Hi Guys,

Hope you're all well. I've been delayed putting this on due to the lurgy but back in full force. The ideas board liked the idea of a thread for ethical companies so thought I'd better get my butt in gear and start it off with a couple of recommendations.

I came across Ethical Superstore recently but haven't got round to ordering from them yet but they seem to have good reviews and a great range of products.

https://www.hairygrowler.co.uk/ No it isn't a dodgy porn site, put your dirty minds away folks!! This guy is an amazing jeweller based in Cambridge. he uses old coins, silver spoons and has even started using old and used marbles in his work. I've had a couple of pieces bought for me of his and they are really something special.

It would be awesome for folks to share companies, websites, crafters, stores near them and products that have good ethical and environemental standards.

Have a top week peeps

I have an app recommendation! It’s called ‘Good on you- ethical fashion’ - they also have a website. 

They have lots of interesting blogs on ethical fashion, as well as ethical brand ratings where you can find ethical brands that match your style. 

For example this post on 10 sustainable alternatives to Urban Outfitters!

Hi @Antski 

Updating you on my thoughts on Smol. I’m made up with them. I use the laudry tabs, fabric softener and also the dishwasher tabs and they do a great job.

 

I’m sure I’ve had a card in that has a referral scheme mentioned in it so perhaps they started it after you had posted on here. Will check out my next box and let you know if there’s one in there.

I thought this thread would be a great place to share an app I was recently recommended! It’s called ‘Treeapp’. 

The app allows you to plant trees in various projects all around the world. The app even helps you calculate your carbon footprint and shows you how many trees you’ve planted and how that’s offset your carbon footprint.

You can do this all completely for free, you can plant trees as often as everyday if you like! It’s funded by different sponsors, you just need to answer some questions relative to that sponsor (ie may be questions about what you think of their brand) to ‘fund’ the planting of your tree. 

You can find out more here. 

What a great idea! 👍

I’ve only had it a week, but my friend has planted trees in every continent, and loves tracking his carbon offsetting! So I am very excited to be onboard:grin:

Great share, thanks @Antski 

My order should turn up in the next few days to try and have decided to trial the dishwasher tabs too.

As a couple of people asked me over on another part of the site

for a link here about Smol, the company who sell eco-friendly washing products that they deliver direct to their customers, here it is!

https://smolproducts.com

I've been using them for 6-7 months and I'd thoroughly recommend them, they work very well. You get a handful of capsules (9) for £1 for the trial offer; a full package is £4.50 for 24 non-bio ones. This usually lasts me a month, only doing laundry for myself and a few things for my dog. When they're used up the packaging all goes into my cardboard recycling bag.
