, then provide proof of use of ethical products (where relevant)
  • Certification not required for businesses which sell recycled products

Wellbeing

Our criteria under this listing requires:

  • Providing licence code or chain of custody number of a certification body listed (where relevant)
  • If not a member of a certification body, our minimum requirements are the use of ethical products such as organic, natural or cruelty-free (where relevant)
  • Wellbeing is a category which mainly lists individuals or groups that offer health services such as yoga, pilates, life coaching etc. The inclusion of this type of business on our directory is to promote general wellbeing, and so the certification bodies listed may not be relevant.

To find out more, please visit our terms and conditions page.

Why the emphasis on certifications?

Certification bodies are important for us to support. We want to help educate the public as to why they are so essential in moving business and society in the direction of ethical, fair and planet friendly practices. Businesses, like yours, that are members / advocates of certifications and ethical practices should be recognised, which is why we include certifications as part of our search options and listing requirements.

What if I don’t have a certification?

If your business is a charity shop, resells used goods or you’re a supplier of hand-made items then we would be happy to consider you for a listing. If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible to list your business on Livewell Directory, please contact us with a description of your business and how you’re ethical and planet-friendly.

Troubleshooting

Will I be able to modify my listing when live?

You will be issued with an account automatically when you sign-up for a listing. Once logged in you will be able to amend your own listing and manage your account.

How long will it take to be approved and online?

We aim to approve your listing within 24 hours, depending on how quickly we can confirm your certification membership(s) where relevant. A notification will be sent to you via email once your listing is live.

If I need help with my listing, do you provide support?

Yes, we offer full support to all customers with their listings. If you need help with how to add an image or if you’re experiencing problems in any way, we are here to help. Contact us by email at community@livewell.directory and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

Do you provide refunds if I cancel?

ANNUAL

Yes, we provide refunds for Annual subscriptions. We require notice of cancellation, via email, within 30 days of your registration. We will then provide you with a refund. However, there will be an admin charge of £5 (or equivalent in other currencies). Please email: community@livewell.directory

MONTHLY

No we don’t provide refunds for Monthly subscriptions as payment is taken monthly. All you need to do is cancel your listing via email, and your listing will be taken down at the end of the month of cancellation. Please email: community@livewell.directory

How do I make my logo the preview image?

If you want your logo to appear as the main image of your listing, then make sure you set the logo as the featured image when uploading it to the site.

What format and sizes should my images be?

What are Watchdogs?

Watchdogs is the term for our reviewers of any listing on Livewell Directory. We have strict requirements to list a business on our site, but we also care about hearing from the public of their own experiences. This is a great way of getting feedback on a business and recognising truly ethical, planet-friendly efforts.
