9. All Earth Mineral Cosmetics
If you are searching for a cosmetics brand that prioritises the health of your skin along with the welfare of animals and the environment, then All Earth Mineral Cosmetics are a must see.
All Earth Mineral Cosmetics was founded by Julie and Guy, makeup and skincare specialists who had been searching for a brand they could trust. They have a desire to prioritise a skin care range that is:
They spend a long time perfecting the packaging, releasing a sustainable ‘pot for life’ that’s truly beautiful and easy to refill.
They even have an eco swap service where you can send your old plastic makeup containers and even brushes, and they will fully recycle them through Terracycle.
As a result of this success, the brand was awarded the National Health, Beauty & Wellness award for the most eco conscious cosmetics in the UK.
10. By Nala
By Nala is a boutique with a passion for aromatherapy candles and diffusers, but there’s a twist. This eco-friendly store only uses 100% natural ingredients and pure essential oils. That way, their products are better for you, your mental wellbeing and the environment.
Their brand helps promote calm in your life. It is said to aid sleep, relaxation, boost your mood and give you the therapeutic effects of natural scented products.
All their products are hand lovingly made in their Lancashire workshop with sustainability and ethics at their heart.
The next boutique is a bit of a gem. Habulous is a UK based ethical ceramics and pottery brand focused on creating timeless pieces for your home through sustainable practices.
Their range of designs are inspiring, creating contemporary ceramics from traditional methods. Each piece has a character of its own, designed to help us move away from our throw away lifestyle.
If you are searching for a gift, then Habulous might be a good place to start. You’ll be surprised at what you can do with this natural and wonderful material. Oh, and I forgot to mention that they also sell stunning jewellery.
12. Blushberry Botanicals
I love this beautiful boutique. Blushberry Botanicals creates luxury organic cosmetics that are all hand made in small batches using only the finest natural materials.
The founder Lorrain Tait has a deep knowledge and passion for botany and organic ingredients. From her workshop in the North East of Scotland, she has created a wide range of products to truly care for your skin.
Organic cream deodorants, antioxidant clay face masks, lavender hand balms, if you are looking to treat your skin then Blushberry is the place to go.
13. Clean Living
Looking to clean your home with a conscience? Clean Living creates award winning natural cleaning products that are safe to use in your house and non-toxic for the environment.
Their products are all 100% natural and refillable. This means the carbon emissions of Clean Living’s products are much lower than rivals you’d find in the supermarket.
What makes them stand out? Perhaps it’s their mission to create a superior deep clean by harnessing the power of nature. Or possibly it’s their innovative spirit, being the first UK brand to introduce refillable aluminium spray bottles that you can subscribe to.
Whatever it is, their range is natural, Ph neutral, biodegradable, vegan friendly and non-toxic to aquatic life. They also donate 1% of revenue to the Born Free Foundation.
14. Ethical Nutrition Co
Searching for an environmentally conscious boutique with health at their core? Then Ethical Nutrition Co is the brand you’re searching for.

Grace, the founder, created the brand whilst she was searching for high quality supplements that would support her health after suffering from cancer at the age of 15. In her struggle, the vast difference in the quality of food supplements became all too apparent. Few brands seemed to do things the right way.
Whatever supplement you need, from collagen to Vitamin D to your standard multi-vit, it’s likely they’ve got it.
Bookshop.org is on a mission to help support local, independent bookshops.
Whilst Bookshop.org is a fantastic way to discover books that are trending or find novels you’d never heard of, they have a special secret that makes them even more of a treasure.
Each independent bookshop selling on the site will receive almost all of the profits. In total, Bookshop.org gives away over 75% of its profit margin to local boutiques. That’s helped it become a certified B-Corp. In other words, you can guarantee they have the highest social and environmental standards.
Gone are the days of big corporations, Bookshop.org is helping give power back to local independent bookshops that are sadly dying out.
So this boutique is a little different, but one I can’t recommend highly enough.
16. Hairy Jayne
A boutique that prioritises your hair, finally! Hairy Jayne sells a range of specialist hair care products that moisturise, protect and nourish your hair. Their products are also sulphate free, cruelty free and formulated with natural ingredients to promote head health.
Jayne is perhaps the most qualified person to produce hair care products. After years of hairdressing in award winning salons, she decided to branch out after becoming frustrated at the number of women struggling to maintain healthy looking nourished hair.
Inspired by nature, reducing our reliance on plastic through refills and biodegradable pouches, and opting for cruelty free, Jayne’s crowning glory produces fragrances you won’t want to miss out on.
17. KOHA Beauty
Dreaming of a more sustainable world where ethical beauty products are the norm? Well KOHA Beauty might help you realise this dream.

The boutique is set up around three core values: mindfulness, sustainability and artisanship. They want you to experience the satisfaction of creating something beautiful with your own hands. Each stitch, brush stroke or drop of perfume should be carefully considered and comforting.
Every kit is also made with the environment in mind, ethically designed and assembled in their London studio without any unnecessary packaging.
19. Emilie O’Connor
Emilie O’Connor specialises in stunning tableware. Whether you’re looking for beautiful bamboo picnic sets, cups, plates, or bowls, Emilie creates what you won’t forget.
Each of these beautiful products are sustainably sourced from bamboo, one of the fastest growing and most eco friendly materials. Still conscious of her impact, Emilie donates 5% of profits to Surfers Against Sewage, to help restore the oceans to their full glory.
And you can see the importance of the deep blue in her designs, with inspirations of the sea shining through in each lovingly crafted product.
Looking for a new bag, purse or backpack that’s sustainable and made through ethical practices. Who isn’t?
Kula is an eco friendly boutique that’s committed to using sustainably sourced materials to develop eco friendly accessories. No animal based leathers are used to make their bags.

