Meet the Brands

The brands we work with share our goal of working towards a greener future, by using only the most natural of ingredients and recyclable/biodegradable packaging.  We also try to hand pick UK companies to reduce the carbon emissions of shipping/air freighting the products to the UK, as this can also have a negative impact on our planet.

Our products aren’t just vegan, or cruelty-free, or made by people paid a living wage, without using plastic, parabens, SLS, phthalates or triclosan. 

They’re all of these things. 

PROUD WINNERS!

We are delighted to have been awarded The Green Parent Natural Beauty Award 2019.
The Green Parent Magazine are very passionate about recognising the good work of companies whose heart and soul is poured into creating wonderful ethical products.

Actually natural
Not all ‘natural’ toothpastes are what they claim to be. Many still use synthetic ingredients like SLS and Triclosan – that we end up ingesting. At Georganics, we only use pure, natural and organic ingredients for all of our products. This means that we are able to look you straight in the eye when we tell you that this is oral care done naturally.

Sustainable
All of our products are hand-crafted in small batches. They are made from natural ingredients that are sourced as locally as possible. Our packaging is specifically designed to produce no waste to avoid clogging up landfill sites. This way, you can take care of your oral hygiene safe in the knowledge that you are doing well by the planet.

Conscientious
Where possible, all of our ingredients are ethically sourced and organic or food grade. At the heart of our business is our impact on the planet so we keep our environmental footprint low. We do not test on animals, and most of our products are suitable for vegans. Our sense of fairness also stretches beyond our products, as we are proud to be a living wage employer.

Do you know the feeling when tasting something really delicious, (it could be a dense chocolate brownie or a peanut butter rye bread sandwich, ripe mangoes or freshly picked berries) and you just have to share that goodness it with everybody, so that they can enjoy as much as you? Yes! When we discovered yoga and meditation we felt exactly like you, when tasting something beyond good, we just had to share these practices with you!

Will Fisher and Malene Vedel started Complete Unity Yoga after being shocked that the majority of yoga and meditation equipment available was plastic heavy, poorly made and lacking style!

We are dedicated to YOU our customers and worldwide community and will continue to enrich lives through the medium of our products and yoga retreats. Thank you for reading and being you!

As a company we are conscious of our impact on the planet. Recent television documentaries have inspired a culture shift which has brought the war against plastic to the forefront of our minds. We are only too aware that our beautiful oceans are awash with plastic and horrified that over 18 million tonnes of waste are thrown away in the UK each year, much of which is unrecyclable or non-biodegradable. Our legacy for generations to come.

Thanks to education and social awareness, we are all making a conscious effort to ‘do our bit’ in our homes, recycling our waste where we can and considering our plastic use and here at Something Different Wholesale we already make a conscious effort to use biodegradable bubble wrap and recycled cardboard in our packaging. We continuously work with our suppliers to educate them on environmental impact and support them as they review how they pack our goods using less plastic and more sustainable material

At Something Different we proudly support several charities and social projects around the world. These causes include the RSPCA Llys Nini branch which receives a minimum 20p donation for every item sold from our exclusive Paws and Claws range. At Something Different we’re committed to purchasing products that are produced with fair working conditions, safe production facilities and fair pay for workers. Look out for our ethical sourcing sticker on our products.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

A staggering amount of waste is created every day and the environment is paying the price. Polluted water, sea life swimming in plastic and deforestation terrorising wildlife.

Our founder Tom started Plastic Phobia while at university to do something about these problems. Sustainable buying is achievable. We send out orders in zero waste packaging and a tree is planted per order. Our charity partner plants fruit tree farms in Africa and trains locals to manage the farm with sustainable practices.

The actual products are designed to be re-usable or to break down easily. It’s lots of small easy changes that add up and reduce our footprint on this planet. For really we are only overseeing this planet until we pass it onto our children.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Zero Waste Maker had its beginning in January 2018, created by Oktavia who is a costume maker by day. She made it her mission to source unwanted fabrics that would have been destined to go to landfill.

