Upcycled and retro eyewear from Peep Eyewear

Peep Eyewear

Now you can combine Peep Eyewear's ethically sourced, vintage frames with your own prescription. Each upcycled and amazingly retro frame can be fully customised - whether specs or sunnies, with or without special lens, coloured tints and graduations. We've teamed up with Peep Eyewear to celebrate its first birthday. They're offering 20% off in April for pebble readers. Use the code: PEEPPARTY20.


Ethical and luxury backpacks from bottletop

Bottletop

Bottletop's cute mini backpacks are made from sustainably sourced leather and modified ring pulls, using artisans across South America, their traditional skills and a recycled plastic lining. The global initiative opened the first 3D printed store created by robots using upcycled plastic in London at the end of last year and makes for a luxurious but ethical take on the accessories market.


Ethical and sustainable new tweed brand for men

Cock & Bull Tweed

We can't tell if it's the name, the slow, sustainable approach of this new men's tweed brand, or the Peaky Blinders look that we love the most. Cock & Bull Tweed uses artisan produced, handwoven tweeds from the Isle of Lewis and creates caps, waistcoats and bow-ties in contemporary colours and styles. 


Ethical yoga brand Chakyra's crop top

ChaYkra

Make time for some yoga this long weekend - we're loving this simple crop T-shirt from new ethically sourced yoga label, ChaYkra. This is GOTS certified Indian organic cotton, made in fair trade factories so you can dedicate your practise to feeling good, guilt free.


Ethical accessories brand Chalk and Moss and a gorgeous ring from Emma Aitchison

Chalk & Moss

We're loving ethical jeweller Emma Aitchison's Three Peaks ring. Inspired by the peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdonia, these three hand carved stacking rings are made from brass and silver. Available from natural living store, Chalk & Moss.


Ethical swimwear brand Deakin & Blue

Deakin & Blue

If you're looking to embrace more swimming this summer, especially wild swimming, you'll need a proper cossie. Step forward Deakin & Blue who make flattering one and two pieces that are supportive, sexy and made from 100% recycled materials. We've fallen for the Monroe - it keeps everything in the right place while you're knocking off the laps.


Ethical organic Tshirt brand Ingmarson

Ingmarson

Ingmarson takes things literally with its embroidered T-shirts. This is recycled shit indeed, the T-shirts are made from plastic bottles and the offcuts from organic cotton. Hand embroidered in a London design studio, these slim fit T-shirts make an awesome addition to any wardrobe.


 Columbia OutDry Ex Eco Tech Shell is its first truly eco range

Columbia

Columbia's She Explores is especially for women who want to tackle everything that stands in their way. The Columbia OutDry Ex Eco Tech Shell is its first truly eco range, with no PFCs and 100% recycled materials. It's lightweight, waterproof and has an attached storm hood and adjustable cuffs.


Ethical accessories store So Just Shop stocks Edge of Ember cuff

So Just Shop

Let's get angular, with this gorgeous Edge of Ember Myla cuff (it also comes in silver). Available at So Just Shop, Edge of Ember make on trend pieces that come with a positive production story. This piece is made from 18K gold vermeil plated Sterling silver with white topaz stones for a little extra sparkle.


Phannatiq make cool ethical streetwear for women

Phannatiq

This super flattering Ariadne skirt from London brand Phannatiq comes in black, white or this showstopping 'flytipping' print. Made from a soft blend of organic cotton, bamboo and elasthene, this is the London look for conscious consumers and eco-activists. Be bold.


Ethical underwear brand Tizz and tonic

Tizz and Tonic

Tizz and Tonic make ethical undies that real women want to wear. We're talking proper pants (not dental floss G strings) that look gorgeous and are super comfy. Think organic cotton, almost zero textile waste and awesome prints. Their two piece sets will become wardrobe wonders in no time.
