Reduce your carbon footprint in a pair of trainers from Allbirds

“Nature from head to toe” – trailblazing brand, Allbirds, are strides ahead of many other footwear companies in terms of sustainability. Roughly 57% of footwear and 64% of apparel is made from synthetic materials. Allbirds favours renewable, natural materials like ethically sourced wool. Where natural alternatives are not possible, they’ve innovated new materials like SweetFoam® or used recycled materials. For example, their laces are made of recycled plastic bottles!

Wrap up in wool that looks after animals and farmers at COS

One company who has taken charge of their environmental responsibility is COS. Not only future thinking in terms of style, but they are also leading the trend for using materials that protect animals and the people who farm them. So far in 2021, 86% of their materials were sustainably sourced or made from recycled materials, and they won’t stop until all their garments are ethical and environmentally friendly.

Recycle old textiles and beauty products at & Other Stories

A super eco-friendly initiative that everyone should know about is the recycling reward scheme at & Other Stories. All you need to do is bring your old textiles (not just ones you’ve bought from the store) or empty beauty containers and you get a 10% thank you treat to spend in store! It pays to look after the environment. Read more here.

Read up on how we can all do our bit with Stanfords

With the climate change talks taking place this month, Stanfords has put together their recommended environmental reads. They have a great selection of books to stay up to date and offer ideas on what we can do to help the planet! Discover their recommendations here.

Tuck into seasonal dishes at Bill’s and Maison Bab

What better way to welcome November than with a delicious seasonal dish at Bill’s? This mouth-watering beetroot and glazed goat’s cheese risotto tastes every bit as good as it looks. It uses all seasonal ingredients, which helps support the environment because they use less energy for artificial heating, lighting or refrigeration, and reduces the need for importation and storage. Have a look at their menu here.

Maison Bab is also supporting sustainability with their menu. A quarter of their dishes are vegan-friendly, and they’re planting a tree for every Dirty Vegan Bab sold! Whether you’re a vegan, veggie, or looking to try a meat-free day, why not try one of their tasty vegan options and contribute to their efforts.
