I find buying sustainable, ethical shoes in Ireland an absolute nightmare. It seems that either you go for vegan plastic or biodegradable leather. I’ve know canvas shoes are in vogue at the moment and I’d happily chance a pair of canvas trainers in showery Ireland but not a pair of canvas pumps – too risky! To […]
When you start a new endeavour you typically need to invest a lot of time and money initially. But as time passes you become more accomplished and informed, and more efficient and affective, and more economical in how you spend your time and your money.

Here are a few swimwear companies that may offer a more ethical, sustainable option than your high street. The first two consider the sustainability of the materials […]

Is it just me or do clothes wear out way to quickly? Maybe I’m just hard on them. I dread having to replace them because sourcing ethical sustainable clothing on a budget is no easy thing. Throw in wanting to try things on before you buy and it’s impossible! I continually scoure charity shops for […]
We’ve been using soapnuts to wash our clothes for about a year and at first i was a total convert; loving the idea of washing our clothes with something that was 100% natural. Overtime we found that our clothes didn’t smell the freshest, particularly on overcast days – which we have a lot of in […]
