Whether you’re planning an interiors project, or would like to make more sustainable changes in other parts of your life, these days most of us would prefer to shop with companies that offer green credentials.
But it can be really tricky to know what’s genuine… and what’s ‘greenwash’! While we’d all like to make more environmentally friendly choices, it can take a lot of time and research to find brands and businesses that share the same green ethos.
So we were delighted when we found an organisation called Blue Patch. It’s a directory for UK & Irish businesses from a whole variety of sectors – from fashion and home to food and leisure. The difference is that each business has proven green credentials.
In short, Blue Patch enables you, the customer, to browse different sectors on its website to find genuinely eco friendly businesses.
‘We believe that positive change is driven by small steps which add up to make a difference. We also believe in the power of the collective, that together we can achieve great things.’
And as a social enterprise, all of their surplus profit goes towards supporting our members and investing in renewable energy. How great is that!
So whether you’re looking for zero emissions logistics, environmentally friendly children’s toys or, ahem, an eco paint brand, you will find the business for you in the Blue Patch directory, knowing that each brand has met their criteria for sustainability and quality.
