When it comes to handbags, we look at the new types of leather and materials used to make sustainable bags
Recycled materials and faux leather are red hot in handbags at the moment. But is reusing plastic and nylon products the way to go? Are there more sustainable and ethical products out there? Is fake leather that much more ethical?
In one of the most greenwashed industries, finding the right stuff can be painfully hard. Knowing if products are organic, non-toxic and pay a liveable wage – it can be overwhelming!
We’re trying our best to add transparency where there is none, and to find the companies, suppliers and brands doing it right
And it’s no longer just about not doing any harm! It’s also about providing a positive contribution, and actually leaving things better than you found it. That’s what ethical, social and sustainable business is about.
We’re making sure that we’re not just throwing words like ‘eco’ and ‘green’ around lightly. The household products we’ll be featuring on this website are ones that have been thoroughly investigated. They’re products that we look at with a somewhat critical lens to make sure they’re making a net positive contribution to people and planet.
It’s still early days for us (we only set up late 2020) but you can find plenty more about us on our Instagram page.

Ethics and stuff looks long and hard at the brands who are doing things right. Brands that are leading the charge in slow fashion, and producing sustainable materials and products.
It’s not easy sifting through the marketing tactics employed by large corporations. Many of these new and exciting materials just don’t live up to the hype.
We’ll be reviewing and rating as many brands as we can find so that you can make the most informed choice when buying ethical clothes & footwear.