It is our firm believe here at The Zero Waste Maker, that fabric is a beautiful and valuable resource that deserves to be used to its fullest potential possible. Therefore we recycle any fabric we get, made from various different fibres to ensure there is no unnecessary fabric waste. Aesthetic and thoughtful design are of great importance to make every product beautiful and a joy to use and more importantly to RE-use.

We also make products from organic cotton to provide piece of mind for our customers with sensitive skin and other needs.

Living Naturally, the 1st Soapnut Apothecary in the world! Award-winning, Biodynamic Skincare, Haircare and Laundry Soap for sensitive skin, created with certified organic wild-crafted Soapnuts.

Both our children had eczema, and at the age of 2 our oldest was diagnosed with Autism. In our case, we learned that we needed to keep it simple. We did this by eliminating certain foods and toxins from our diet and our lives, trying to live a more mindful and cruelty-free life and teaching our children about how and why to make these choices.

As part of our radical (to some) natural lifestyle change, we were introduced to Soapnuts as a possible solution for eczema by a few family members, and began using them to clean everything in the house. When we saw the eczema getting better we realised how amazing these ancient soapy fruits were!

We founded Living Naturally and started selling soapnuts in 2009. We knew we couldn't be the only ones looking for a more natural, organic, biodegradable, hypoallergenic, sustainable and an environmentally friendly answer to cleaning the house, clothes and everything else in between.

We have since developed a wide-range of award-winning vegan soapnut product lines, which are produced by our family-owned business based in the UK. We have combined a real need and love of what we do, expert herbalist & skincare knowledge, and Ayurvedic principles to create these products.

Hi! We are Alina and Bogdan Gruia. 2 individuals passionate about the world we live in. We love walks, bike rides, boat trips, pretty much anything and everything that involves us not being inside. During a recent family holiday we realised that everywhere we go, there is rubbish. And all of it is plastic packaging. This changed our lives instantly. We know that this is not sustainable anymore and if we don't do something, we will drown in plastic and all the things we love, will be gone SOON!

So we started changing the way we use plastic and packaging. This lead to this idea of trying to convince more and more people to re-use and refuse as much as they can, and if they have to go single use, at least to use natural, compostable or recyclable materials.

Join us in our journey to try to reduce the amount of single use plastics used in our lives.

The idea for elmkind came about some years ago.. Emma & Alex were already running an Eco-friendly cleaning company in Devon 'CleanEco' at the time (and currently still are) the company needed to buy in a lot of plant based, earth friendly products on a regular basis to keep up with the work. They took a good look at everything they were buying in and were quite shocked to realise the amount of plastic that comes with buying 'Eco-friendly' products, even if you buy concentrated refills in bulk which they did, there was no avoiding it! 

They thought there must be a way of still having the ecological products but without having to contribute to the stockpiles of plastic we have on this earth already... and if they couldn't find a current solution and a way around this, then they were determined to create one.

They sought out alternatives to plastic bottles and weighed out the pros and cons of each available material, as well as searching for the very best local organic, natural ingredients and both agreed that they would only use the most environmentally friendly resources that are currently available, paired with only natural ingredients to make their final products, so that ultimately they could make their cleaning company have as little impact on the earth as possible... and in steps 'elmkind', kind to the environment, kind to our homes & kind to our families using them.

 

The current range of available products not only smell amazing but also work incredibly well and look extremely stylish in the home too. #Winning!

Waves

 

As a company who puts the environment first, our values play a great deal in the manufacturing of our natural rubber flip flops. But, what exactly are the values that make Waves a company you can always trust?

Ethics

In case you hadn’t realised, we’re a caring bunch here at Waves. As well as looking after you and the environment, that caring nature guarantees that we put ethics at the heart of our production processes. That’s why we source all our natural rubber from Fair Trade Sri Lankan rubber farms and we are certified by the Fair Rubber Association. When you buy a pair of our flip flops, you can therefore rest easy knowing exactly where they came from. On top of that, customers can feel good in the knowledge that every single Waves purchase supports Sri Lankan rubber farming communities, allowing them to achieve sustainable and safe livelihoods.