21. Little Box of Love
Here’s one I think you might like. Little Box of Love sends gift boxes brimming with passion and containing items from UK businesses which share the same desire for zero waste consumption.
Best sellers include pamper gift boxes, a men’s gift box, and a cosy night in. If you have a special occasion fast approaching, such as valentines, a birthday, or an anniversary, then maybe you should check out their range.
22. The Teaspoon Club
The Teaspoon Club was invented from a need to find fresh herbs and spices, full of flavour as if harvested yesterday. This seemed impossible to find, especially from an ethical source.
The majority of spices are sourced from certified organic suppliers. All products are also sent in plant based plastic packaging, labels are printed using recycled paper, and the brand is completely waste free.
What’s more, to avoid unnecessary waste or bulk packs losing their flavour on the shelf, The Teaspoon Club sells spices in tailored quantities that you need.
What’s better than zero waste packaging? Refillable packaging that you can return to the store, zero hassle. And of course, a tree is planted for every order made through their online ethical store.
23. Little Imp
There are hundreds of ethical jewellers out there, so it’s hard to pick a favourite. Little Imp is one of mine.
Their designs are versatile. Simple geometries alongside bold statement pieces. Timeless classics made with care and attention, yet still with a flare that makes them sing. Designed to be at home when worn with your favourite t-shirt or when dressing to impress.
They’ve worked hard to have as little impact on the planet as possible. All items are handmade. No harmful chemicals are added and only recycled metals are used. Packaging is of course recycled in a further bid to reduce their impact on the environment.
24. Nouare Jewellery
Another jeweller doing it right is Nouare. Their range is timeless, minimalist and versatile, whilst not losing the creative shimmer that you expect.
Every piece of jewellery is considered part of their eco aware collection, made using recycled silver to reduce the need for virgin materials. Natural inspirations shine through in both their designs and the strong ethos of the brand.
Scene is a skincare brand which dedicates itself to vegan, natural and organic ingredients. Handmade in Cornwall and in 100% paper packaging, you can find all skincare products you might want. From magnesium deodorant to soothing lip, body and hand balms.
Only the highest quality natural ingredients are used, with every element chosen for their healing properties and soothing benefits they bring to the skin. And of course, all products are eco-friendly and good for the environment. Packaging is fully plastic free, fully compostable and recyclable. They even generate their own power through solar panels on the roof.
26. Battle Green
With its roots in the beautiful Snowdonia mountains of North Wales, Battle Green offers a range of eco-friendly alternatives to everyday items. It’s purpose is to help you cut down on single use plastic.
They offer a range of products, from essential toiletries to sustainable gift wrap. However my favourites are the gift boxes for him or her.
All of their products are vegan friendly, handmade and cruelty free. They are packaged in recycled card, which you have the choice to opt out of at checkout. Postage is even plastic free, compostable and recycled.
27. Linen and Stripes
Are you on a mission to make your home look as sleek and stylish using only natural products? If you’ve answered yes, then Linen and Stripes might be the eco-friendly boutique for you.
They hand make cushions, sheets, and duvet covers using the world around them for inspiration. Trust me when I say the results are eye-catching.
Reconnect with nature through their organic, modern and minimalist pillowcases. Add colour and calm to your bedroom, or life to your living room.
28. Shoreline Shaving
Shoreline Shaving is on a mission to provide the cleanest shave on the planet. How will they achieve this? By ridding shaving of disposable plastic whilst still providing the ultimate shaving experience.
Shoreline specialise in eco friendly shaving products for both men and women. Every product is 100% plastic free and vegan, giving you a sustainable shave without any red blotches. The brand goes further than providing an eco shave, they also donate to Surfers Against Sewage and Ocean Cleanup.
29. Konk Furniture
Here’s an eco-friendly boutique with a bit of a twist. Konk Furniture is a design studio and workshop where some of the most curated and bespoke pieces of furniture are hand crafted.
Each item is built for life. The solid wood is designed to last for generations, comes from sustainably managed forests, and of course, a tree is planted with every order.
Everything is handmade by a small team in Bristol. Their designs are so good that they have even won the Bristol Life Awards for Homes and Interiors.
Want something a little smaller? Whilst they do sell most items, from tables and chairs to bookcases and beds, they also have smaller items like hand crafted wooden chopping boards. So don’t overlook this great find.
30. The Sustainable Watch Company
If you are looking for a boutique that sells something a little smaller, The Sustainable Watch Company might be a hidden brand you’ve been seeking.
Each watch is lovingly hand crafted from recycled natural wood furniture. This not only is good for the planet, giving old furniture a new life, but designs are also unique.
Not only is the design stylish, but the eco-friendly credentials are unparalleled. 100kg of carbon is offset with every order placed, double that generated by each item. They help fund sustainable reforestation and their workforce is climate positive. As it says on their website, they have certainly helped buy mother nature some time.
Panda is where you should head if looking for the highest quality bedding and sleep accessories. Why? Well, not only do they have an incredible range that will suit your every need, but their products are also made from bamboo.
Bamboo is a sustainable material with a lot of advantages. It’s incredibly fast growing, requires much less water than cotton and doesn’t need pesticides or chemicals to grow. But you can’t forget another key advantage of bamboo, it’s a highly luxurious and soft material, perfect for bedding. I dare you not to find it comfortable.
