11 UK Eco Brands You Should Know About

You can’t switch the news on without a story about global warming, ocean plastic, fossil fuels and sustainability. The planet is in the midst of a climate crisis, so it’s never been more crucial to choose eco-friendly brands when you shop online.

The eleven best UK Eco Brands you should know about.

If you purchase goods regularly from the UK and ship internationally, you need a way to reduce your carbon footprint. One way to do that is by buying eco-friendly products from sustainable brands.Here are eleven UK eco brands you need to consider:

1. Selfmade Candle

While only a relatively new brand (launched during lockdown when the founder taught herself how to make candles), it’s been a massive hit in its relatively short life span. Every candle is hand-poured using essential oils and soy wax. And when your candle burns out, clean out the jar, fill it with soil, add the seeds that are inside the label and watch it grow.

Oh, and 5% of all sales go to Black Minds Matter, a free mental health service for black families and individuals.

It’s a no-brainer.

2. Who Gives A Crap

Best. Name. Ever.

You won’t find a funnier one on our UK Eco Brands list, that’s for sure!

But all jokes aside, this UK brand really does give a crap.

Their toilet paper is made from bamboo, a fast-growing, sustainable material (if Panda’s love it, it can’t be bad!). What’s more, 50% of their profits go towards building toilets in countries where people don’t have access to clean sanitation.

3. Clean Living

Clean Living aims to help reduce and replace plastic in household cleaning products with eco-friendly alternatives. Their bottles are made from aluminium (aluminum if you’re in the US) which are delivered empty along with a sachet of cleaning product.

All you do is empty the contents of the sachet into the bottle, add water and you’re ready to go.

You can also return the sachets, but if you’re outside the UK, that might not be possible.

4. The Body Shop

The most recognisable name on our list, The Body Shop, have been against animal testing and sustainable products since its inception in 1976. They run an independently verified fair-trade programme that invests in environmental and social products.

And as for their products?

Well, you’ll struggle to find much better quality than their soap, makeup, body butter and creams – many of which come in recyclable packaging.

5. Pangaia

Pangaia’s sustainable joggers, sweatshirts, and loungewear were bestsellers during lockdown, thanks to their social media marketing campaign. They use recycled fabrics, plastic bottles and natural dyes in their products, so nothing goes to waste.

And if that wasn’t enough, each order you make is shipped in compostable packaging.

6. Allbirds

Allbirds make and sell comfy, environmentally friendly shoes and sneakers you’d be mad to miss out on. They’re open and transparent, with regular announcements about their carbon footprint and emissions data. And they document every stage of their supply chain, so you can see they have nothing to hide.

Put a pair of Allbirds on your feet, and you’ll take steps towards a more sustainable, greener future for the planet.

7. Turtle Bags

Using a ‘Bag for Life’ helps us to reduce single-use plastic bags that inevitably end up in landfill or the ocean. So, to find a bag for life you’ll want to carry around, look no further than Turtle Bags.

They have some cool options that’ll become a firm favourite to take with you when picking up your groceries. And with 10% of its profits going to the Marine Conservation Fund, you’re going to help the planet with every purchase.

DAME is the world leader in sustainable period products and was the first to launch a reusable tampon. And that’s a huge deal because it’s saved almost 3 million single-use tampons from being thrown away.

But it’s not just tampons. DAME also sells period cups, pants, pads, organic tampons and tampon applicators – all toxin and plastic-free.


9. Nudie Jeans

Nudie’s jeans and skirts are made from sustainable materials, and every part of their supply chain is transparent. So, they tell you everything, from where the materials were sourced right through to manufacturing and shipping.

It’s one of the fastest-growing denim brands on the market, and that they’re eco-friendly, too, is a massive bonus.

10. Trash Planet

Trash Planet sneakers are an absolute game-changer, with every pair they sell 100% vegan-friendly. Around 75% of the materials used are recycled, and for every pair sold, the company plants fifteen trees.

Their designs are also limited in number, so you’re unlikely to see anyone you know wearing them, which is pretty important for those who pride themselves on being a trendsetter.

11. UpCircle

UpCircle beauty products are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free, with many ingredients reused and recycled from products you wouldn’t expect, like coffee and tea. They’re 99% plastic-free and if you spend over £40 on their website, you get 20% off your order (which is a great incentive, not that you need one).
