Frank & Faith
Frank & Faith is the socially conscious clothing label launched in Autumn 2006 by fashion designer and buyer, Faith and her Chartered Accountant husband, Frank. Their founding philosophy is that their clothes look beautiful and fashionable but are manufactured in an ethical and sustainable way.
Frank & Faith clothes will always use organic, recycled or sustainable yarns and fabrics, be made ethically, and - with equal importance - will always be fashionable.
After working for many years for some of the biggest high street fashion retailers Faith decided there must be a more ethical and socially beneficial way of producing and manufacturing affordable fashion-savvy clothing.
Frank & Faith's aim is to produce clothing ethically by manufacturing in Britain. The usage of their "Made in Britain" label further promotes locally produced goods and industries. This enables us to be sure their garments are made fairly, as all manufacturing falls under UK labour laws (including the minimum wage), EU labour directives and International Labour Organization conventions. In addition they can easily visit their factories to assess working conditions on a regular basis. This protects the Frank & Faith brand from "sweat shop" manufacturing.
Frank & Faith support and nurture small factories and businesses in Britain. These are often in areas of deprived communities with high unemployment. Their aim is to retain specialist skills fast disappearing in the British Isles. This also provides work for people who have trained to this skill set in the UK. A further benefit is the reduced environmental cost of transporting raw materials and clothing around the world. Their garments have significantly less clothes miles than many garments manufactured in the Far East.
Frank & Faith does business with factories based not only on price and margin but also focuses on providing a deeper commitment by working with the factories to grow their capabilities so they are a viable resource for Frank & Faith as well as other brands.

FLAMMA's Collection is beautiful, stylish and unique. Every bag is made by hand to the highest quality with great passion and exquisite attention to detail.
Flamma's inspiration is to combine the craftsmanship of traditional bag making with modern unique design and care of the environment, since they only use the best quality organic leather. The cattle and their pastures are free of synthetic pesticides and their feed is organic. The leather is also vegetable tanned and greased with natural oils, so nothing artificial has been used in the tanning process. Flamma use special artisan stitching constructions and do not use highly toxic glues. This ensures the quality of their leather is long lasting and the beauty of each bag enhances with use and age.
Today, when environmental pollution is threatening us and with the leather industry being one of the worst offenders in terms of environmental damage, Flamma's leather becomes even more precious because it is ecologically sound. Products made of this leather, such as shoes, clothes and other leather goods are comfortable to wear and easy to use.
There are only a few tanning yards in the world where vegetable tanning is applied, in particular 'pure' vegetable tanning (when no wet blueing is used).

What distinguishes Raw Gaia is that they use only 100% organic, raw and vegan ingredients such as raw cocoa (cacao) butter and cold-pressed oils as well as various essential oils. Importantly, their products are made following a process that avoids temperatures beyond 40°C. In this way, the life force of the ingredients and all their antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, etc., are retained. All these nutrients are then available to nourish your skin, without leaving any surface residues.
All Raw Gaia's products are certified vegan by The Vegan Society. Their products have not been tested on animals. In addition, they have carefully screened their suppliers to ensure they do not carry out tests on animals either.
As much as possible, they source their raw materials through fairtrade, to ensure that growers receive a fair price for their work. Raw Gaia's raw cacao butter and the Living Herbal Face Pack are examples of fairtrade ingredients.
Materials & Ingredients: Raw Gaia's products do not contain any nasty petrochemicals, artificial colourants and parfums, glycols, lauryl sulphates, parabens, preservatives, synthetic additives, bulking agents or hidden ingredients.
Moreover, by following a special process that carefully avoids temperatures above 40°C, they ensure that none of their products contain heated oils and fats. When these are used in skin care products –even in the so-called most natural ones-, they are actually one of the worst offenders to skin beauty. Heated oils and fats contain highly toxic transfatty acids, which may be absorbed into the cell membranes, causing them to become porous and weak. They also lead to the creation of free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that have lost an electron. Collagen, a protein molecule that constitutes 80% of the dermis, is particularly susceptible to free radical damage, which includes wrinkles, lingering scars and stiff collagen.
In contrast, Raw Gaia's cold-pressed fats and oils, kept at low temperatures, help to beautify the skin, strengthen the cell membranes and restore nutrients to the tissues.

Something for everyone to smile about. The good news is, Kingfisher's great for everyone - so long as you've got some teeth to clean. It's especially suitable for children, vegetarians, homeopathic users, vegans, Halal and some Kosher diets and people who want good, healthy teeth. Kingfisher is approved by the British Dental Health Foundation.
In the bleak old days before Kingfisher, there were no toothpastes made in this country. Then, many toothpaste manufacturers didn't give details of ingredients on their packaging. So, for example, if you brushed your teeth with their toothpaste, you may have been putting methythdroxybenzoate (a synthetic preservative) or benzo sulphimide (saccharin) in your mouth without knowing what it was.
So, in 1988 Richard Austin set about making a natural, cruelty-free toothpaste, at a reaonsable price. Kingfisher Natural Toothpaste in Fennel flavour was launched at the International Food Exhibition in London that year.
Materials & Ingredients: Kingfisher clearly list all the ingredients. Which is important when you consider that you absorb toothpaste into your body through your teeth and gums. Kingfisher Toothpastes contain no artificial preservatives, colourings or flavourings, no GM ingredients and no animal products. Kingfisher does not test on animals.
Company based in: Norwich, England Products made in: UK Accreditations: The only natural toothpaste that is approved by the British Dental Health Foundation. Kingfisher Toothpaste Aloe Vera and Tea Tree Mint has been Ethiscored and given a rating of 16 out of 20, joint top of all the natural toothpastes they rated.

Some Words From Geobel As a mum of twins I wanted a cloth nappy I believed in and as a fabric supplier to the nursery industry I found just the perfect fabric in Bamboo Dream. The name Geobel is actually a combination of my twins names George and Isobel born New Years day!
At Geobel we are trying to promote Bamboo as the must have cloth nappy, both as an eco friendly
fabric and an eco friendly product. The fact that it is also antibacterial is perfect for the NHS and we are hoping to develop prefolds in the future.
Materials & Ingredients: Made from the highest quality East Asian Bamboo, the fabric is naturally antibacterial. Bamboo's criss cross texture creates microscopic openings in the fibres that guarantee truly exceptional moisture absorption and quick drying properties.

Cred Jewellery believe that jewellery should not only be judged by the beauty of the finished item, but also the impact that its creation has had on the people that mined the metal or gemstone and the environment.
Their unique partnerships enable us them to provide exceptional jewellery that you can wear with the knowledge that there has been no exploitation of any kind in its creation.
There are wide ranging social and environmental problems linked to the global jewellery supply chain. From child labour and the exploitation of indigenous people groups to environmental degradation and disaster.
Designed in and created in England, with the metal coming from abroad, Cred is commited to providing a positive fair trade alternative that pays special attention to human rights, labour standards and care for the environment. Their pursuit of this has led to unique partnerships with small-scale mining communities (Oro Verde), cutting and polishing co-operative workshops, master jewellers and stone setters. All of whom are dedicated to the idea of fair trade jewellery.
Materials & Ingredients: Each piece of jewellery we create comes with its own social and environmental certification issued by IIAP and the Cred makers mark.
