View as a slideshow

Conchus Hard bar shampoo

Shampoo bar, CONCHUS

100% natural, zero plastic packaging, handmade, palm oil free, vegan-friendly and cruelty free - there is a lot to love about CONCHUS body wash and shampoo bars. CONCHUS make everyday products without compromise. Made with rich plant butters, nourishing natural oils, delicate clays and pure fragrant botanicals, their bars create the perfect balance of bubbles and lather.


Ethical jewelley Little by little

Earrings, Little By Little Jewellery

Inspired by the complex details in a slice of Seville orange, Little by Little's new multifunctional earrings, the Seville Slice Ear Jacket, can be worn in two different ways - as a simple circular stud or paired with the intricate jacket. Little by Little Jewellery takes healthy, natural ingredients as design inspiration for all its collections, which are made in Peru using a source of partially recycled silver and presented in beautiful recycled card packaging.


Urban Collective organic bed linen

Bed linen, Urban Collective

Get ready for the longer nights with a new set of bed linen. We’re loving Urban Collective’s GOTS certified organic cotton and bamboo blends for softness and their edgy prints (like this tattoo inspired one from Harlem based designer Raul Magdaleno).


Patagonia New Arbor Collection Rucksack

Rucksack, Patagonia

Whether it’s back to school or back to work, Patagonia’s new Arbor Collection has you covered. The rucksacks feature 100% recycled materials (including 8.5 plastic bottles per bag) and are dyed using a method that saves half gallon of water per bag. They’ll carry all your stuff comfortably with padded laptop sleeves and plenty of compartments.


Smoke & Ash ethical jewellery

Silver rings, Smoke & Ash

We’re loving seeing more ethical jewellery designers. These handmade but affordable rings from Smoke & Ash are perfect if you’re a fan of the minimal-Scandi style but don’t want to shop the high street. The simple Dip ring is made of eco-silver wire.


Wawwa ethical menswear feature

T-shirt, Wawwa

Streetwear can be sustainable. Wawwa make vegan-friendly, 100% organic cotton T-shirts and hoodies for guys and girls. The range is made using renewable energy, is climate neutral and printed using water based inks. Plus every order gets a free tote bag made from recycled plastic and material offcuts, worth £12.


LUSH Glowsticks - MakeUp Highlighters

Highlighter glowstick, LUSH

We were the first to try the new LUSH Glowsticks out a couple of weeks ago. You'll love these five solid, plastic free glitter containing, zero waste, cruelty-free highlighters. You can use them on any part of your face (we’re not judging) to perk you up. Following on from its impressive 40 shades of solid stick foundation. LUSH are getting seriously good at mindful make up.


Malavara Haircare Elixir

Hair elixir, Malavara

Ever get to thinking that those people in the long distant past, with their lack of plastic, local and seasonal diet and all natural skincare had it about right? While that might be tongue in cheek, Malavara’s vegan-friendly Ultra Luxurious Hair Elixir is no joke. The pre-shampoo hair oil fuses ancient Ayurvedic principles with sustainably sourced ingredients like Hairy Basil Root. It will supercharge your shampoo routine. Oil it, wrap it, massage it, give your hair some love.


Nordgreen ethical watches

Watch, Nordgreen

Want to add a slice of Danish style to your autumn outfits? Nordgreen make unisex, minimal watches that are well made and reasonable priced. They’re the epitome of timeless Danish style, uninfluenced by passing fads but committed to style and simplicity and social responsibility. Each one purchased lets you choose to give a percentage of the sale to either clean water, education or rainforest conservation projects.


Sister & Co ethical Skincare Brand

Soap, Sister & Co

One of our favourite small batch skincare brands, Sister & Co, has a strong hard bar soap game. We’re talking Activated Charcoal to detox those clogged, smog soaked pores and Shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil to leave your face baby soft, not bone dry. Best of all there’s no plastic wrap, no nasties, its 100% natural and made via cold processing to protect the active botanicals. Go sisters.


Ethically sourced British cocktails Silver Swift

Cocktails, Silver Swift

Summer has a new tipple. We're loving these new Silver Swift low alcohol pre-mixed cocktails. Light and luscious, Silver Swift are made from almost all British sourced ingredients, come in recyclable glass bottles and what's more there's three delicious sips to try, Wild Rose Gin, Tipsy Iced Tea Vodka and Basil Blush Vodka. And as of this month, they're now available in Ocado.


TOMS Ethical Shoes & Footwear

Shoes, TOMS

TOMS has partnered with Liberty to launch a limited edition line of alpagatas that use a mish mash of Liberty paisley prints. The cotton material is as soft as silk and the shoes are as super comfortable as all TOMS. And of course for every pair for you, another gets sent to a child in need.


Skincare from Jersey Honey

Skincare, Jersey Honey

Did you know Jersey honey is world class? This beautiful new skincare brand, called Jersey Honey, harnesses the scent of the tiny island and its bees to create a luxurious shampoo, conditioner and moisturiser line. The age old wonder stuff, honey has antimicrobial properties and minerals while jojoba oil is an anti-inflammatory agent and soothes irritated skin.


Bath Towels At Chalk & Moss

Bath towels, Chalk & Moss

Does your bathroom need some Scandi style love? These super soft GOTS certified organic cotton towels from The Organic Company at Chalk and Moss are just the ticket after a soothing bath. The thick weave feels luxurious and they come in six stunning shades.


Food At Heart's Slow Chocolate Tasting Kit

Mindful chocolate kit, Food At Heart

Some bright spark has paired eating organic, handmade chocolate with mindfulness. Yup, now there’s an official excuse to stop what you are doing and sit and eat chocolate, hurrah! Food At Heart’s slow chocolate kits come in letterbox friendly recyclable packaging and include choc bars, cocoa nibs and hot chocolate powder with tips on sitting still, focusing on the taste and smell and relax. It’s your own Galaxy ad come to life.
