We are very passionate about protecting the natural environment and are continuously working with our suppliers to make sure we source sustainable products wherever possible. Here are a few of our favourites from our clothing, gift and food & drink ranges. Look out for them in store and make your home more eco-friendly.
Thought clothing use natural, organic and recycled fabrics which helps lower our impact on the planet. Some of the clothing range is made from wool, its natural fibres have thermal properties meaning it’s super-soft and cosy. Then there’s their organic cotton, this doesn’t need as much water or harmful chemicals as conventional cotton. They also use bamboo and hemp, both are soft and comfortable to wear and gentle on the environment too; growing fast and using minimal resources. All natural fibres are of course biodegradable creating less waste going to landfill. We have a good range of Thought clothing, scarves and socks, plus a changing room to try on before purchasing.
Glick luxury gift wrap and accessories have added more recyclable and recycled products in their 2020 range. They offer gift bags, wrap, boxes, tags, paper bows plus recycled cotton twine.
Playin Choc use bio-degradable, recycled and recyclable packaging. All their ingredients and products are certified organic. They have been accredited with The Soil Association certification meaning that there are less pesticides and agro-chemicals in their ingredients and that farms are managed in a holistic, environmentally friendly way with an acknowledgement of the wider benefits of bees and diverse flora and fauna.
BeeBee Wraps are a natural product meaning at the end of their year-long life they return to the earth, just as nature intended. The wraps are made using only four sustainably sourced ingredients; Organic Cotton, British Beeswax, Organic Jojoba Oil & Resin.
Green toys use milk jugs, just like the ones in your refrigerator, and recycling bins to make their toys. While recycled milk jugs are the primary ingredient in their toys, they sometimes integrate other types of recycled plastic when needed. By using recycled plastic this diverts material from landfills, saves energy, and reduces their carbon footprint.
English Spirit produces all their spirits from scratch on site rather than importing from abroad. This means that less mileage is being used by making all on site.
