Our stockists deserve the spotlight

September 28, 2020

There’s no question that moves need to be made in order to save our planet and push against the decline that we see happening to our environment. We are so proud of the Iron and Velvet community. Our stockists are constantly looking at ways they can be more sustainable. Whether it’s using eco-friendly packaging, being involved in carbon offset programmes, taking part in clean up days or donating profits etc. We are always learning from them and I am sure you will as well.

A handful of our stockists that we are spotlighting this month :

Friendly Turtle

This company is named Friendly Turtle because the founder is an avid diver. He has witnessed first-hand plastic pollution in the oceans and the effects it has on wildlife. Not only does this business make plastic free options more accessible they also donate 5% of all profits annually to The Marine Conservation Society!

&Keep

As if running a sustainable business is not enough the owners of &Keep are public speakers educating people on plastic pollution. Natasha is a Eco Schools Green Flag Assessor and a Keep Britain Tidy #litterheros Ambassador. On top of that they regularly donate to charitable organisations.
