Local Honey, donated by Stathe Beekeeper, Eric McLaughlin
ECOVER "This is about more than fresh socks and squeaky-clean pots. This is about respecting the planet and looking out for nature. This is about fixing our waste culture and making an impact on our impact. Every basket of laundry and stack of dishes is a chance to shake the status quo. Because we need system change, not climate change. And together we can roll up our freshly laundered sleeves and get this revolution on the road." Check out their web site HERE
Athelney Soaps . . . "are handmade in small batches on the Somerset Levels using plant ingredients. Our aim is to make soaps with ingredients that are as natural as possible and will always be either Vegetarian friendly or Vegan friendly. Athelney Soaps are made using the traditional ‘Cold Process’ method and are poured and cut by hand. We take great care to make every bar special." Check out their web site HERE
Marcel’s Green Soap "I was inspired by my three daughters. They said, "Dad, the things you do aren't actually that good for the planet and what the world will look like in 10, 20 years." I had previously had a career at Unilever and large corporations like that. I stopped working there so I could make a more personal impact on the world for good . Everyone has to clean their house every day, and I think that this can be done a lot more sustainably and positively. I founded Marcel’s Green Soap, to use only biodegradable ingredients and packed in 100% recycled plastic. We started in The Netherlands, but we are now located throughout Western Europe."

Gruum " . . . we’re pretty concerned about the impact that big business operations and plastic packaging have on the world around us.
We wanted to give our customers the reassurance that not only do we understand our responsibility to reduce our impact on planet Earth and its inhabitants, but that our commitment to the environment is at the forefront of every single decision we make; from where we manufacture our products, right down to the design of our packaging.
When it comes to our products, the majority are manufactured for us right here in the UK. And when we do need to source our products internationally, we transport using shipping freight, to help keep our carbon emissions as low as possible." Check out their web site HERE
Faith In Nature "What we find is that, as in Nature, there is an ever shifting balance to maintain — and that requires ecological thinking. A constant reassessment of what ‘sustainability’ means today. There is no such thing as ‘best’. Only ‘best for now’. Below is our best-for-now — but behind the scenes, we’re always working on our best-for-tomorrow." Check out their web site HERE
Serious Soaps and Serious Tissues "Serious Tissues are made from 100% recycled paper - no trees are harmed in the making of this product. We use recycled paper - from newspapers, cereal boxes, etc. - instead of bamboo because the carbon footprint is smaller and we don’t have to ship the bamboo from China. We’re produced in the UK."
