- OUR VALUES -

"I am a Forest Gardener enthusiast after many years of learning about the relationship between our environments and mental health. XRAYX Store's values were formed through the practice of working in my Forest Garden, and profession, as a Therapeutic Social Worker. Read more below" Mark.

You can explore our very own therapeutic Forest Garden concept here developed by me and Natasha HERE.

- SUSTAINABILITY -

Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In addition to natural resources, we also need social and economic resources. ‘Sustainability is not just environmentalism. Embedded in most definitions of sustainability we also find concerns for social equity and economic development’.

Did you know? 

 

Adopting sustainable practices, whether large or small, can have significant impacts in the long run. If every office worker in the United Kingdom used one less staple a day by using a reusable paper clip, 120 tonnes of steel would be saved in one year.

- LEADERSHIP -

We believe that in order to create change – of anything into something beautiful – not only requires the right type of environment, but personal responsibility.

 

This is why we value leadership: empowering oneself and others through personal development, imagination, and humility, so we can help create great communities.

- INTEGRITY -

We think that for us to abide by our values we ought to be as honest as we possibly can. We owe that to ourselves, and for those we provide a service. 

We know we are not always going to live up to our highest standards. We want to practice what we say, and have enough humility to listen and respond to feedback.

- TRANSPARENCY -

To have integrity means to us: ‘to be transparent‘. Transparent in our communication, and transparent in our openness to conduct ourselves in a manner that ensures accountability. This is why we welcome all feedback from our community. 

We understand that sustainable practices are diverse, and complex. This is why we need our community to help us remain accountable.

- COMMUNITY -

XRAYX Store is a part of the XRAYX Network. This network has many different elements, but they are all intended to be fully shared with its community. 

This is why we aim for XRAYX Network, and its web assets to be fully digitalised through tokenisation by 2030. More information to be released.

- DIVERSITY -

  • If there is a central theme to XRAYX Store, it is diversity.
  • We humans are one species among many here on Earth and we depend on each other for our survival.
  • We respect differences in ethnicity, gender, race, religion, socio-economic status, talents, lifestyle, opinions, perspectives, education, etc etc. 
  • We believe by valuing diversity we can achieve a better service and outcome to our community.

XRAYX Store opened in October 2022. It aims at sourcing and promoting ethical products from the UK and EU mainland to UK customers.  XRAYX Store is a part of the XRAYX Network and is driven to be a force for good.  Its important to us that we get this right.  We use sources like the The Ethical Consumer to help us begin investigations into products we feel confident that meet the highest ethical standards.  We are working hard to discover new sustainable products and bring them to our community.  


Not all industries are equal; whilst some industries lead the way its clear that some lag behind.  For this reason we have decided that a number of products we thought we could provide do not meet the minimum standards.  The answer is as short one: we will not promote or stock products from industries that are – at the very least – taking their role in protecting our environment seriously. There are varying opinions about best practices; the important things for us is that we have paid close attention to what we promote, say, and do.  We are bound not to always get it right, but we are going to try our best to ensure we minimise our impact on precious resources, and reduce the impact we have on our environment.

 

All products that we promote have been thoroughly checked by us, and compared by research completed by The Ethical Consumer. Whilst we endeavour  to promote local (UK mainland) products the fact is for many years the UK has outsourced manufacturing and skills.  This is slowly changing, but it means for now a small number of products we sell are manufactured from outside of the UK mainland.  Our focus remains on promoting products that rely on sustainable resources, and that the supply chains are free from known bad practices.

 

We are committed to supporting our local charities who dedicate their time for us all. This is why we pledge 1% of each purchase made with us, and 5% of our annual profits to the UK Woodland Trust and City of Trees Manchester.  Both are committed at – not only protecting our environment – but returning damaged eco-systems to their absolute best: how they must be.  We are committed at providing full transparency with an annual report on how much we have raised.  This will be published and found at xrayx.store

If you have any information that can help us be better we welcome any feedback that helps us with our endeavour to create best practices. 

Thank you for reading. We really appreciate your time.

  • 2017 - FIRST THERAPEUTIC FOREST GARDEN COMPLETED

     

    The garden has been divided into flower garden, fruit garden, herb garden and green house.

     

    - 80 to 100 species have been carefully chosen and planted under the notion of complementing each other rather than competing.

     

    “A Forest Garden tour with Robert Hart was like a tour of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory with Mr Wonka himself…It was, like that garden that Alice in Alice in Wonderland can see only through the door she is too big to get through, a tangible taste of something altogether new and wonderful, yet also instinctively similar”.

     

  • 2009/2020 - HIGHER EDUCATION

     

    The Director (Mark Flynn) of 100 Domains Ltd spent nearly 10 years training and working as a Children's Social Worker.  In 2015 Mark spent 5 years training in Psychoanalytic Observational Studies accruing over 100  observation hours.  

     

    Mark continues to work as a Therapeutic Social Worker specialising in attachment training, whilst developing the XRAYX Network.

  • 2013 - LOCAL CURRENCIES WORKSHOP

     

    Currency Engineer Matthew Slater facilitated the workshop which focused on tokenomics and Governance embedded within Bitcoin technology and the like.

     

    We did not know it that day, but the very low attendance meant that we had close access to Matthew's invaluable teachings about the future of the internet, and money.  It changed our futures.  Not because we bought and sold Bitcoin (I wish we had), but rather the concepts shared that day opened up new possibilities.

  • 2008 - AN IMPORTANT BOOK

    This book is about communication.  It was integral in stimulating and guiding ideas during a hyper productive period leading to XRAYX and 100 Domains Ltd. 

     

    It is as relevant today as it was then.  There is a heavy focus on 'conflict resolution' and understanding the inner mechanisms of personal bias.  This book has helped in all aspects of personal and professional development.

    About the Author

    David Bohm (1917-92). Renowned physicist and theorist who was one of the most original thinkers of the second half of the twentieth century.
  • 2008 - FINANCIAL CRISES

     

    It was during this period that the idea and opportunity behind 100 Domains Ltd was created.  It was a trip around Europe in a camper van where ideas were crystallised.
