We all want to live more sustainably, but with so much conflicting advice, it can be difficult to decide which swaps are worth making. Here, we explore our five favourite eco-friendly brands, from our outdoor sustainable furniture, through to organic food delivery services, guaranteed to help you reduce your impact on the environment throughout 2022.
1. Riverford – For Produce
What began as a one-man-band delivering homegrown, organic fruit and veg in a wheelbarrow is now one of the UK’s most successful sustainable veg-box schemes. The brand has a firm focus on people and the planet, ensuring it offers a fair deal to growers, customers, and the environment. The company also offers a zero-packaging box, ideal for cutting down on plastic use.
2. Riley Studio – For Clothing
Riley Studio makes clothing for the conscious consumer. Creating beautiful, sustainable basics for both men and women, the brand is a fantastic option for those looking to reduce the impact of their wardrobe on the environment without compromising on quality. From recycled cashmere polos, to tops made of recycled nylon and dyed using food waste, the brand is as innovative as it is stylish.
3. Green Energy – For Gas and Electricity
Green Energy is the UK’s only supplier of 100 percent green gas and renewable electricity. All of the company’s energy is created in unique, sustainable ways, including utilising wind, water, and solar power. So, customers can rest assured that the energy powering their home isn’t costing the earth.
4. 1st Dibs – For Home Accessories
Opting for vintage and antique treasures rather than buying new is undoubtedly the most sustainable way to shop. 1st Dibs is a unique online marketplace offering a curated range of furniture, home décor, art, fine jewellery and clothes. From Andy Warhol collectables to lamps made of Italian Murano Glass, the site demonstrates that shopping sustainably is far from dull.
5. Oxley’s – For Sustainable Outdoor Furniture
Manufacturing sustainable garden furniture is at the core of our business. From sustainable garden benches, through to large outdoor dining table sets, all of the garden furniture we create is made from recycled aluminium and is designed to last for generations. Plus, it can easily be recycled again should anyone wish to. To demonstrate our commitment to the environment, we created our 10 Year Buy Back Guarantee. This means we will buy back any piece of furniture that has been bought from us in the last 10 years for half its original price. We then recycle the piece, making it new again so it can enjoy a second life in another home.
