Friday Feature #6

This week’s Friday feature is all about a company called Aduna, who are aiming to use the health and beauty market to benefit the communities that produce their products.  The word “superfood” has integrated itself into our vocabulary recently enough to mean that the spell check on my computer doesn’t recognise it.  And yet, it now an everyday term. Most of us eat superfoods as part of a balanced diet, making the most of their superior qualities to enhance our health and wellbeing.  But do we stop and think about where they come from? I’ve never really put that much thought into…

Friday Feature #5

This week, I have discovered the most fabulous fashion brand. As you may be aware, I’m not the most fashion conscious person in the world. I only buy fashion from either companies whose ethics I genuinely support and believe in (no sweat shops and definitely no animal cruelty) or from charity shops.  I don’t buy from charity shops for financial reasons but for moral reasons. I believe in reusing, recycling, upcycling and giving money to worthy causes.  When I do buy clothes, I love the surfing style. It suits me, there’s no pressure to look perfectly groomed and immaculate and…

Friday Feature #4

My Friday Feature each week aims to raise awareness of an ethical business and a charity. This week, I have reviewed an online paediatric first aid course from Spearhead Compliance Training Ltd. Not only is this course essential if you haven’t had any first aid training, but it costs just £20, a small price to pay for saving a child’s life. Of this, £10 goes to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. If you’ve got children then, like me, you may be wondering whether you should do a paediatric first aid course. So before you read on, just have a quick look at…

I am really starting to love writing these Friday features, it is heartening to discover that there are some fabulous ethical, generous businesses out there that are doing their bit for charities and communities.

So without further ado, allow me to introduce… Artisan Designs UK Gaynor initially set up her fabulous bespoke handcrafted jewellery company in order to produce hand crafted, unique pieces at a price that more people could afford. In fact, she makes limited…

Friday Feature #2

Today’s Friday Feature is about a fabulous business that is leading the way when it comes to ethical purchasing, particularly in the fashion and beauty world. I also want to raise awareness of an incredible animal charity that really, really needs our support at this time of year. TIFF (UK) In recent years, I haven’t bothered too much with fashion and beauty. The reasons for this are twofold. Firstly, I work from home and rarely go out in the evenings, so I really don’t need to waste money on making myself beautiful (or at least vaguely presentable) just to stay…

Friday Feature #1

I have always loved blogging, particularly so since moving to my new site, I am genuinely excited about sitting down each day to blog. Like everyone though, I often get a bit of a writers block. This got me thinking that there really is no need to be short of a subject, since there are so many amazing businesses and charities that I could be promoting. I have always felt strongly that ethical purchasing was essential, and that companies going the extra mile to do their bit for charity, the community, fair trade or animal welfare should be supported. So…
