Ethical & Sustainable Food and Drinks
Organic and fair trade are awesome – but exploitation and waste is still rife, and hideously well hidden… Here’s your guide to ethical food.
Food, glorious food!
Some eat far too much, while others struggle for nutrients. The world of food is a mess. Let's try fixing it
In a perfect world, we’d all be vegans eating completely organic food with zero waste. Unfortunately there’s just too many humans for that, and to feed almost 8 billion people, industrial farming is a necessity.
Until we get to utopia, we’re going to have to figure out the best ways to utilise soils, freight and packaging to get the right food to all of us.

We’re passionate about products with a cause. Ethical and sustainable means to have as little environmental impact as possible. It means cruelty free, it means slavery free, and it means regenerative.
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.

Climate anxiety is real. Human rights helplessness is real. Here’s how to take a moment.
It’s not easy managing a sustainable pantry, particularly limiting waste and your carbon footprint. It actually requires a tonne of research and scrutiny, which quite frankly takes time.
That’s where we come in.
We’re here to make your life easier by thoroughly vetting and reviewing these products so that you can save time.
We look into some of the worst contributors to climate change, as well as items which result in human rights abuses. Alternatively, we look for products that are actively making change in these fields, and are making the world a healthier place.
