Sustainability is a hot topic right now, we are all challenged to do our bit for our planet. As many of you are aware, as a consumer, the more we buy the more we add to our world. This is a fact of our world, however, if we are going to consume, choosing local and eco-conscious companies is a step in the right direction.
Sustainable products don't have to compromise on quality, they just use innovative ideas to make sure they offer a way for us to do our bit. They take the option of recyclable packaging, electric transport for delivery, the creative list goes on. I am a huge fan of second hand and reusing what we already have, however, this isn't always possible. So choosing a company that has the same values as you is a leap in the right direction.
Full disclaimer, trying to buy everything sustainable sometimes isn't always possible and that's okay. Doing the little things that contribute is a great start, if we all make little swaps and changes, we can make a greater change.
So, here are a few wonderful companies run by lovely people who I have found throughout my searches that I think you will really like.
I stumbled across this company through a recommendation from my mum and sister, they were on a search for a new deodorant that had a low impact on our planet and actually worked. Ta-dah... Wild was welcomed into our household with open arms.
After devouring their website, scrolling through their values with a huge smile, I was over the moon to find an innovative company that doesn't cost the earth... literally.
Whether it's a one-off buy or a monthly subscription, the reusable aluminium and recycled plastic case hold's your deliciously smelling deodorant free from parabens, aluminium or sulphates. Delivered in minimal, recyclable packaging, this wonderful vegan and cruelty-free deodorant has it all. It's not sticky, hurrah, it lasts all day and is so easy to use.

Holding their product in a bioplastic tube made from sugarcane, Nuud knocks the ball out of the park for originality. As part of a subscription or one-off purchase, their deodorant contains no nasties and is effective for 3-7 days. I loved this product, it was so smooth on my skin and extremely easy to apply. I've used this product for the best part of the year, tried it through gym workouts, horse riding, throughout the summer and it stood the test of time.
Its sustainably produced and distributed, vegan, cruelty-free and with only 10 simple ingredients, it's a crowd-pleaser.

Stumbling across this wonderful brand on Instagram, I was obsessed with their values, ethos and products. From using coffee grounds from London coffee shops in their products to their innovative packaging that reduces further waste, the wonderful people at this company really are on a mission to make a difference. They are here to fight waste, taking others unusable's and turning them into gorgeous skincare... pure genius in my eyes.
Their face balm, toner and moisturiser are a staple in my skincare routine every day, I'm obsessed. I recently got their plastic-free razor, this is literally life changing. Their natural ingredients, cruelty-free and vegan range is delicious on your skin and bank balance. Some of their wonderful products are even available in participating Sainsburys, could they get any better?
