Welcome to 2014!
Winter is well and truly upon us, and for some this time of year coupled with a reluctant return to work can create a post-Christmas gloominess. On the other hand, the new year can be a time of revival and optimism for the future. Sales of fair trade products continue to rise, renewable energy is playing a more prominent role in our economy and consumer demand for companies to adopt more ethical policies remains high on the agenda. There is clearly more work to be done but there are positive signs and opportunities for the green economy as the UK market picks up. January is a great time to pick up bargains, save money and help the planet!
Ethical Superstore are currently running a January sale offering up to 50% off a wide range of items including clothing, homeware, household goods and coffee plus much more. It's a great time to bag yourself a bargain and help fair trade suppliers and the planet at the same time! They're also giving away free items on purchases such as a FREE Ecover Fabric Conditioner when you spend £30 or more.
Green People provide natural beauty and skincare products for the whole family. They are currently offering a range of detox products to beat the post-Christmas fatigue as well as a range of 2 for 1 offers across a range of products. Again, a great time to look and feel better whilst saving money.
People Tree offer sustainable and fair trade fashion at very reasonable prices. Many of their clothing ranges are unique and not available on the High Street. They are currently offering a massive 60% off a wide range of clothing items across January.
Spirit of Nature have been delivering natural, organic and earth-friendly baby products to happy customers across the UK for over a decade. Check out their best-selling eco-disposable nappies and organic babycare, or treat yourself to something for mum. They are currently offering up to 50% off in their January sale.
Myakka offer beautiful, unique fair trade furniture that is truly stylish and different. They are currently having a winter sale with 50% off a wide range of furniture. Its an especially good time to grab a bargain if you have just moved house or in the process of upgrading your living room.
If you have received a new phone or upgraded your old phone over Christmas remember to recycle your old one. Mobile phones contain materials which are toxic when they start to seep into the soil in landfills sites. Protect the environment and earn some extra cash instead.