 

Environment, Comfort, Provenance

Did we mention that we’re big on the environment? It’s kind of our thing actually, and our natural rubber flip flops are championing the cause.

Nothing’s worse than a pair of flip flops that cuts your toes in two within seconds. We understand your pain, which is why we also create flip flops with customer comfort in mind.

We care a great deal about where our natural rubber comes from. That much is evident in our focus on fair rubber production, but it’s something we prove again with our values of provenance. Every single one of our flip flops is sourced from Sri Lankan rubber trees. That natural rubber is then treated and crafted into flip flops for your feet to enjoy. Not only does that guarantee ethical sourcing, but it also means you can always rely on the high quality of our flip flops.

Zero Waste Path Logo

 

At the beginning of 2016, I (Bianca) decided to try to create less waste after reading an article about US blogger Lauren Singer and her trash jar. Giulio decided to join me in this zero waste life attempt just a couple of months later, and when we moved in together shortly after, we committed ourselves to try to live as sustainably as we could. This does not mean that we do all that can possibly be done - rather, we believe that as perfection is impossible, doing your best with what you have and what you feel comfortable with is the way to go!

Along the way of this journey we started making more and more of our products, and as we learned more about ingredients, processes and materials we started flirting with the idea of opening an online shop.

One of the main drivers behind Zero Waste Path is that it is usually very hard to find information about the waste that happens before a product gets to the consumer, and this is also true for many sustainable products. We therefore decided to create a company that wasn’t zero waste and sustainable only in the final packaging, but all along the production chain. We are huge fans of transparency, and we share all of our waste, practices and decisions on our  our Instagram and Facebook pages, and here on our website!

Since the opening of our company on February 2018 until approximately 6 months later, we have both worked on it relentlessly, while I was pursuing my Master in Environmental Sustainability in Edinburgh and Giulio was working elsewhere. Now that I'm done with my Master Degree and Giulio has started his PhD, I am running ZWP full time with the support of our awesome ZWP team! Of course, still having Giulio's support and help in his free time.

We don't outsource anything - we manufacture all of our products in our workshop, we carefully select our suppliers and take care of every aspect of what we do. This is because we prefer to have direct control over as many aspects of our company as possible, and because we want to invest every earning in making more and better products and in providing a better service to all of you!  In addition to this, as both of us are vegan and zero waste (well, trying!), you know that we will spend our profits in a responsible way with a focus on sustainability, human and animal welfare!

You're So Kind Logo 

 

We are a social enterprise, we make sustainable, ethical hand wash and donate 100% of our profit to five charities in the UK. 

The world can sometimes seem a terrible place, the gap between rich and poor keeps getting bigger, climate change threatens to end life as we know it and more people are taking their lives between the ages of 25 and 45 than are being killed by accident or illness.

With so much power in the hands of a few people and institutions, it's natural to sometimes feel powerless, and so we want to empower you.

We've founded You're So Kind with one goal in mind: kindness, to yourself and to others.

Our products are ethically made, and we source the best organic ingredients so that you can also be kind to yourself. 

By changing your buying habits, you can ensure that profit is going to the right place, to those most in need.

 So make a small change, You're So Kind.

Very few people know it, but last year marked a somewhat dubious 30th anniversary: the birth of the modern single-use “paper” cup. In three short decades, we estimate that over 3 trillion of them have ended up in landfill. Oh, in case you’re wondering, that’s 3,000,000,000,000.

The average lifespan of a single-use cup is less than 10 minutes – and due to their plastic content less than 1% will be recycled.

So, in what could only be described as the understatement of the century, in 2014 we felt there was an appetite for change!

That’s why we created Ecoffee Cup.

 

In this enlightened era, it’s never been easier to Choose to Re-use.
