Winners! - Blue Patch Awards
We were really excited to be nominated for the Blue Patch awards and when we found out we'd won we were very happy indeed.
Blue Patch is a community of British people and businesses leading the way in producing quality products, with an emphasise on ethically sourced materials and manufacturing processes.
Their extensive repertoire of recommendations includes ethical jewellery, beautifully tailored clothing, hand-crafted furniture, organic beauty products and freshly harvested foods. When you shop on Blue Patch you’re buying directly from the finest businesses in the British Isles.
We won the New Business Award, which was awesome - especially as we were up against some stiff competition. It was really interesting to be introduced (albeit virtually) to other young businesses which are striving to be more ethically minded and making decisions with their environmental impact in mind.
Bird Sunglasses - Sustainble eyewear with a social purpose. Made from sustainable materials, unique designs and polarised lenses. What we really loved about Bird is that with every pair sold the profits help fund bringing solar power to households in Malawi, Zambia and Uganda - through the Share You Sun partnership with SolarAid.
Davenport Originals - A family run design and manufacturing practice based on the edge of the English Lake District. Specialising in designing and making contemporary furniture, lighting and homewares that are built to last.
Bo Carter - Bo’s vision of fashion is clear: be unique, be bold and most of all be ethical. Ethics and a tough stance against animal cruelty have a special place in Bo’s heart, which is why you won’t find leather, fur or garments made using child labour or exploitation in any of her collections.
We're looking forward to going to the Awards celebration in December at the Christmas pop-up ‘The Original Sustainable Department Store’ in Shoreditch. If you're interested in going - tickets are free and can be ordered from here
