I always love it when someone shares a great shop with me. Especially when the products they sell are just up my street. Which is why I am asking people for shops they love and sharing them with you here on my blog.
Eco friendly and ethical shops edit. Sharing independent shops online at Love Our Shops UK shopping directory.I am finding so many new shops doing this and love them all. I hope you love them too.
Emma has shared with me 4 sustainable, eco-friendly & ethical online UK independent shops. All completely different shops, with a wide range of products helping you shop ethically every single day. Read on for inspiration and shopping ideas.
The Kind Store is a selection of vegan, natural and sustainable products. Essentials for you and your home. This means you can shop sustainably and at the same time live a cruelty-free lifestyle. With an ever growing range of everyday essentials, stocking 100+ brands.
Founded by Natasha Tyler in March 2018. She believes everybody can make a difference and we all have the power to influence change by making small changes to our daily lives. Tash say “Where you spend your money will shape the world we live in”. I couldn’t agree more.
“I have used the Kind Store for around 2 years. A one stop shop with gifts and everything. I can find things here that I can’t find anywhere else. Packaging is all re-used and recycled.
Also, the owner goes out paddle boarding the rivers and canals close to her litter picking. Great tips and blogs too.”
Ironbridge Eco Bubbles is a shop for eco-friendly, plastic free and vegan friendly products. A family run business whose ethos is to look to a future that depends on us all doing our part to help the planet. They have a wide range of products to support our home, health and happiness.
Lots of eco-friendly products from cleaning to pets, snacks to soaps, plus lots more in between. Online and they have a shop in beautiful Ironbridge, Shropshire too.
” A husband and wife team, online and local to me with a shop at Maws, Ironbridge.
They are fab and have even sourced some glass bottles for me to save me getting them from Amazon. New refill station so you can take a bottle with you for things like shampoo, washing liquid etc.”
Ironbridge Candles produce quality luxury handmade home fragrance products; candles, reed diffusers, room mists, tea lights and more. That is how they began. Now they also have a liquid soap and hand lotion range, both of which leave your skin feeling conditioned and soft. Plus they have a range of artisan made kitchen items, home decor and have a wonderful selection of gift items made from recycled and ethically sourced materials.
” This is a lovely local small business, all made on site at Maws, Ironbridge in Shropshire. The thing I love is that you can take your empty candle container back once you have enjoyed it and get a refill for a discounted price.”
Planet Picnic product range includes reusable sandwich bags, large reusable sandwich bags, mini snack bags, large wraps, cutlery and straw holders and reusable wipes. All products are based around the ethos of creating reusable products from sustainable materials, with every product being made from at least 50% repurposed fabric.
Each product is handmade, they are proudly vegan and are washing machine friendly. Lots of different designs to choose from.
“This lady was one of my guests at The Barn at Lees Farm. Her products are practical, lovely fabrics and all fabric is donated, upcycled etc. I ordered some after she stayed with me. So glad I did as I am really pleased with them.”
I love the 4 shops that Emma has shared, a really useful and lovely selection.

Situated in a very peaceful and beautiful location in Shropshire, a real haven of relaxation away from the stresses of everyday life.

Emma has for the past 3 years been a Superhost on AirBnB. She goes out of her way to make her guests stay relaxing and enjoyable. She also goes out of her way to ensure she is as eco friendly as possible, always looking for sustainable products which are kind to the environment. That is why I asked Emma to share with me her independent online shop recommendations. I knew they would be good ones.
Emma shares lots of lovely ideas and images of here beautiful guest accommodation on here Instagram @emmaatthebarn.
I do hope you have found this selection of eco-friendly & ethical online shops UK, inspiring and useful. I have really enjoyed sharing them with you. It is kind of like one of those “where did you buy that from?” conversations.
I pledge to shop independent as much as I possibly can, for all my shopping needs. Which is why I setup my shopping directory, so we can all find them online, making it easy for us all to #ipledgeindie every single day.
For lots more sustainable and eco friendly products visit my shopping directory, there are lots of sustainable and eco-friendly products on there.
For more product and shop inspiration I have lots of Indie Shops Edits on my blog.
Join me in shopping independent as much as you possibly can, every day, for all your shopping needs. Whether it be local to you or online direct with a UK independent online shop. When you do, why not share the shop and what you bought using #ipledgeindie, so others can be inspired by them too. Tagging me @loveourshopsuk will help me to see it too and I will share all that I can.
Happy browsing and shopping.
Please be aware. Though I mention lots of shops here, you must form your own opinion as to whether their products are for you. All shops are independent as far as I can tell. I am in no way endorsing or recommending these shops. I am simply sharing them with you, so you can form your own opinion around whether to shop with them or not.
