11 stylish eco-friendly and ethical homewares stores | pebble magazine
With a raft of new eco-friendly and ethically minded homewares and accessories stores opening up online, we thought it was about time we shared our favourite spots to shop green, give back and support local businesses and social enterprises. This is eco-chic and conscious consumerism at its finest.
Aerende (meaning ‘care’ in Olde English) is a place for ‘life improving homewares’ and we don’t just mean your life. All of its beautiful, ethical products are made in the UK by people facing social challenges. This is socially valuable shopping and slow living that you just can’t do anywhere else.
Aerende has become known for its natural wool blankets and its pottery, it stocks soap from social enterprise The Soap Co, crafts from surplus Scottish wood and embroidered items from Fine Cell Work who teach prisoners how to sew and quilt.
