Ethical fashion brand Koko World's pink dress

Dress, KOKO World

Inspired by the romantic streets of Lisbon, this beautiful, soft Faial dress from KOKOWorld is both practical in its cut and stylish - with stunning Batik embroidery on the shoulders.

But what makes it really exciting is that's it made from Lyocell - one of the most ecologically friendly materials, that needs little water and can biodegrade in just six weeks. Not that you'll want it to, once you put it on. It'll be a holiday favourite in no time at all.

KOKOWorld supports Fairtrade artisans and tailors from across the world and stocks sustainable fashion for men, women and kids.


Pull the cork vegan wine

Vegan wine, Pull The Cork

It’s surprising how much wine isn’t vegan, thanks to the use of animal-derived additives and sulphates. Pull The Cork only sell sustainable wines, which means they’ve got a huge range of vegan-friendly vino. Proving popular this summer are vegan wines from Pivince in Slovakia. Choose between a light sparkling and a delicious orange wine, from a family who have been making wine the traditional way, since 1666. 

Explore other sustainable wines at Pull The Cork with a 10% exclusive discount code on orders over £100, using the code ‘Pebble’.


Ethically made boat shoes from Two Degrees

Boat shoes, Two Degrees

Who needs a boat to have boat shoes? Two Degrees recently smashed a crowdfunding target to launch their super comfortable boat shoes - and every pair purchased protects 1,000 feet of endangered habitat around the world. They also use a new bio-leather tanning technique and feature recycled soles - men, you've got lucky.

Kimono dress, The Acey

Fabulous ethical fashion store The Acey stocks Happy Haus and we're loving their easy wearing Kimono dress with flared sleeves. 100% organic cotton, designed for modern women and there are pockets. We love a good pocket here at pebble. Work it with trainers for the day and ankle boots for night.

Lunch pail, Oxfam

Available at Oxfam's Sourced by Oxfam online shop.


WakeCup's brown paper bag rucksack

Backpack, WakeCup

When is a paper bag not a paper bag? When it's a backpack. The WakeCup brown 'paper bag style' backpack is big enough for a laptop and notepad but sits snugly on your back. The lack of bulk makes it perfect for a busy commute. It's made from poly paper fibres which are spun together and are surprisingly strong. Best of all they'll soften and crumple with age.


iPad cover from Mamoq

iPad sleeve, Mamoq

When is an iPad sleeve not an iPad sleeve? Makers Unite upcycle lifejackets used by refugees and make a range of accessories from them. These hard wearing materials have had a long journey before getting a new lease of life as robust iPad sleeves and a loving new home with you. Available at Mamoq.

Storage bags from So Just Shop

Storage bags, So Just Shop

We do love a good upcycle project and these cute storage bags certainly are that. Once upon a time these were local mens’ caps in Zanzibar.

Ethical fashion brand Jean Franklin's jumpsuit

Jumpsuit, Jean Franklin

Face mask, Bodhi & Birch
